MILES CITY -- Cut Bank outfielder Samantha Burke has signed a national letter of intent to play softball at Miles Community College as announced by first-year head coach Shawna Juarez.

Burke hit .441 with an on base percentage of .626 and seven home runs for coach Mike Pyette's Wolves during her junior season. Burke was named team co-MVP and was a second-team all-conference selection last season and has been a three-year letter-winner at Cut Bank. The Wolves finished fourth at the State B tournament her sophomore year and second at divisionals during her junior season.

"I chose MCC because I like the smallness of the campus and the opportunities that are awaiting me," Burke said on why she chose MCC. "A couple of Cut Bank kids have played basketball at MCC and speak highly of the family feel the school and athletic programs have to offer. Finding a family away from home is something I was putting into consideration while choosing a school and MCC offers that. With my senior season getting cut short or maybe even terminated, I am more than ever looking forward to continuing my softball career as a Pioneer."
