Baer helped Colstrip advance to the Class B State tournament at the Butte Civic Center, where the Colts fell to Fairfield and Deer Lodge. He scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds in the loser-out loss to Colstrip.
The school has not officially announced the signing of Baer, who plans to major in metallurgical engineering.
