University of Montana Western head women’s basketball coach Lindsay Woolley announced his second addition to the 2014-15 recruiting class, Dani Baker, who signed a Frontier Conference NAIA Letter of Intent. Baker is a senior at Big Sky High School in Missoula, Mont.
“Dani is a great shooter and I could not be more excited to see her go play at a higher level,” said Big Sky High School coach Marti Leibenguth. “Dani will work hard on and off the court to become the best player and person she can be. I feel Dani will fit into the Montana Western system very well and I look forward to seeing her play at the next level in the years to come.”
Baker is a 5’ 10” forward who has received first team All-Conference honors following her sophomore and junior seasons. She has averaged 12.5 points per game and 5 rebounds during her prep career. She intends to major in health and human performance while attending Montana Western.
“Dani brings good size and shooting to the perimeter,” Coach Woolley said of his newest Bulldog. “She is an excellent student and brings great character to our program. We are really excited she chose UMW to continue her career.”
She is the daughter of Jeff and Bobbi Baker.
