The University of Montana Western head women’s basketball coach, Lindsay Woolley, has announced the signing of another standout. The UMW Bulldogs have added Sierra Higheagle from Pasco, Wash.
Higheagle is a 5’ 9” shooting guard from Columbia Basin College. She has been a two0-year starter at Columbia Basin College. While playing for CBC she averaged 12 points per game, four rebounds and two steals. She was part of a NWAACC championship team and was voted to the east region second team following both years at CBC. During her high school career she was a three-time state champion in Idaho and Wash., while earning all-tournament team honors all four years and named to the 1A all-state team.
“Sierra brings some length and athleticism to our perimeter. She can do a lot of things well and we expect her to make an immediate impact,” said Coach Woolley. “She has won multiple state championships in high school as well as the NWAAC championship in 2014 so we know she will bring a championship mentality to our program.”
Off the court Sierra has been a member of the National Honors Society and was named to the NWAACC all-academic team. Sierra will study biology while attending Montana Western. She is the daughter of Dominic and Jessica Higheagle.
