Pilgeram Signs Letter of Intent to play volleyball for Carroll

Posted: Updated:
Rayna Pilgeram followed in the footsteps in her parents Wednesday when she signed a National Letter of Intent to play Volleyball for the Carroll College Fighting Saints.

The 5-11 setter is the daughter of Carroll Hall of Fame basketball player Bill Pilgeram and Candice Pilgeram who played basketball for the Saints for two seasons.

The younger Pilgeram earned second-team All-State honors at Capital High School last season and holds the school record for assists in a match at 45.

“Rayna has so much untapped potential,” head coach Moe Boyle said.  “She's very good at the high school level and yet she has a lot of ability that she will grow into over her four years at Carroll.”

Pilgeram's height will make a big impact in the Carroll lineup.

 “She is extremely athletic and her height will give her the ability to play above the net,” Boyle said. “When your setter is that tall it is better for the hitters and it will give her opportunities to attack which will keep opposing defenses on edge and really help our offense.”

Pilgeram was also a three-year Academic All-State Honoree with a 3.95 GPA. She was also on the honor roll all four years, is a member of the National Honor Society and received Rotary Student of the Month honors and was a KFBB Senior Spotlight Recipient.

“I couldn't ask for more from a student-athlete,” Boyle said. “Rayna is a perfect fit for Carroll College. She can balance athletics with the academic rigors at Carroll. We are incredibly excited to see her in purple and gold.”

The Saints have three games remaining in their regular season schedule starting with Montana Tech Thursday night in Butte at 7 p.m.
