What is already a star-studded 2014 recruiting class got even more star studded for the Montana State University-Northern women’s basketball program this week.
MSU-N head coach Chris Mouat recently announced the signing of Belt star Katie Fetterer to an NAIA national letter of intent. Fetterer was recently named the MVP of the Class C state tournament last month, and comes to Northern with a great basketball resume.
“Katie is tough and aggressive,” Mouat said. “She has excellent speed and strength and is an outstanding defender. She is aggressive to the rim, knows how to draw fouls and is a very good free throw shooter.”
Fetterer helped Belt to a third consecutive Class C title this year, while earning All-State honors for the third year in a row. She is also a two-time Great Falls Tribune Super State honoree. During her time at Belt, she set records for steals in a career as well as assists in a season. She scored 1,157 total points and was a 71 percent career free throw shooter (292-412). At Belt, she was a three-year starter and four-time All-Conference pick. She has been selected to play in the annual Montana-Wyoming All-Star series this June. Fetterer played under the tutelage of former Chester star Jeff Graham at Belt.
“Katie is a winner and a good leader,” Mouat said. “She comes from one of the top programs in Montana, and she has been well-coached along the way. She brings great intensity to the floor and plays as hard as anyone. We are looking forward to her progress in a Skylight uniform.”
Fetterer is a member of the National Honor Society, and a four-time Academic All-State selection. She is the daughter of Dave and Debbie Fetterer and is planning on majoring in nursing at MSU-Northern.
