Saints' Snelling Leads 16th Ranked Carroll Women

Posted: Updated:

Let's rewind to February earlier this year, to Carroll's final home game of the regular season.

It was a night that was meant to honor the Carroll seniors, but underclassmen Bailey Snelling lead the team with 17 points, reminding Saints fans that the program has a bright future.

Now in her junior year, Bailey has not taken her foot off the gas pedal. In her 2nd year as a starter, Bailey is second on the team in scoring and assist, and leads the team in steals.

"Love the game first of all, and so it just provides so many opportunities. Especially going through college and you learn to manage your time and you meet new people," Snelling says.

Bailey comes from Judith Gap, a town with a population of about a 100 people. But there are times when it seems like the entire state of Montana knows who she is

"Everyone in the community knows who Bailey is. Every airport we walk through they'll say "Hey! Carroll College! That's where Bailey Snelling plays," says Saints Head Coach Rachelle Sayers.

Bailey is one of those players that you'd want in a typical point guard. She can dish the rock and she's one of the top 3 point shooters in the country. But her attitude off the court is what truly makes her unique.

"She is a true friend. Everyone wants to be around her. She makes us laugh. Like everyone laughs. It's like no one's not laughing," says fellow Junior guard Kalee Junkermier.

"I like to have fun," Bailey adds. "There's a time to take things serious but there's a time to loosen up and have some fun and I think growing up I had fun with the game."

They say leaders are made, not born, and Sayers depends on Bailey to be an example to her Sophomore and Freshman teammates. Because you never know when Bailey's Senior night comes along, it could once again be an underclassmen who leads the team in scoring.

Allowing Bailey to realize that she continued to play a part in helping to keep the program's future bright
