MSU-Northern's McKeon Transfers to Carroll

Posted: Updated:
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.
