Rileigh McGree will keep competing in Maroon.

The Butte Central senior who won three titles at the 2021 Class A State track meet announced on Twitter Thursday that she will compete on the University of Montana track team.

The announcement comes nearly four months after McGree won the long jump and both hurdles races as the state meet in Laurel. She jumped 17 feet, 8 ¾ inches to keep the family long jump title in the family.

McGree won the 100-meter hurdles in 15.74 seconds before claiming the 300 hurdles crown in 46.15.

She will look to add more prep titles next May when she closes her career at the Class A State meet in Butte.

McGree can officially sign with the Grizzlies in November.
