Rocky women add former Oregon Player of the Year

BILLINGS —Coach Wes Keller announced today the signing of Morgan Baird, from Portland State University to her letter of intent to join the Rocky Mountain College women’s basketball program.

Morgan Baird, a 5-foot-11 forward, joins the Battlin’ Bears after a four-year high school career at Coquille High School, in Coquille, Oregon and a stint at Portland State University. Morgan averaged 23.8 points per game, 10 rebounds per game, and 6.1 assists per game as a senior. She was Oregon’s 2A Player of the Year as a junior; Conference Player of the Year twice; and three-time All-State selection. At Portland State, Morgan was Academic All-Big Sky Conference.

“Morgan is a great addition to our program,” Keller said. “She brings a great work ethic on the court and in the classroom. She is versatile, will be able to play multiple positions, and is a tremendous rebounder. We are excited to help her progress over the next few years.”

Baird plans to pursue a degree in history and political science.

“I picked Rocky, because it is the perfect combination of a strong basketball program, great coaching, and high academics,” she said.
