Carroll Women’s Basketball signs McKeon




Carroll College women’s basketball head coach Rachelle Sayers announced Wednesday that Kacie McKeon is joining the Fighting Saints program after transferring from MSU-Northern. 

McKeon, a 5-foot-4 guard originally from Butte, Mont. spent the past two seasons in Havre playing for the Skylights (53 games) and will have two years of eligibility at Carroll.

“We are excited to have Kacie in the program, she has given up a lot to be a Saint and I think that says a lot about her as a student-athlete,” Sayers said.

Last season, McKeon averaged 5.2 points per game and had 14 points in MSU-Northern’s first-round victory versus Columbia in the NAIA National Tournament.

“Kacie is a great scorer, she has very good range and can play both guard spots.  Her experience in the Frontier Conference and at the national tournament will be a huge asset for our young team,” Sayers added.

McKeon, who scored in double figures four times last season including a season-high 24 points against Nebraska-Kearney, will join All-Frontier Conference selections Bailey Snelling and Kalee Junkermier in the backcourt for Carroll next season.

“I’m looking forward to furthering my education at a great school as well as having the opportunity to play with great players and learn from coach Sayers and her line of exceptional [assistant] coaches,” McKeon said.

The Fighting Saints were 14-14 last season and 7-9 in conference play.

Former Townsend star Annie Anderson signed with Carroll College women’s basketball Friday. After playing last year at Spokane Community College in Washington, Anderson reunites with former high school teammate Baylee Watson. The two players — who stand at 6-foot-1 and 6-2 — were affectionately known as Townsend’s “Twin Towers.”

Saints coach Rachelle Sayers said Carroll recruited Anderson hard out of high school, and the program is thankful she decided to return to her home state to continue her college hoops career.

“She and Baylee, with the success they had in Townsend, just have a great chemistry,” Sayers said. “We knew playing together they would be a perfect fit.”
