CWC basketball player signs with NAIA

Central Wyoming College graduate Kiara Skinner signed a letter of intent to play basketball for the College of Idaho NAIA team on Thursday, May 7.

Skinner, who recently graduated will continue her education in exercise science. She will play power forward for the Idaho team.

“She is a tough player to guard,” said Serol Stauffenberg, head coach for CWC women’s basketball team. “She is tough and her small size gives her that advantage and she shoots well from the three-point line.”

Skinner made the All-Region basketball team and the All-Tournament team this year. In the 2014-15 season Skinner averaged 10.2 points and 5 rebounds per game.

“She will only be playing the one sport and she will continue to get better and better,” Stauffenberg said. “She is a phenomenal athlete; in volleyball, basketball and track.”

“I have a lot of memories here; one that stands out is when we beat Casper at Casper with the last shot,” Skinner said. “All the staff has been awesome and it’s like one big family here.”

Skinner is originally from Cody, Wyo.
