Montana Tech’s women’s basketball program has added a guard with a lofty résumé.
Oredigger coach Carly Sanon said today that NCAA Division II transfer Keelie Lawler has signed to play at Tech. She will have three years of eligibility left, beginning next season.
The 5-foot-10 Rathrum, Idaho, product played for Western State Colorado University this past season. She played in 15 games, starting seven. Lawler averaged 5.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists a game.
“We are excited Keelie is going to be an Oredigger,” Sanon said in a statement. “She is the perfect fit at Montana Tech. She is a great student, very talented basketball player and a well-rounded person. Keelie is a knock-down shooter and can score from anywhere on the court.”
At Timberlake High School, Lawler helped lead the Tigers to back-to-back state championships in 2016 and 2017. Lawler is a four-time All-State selection, two-time All-League selection and two-time league MVP. She was named the 2017 North Idaho Female Athlete of the Year.
Lawler was also an All-League selection in soccer, cross country and twice in track and field.
Lawler, the valedictorian at Timberlake High School, plans on pursuing a degree in data science.
“I chose Tech, because of the incredible coaching staff, the dedicated and hardworking team, and the unbelievable education,” Lawler said. “When I visited Tech, it all felt right to me, it was like I was home.”
