HAVRE -- Montana State-Northern women's basketball coach Chris Mouat has announced the signing of Cameron Mooney, a 6-foot-2 post player from Salt Lake City, Utah. Mooney recently finished her sophomore season at Salt Lake Community College, where the Bruins finished with a 22-7 record. As a freshman, Mooney played at NCAA Division II Dixie State University, where she shot 60 percent from the field.

This season, Mooney averaged six points and four rebounds per game while shooting 56 percent from the field. She helped Salt Lake Community College earn a final ranking of No. 18 in the nation in NJCAA Division I basketball and a national tournament bid. She had season-highs of 13 points and seven rebounds.

"Cameron is a major addition to our program" said Mouat. "She gives us added depth in the post and brings a lot of valuable collegiate experience to our team. I think she is going to be a great fit in our system at both ends of the floor. She has excellent hands and feet and finishes really well. She has already proven that she is a great percentage shooter, and she did it against top-tier competition."

Mooney is a 2018 graduate of Skyline High School in Salt Lake City. As a senior, she was a second-team all-state selection. As a junior, she was a starter on the 4A state title team.

Mouat added, "From the get-go, I had a good feeling about Cameron. I think she has big things in store for her and we are looking forward to getting her to Havre and on campus. She has a great personality and should make an easy transition to Northern and our program. I really believe that she has a chance to thrive in what we do. We are thrilled to have her coming to the Skylight program and Northern family."

Cameron is the daughter of Sean and Christina Mooney, and she plans on majoring in education at MSU-Northern. Both of Cameron's parents were NCAA Division I athletes at the University of Utah, with Sean playing basketball and Christina playing softball.
