BUTTE — Montana Tech head women’s basketball added size to next year’s roster. Jaime Berg of Big Fork, Montana signed a NAIA letter of intent to attend Montana Tech next fall.
“We are excited to add Jaime to our basketball program,” said Coach Sanon. “She adds size and strength to our team. She can score with her back to the basket and can shoot from the outside.”
Playing all four years on the varsity squad, Berg averaged 16.8 points and 8.5 rebounds her senior season. Berg, a 6-foot-1 post, scored a season-high 30 points in a game earlier this season and had a high of 15 rebounds. Also a strong defender, she averaged 2.3 steals and 2.4 blocks a game. Berg was selected second team All-Conference as a junior. Big Fork is on their way to the
Class B state tournament in Missoula this weekend as the No. 1 seed out of the west.
Berg is set to play in the Treasure State All-Star Classic later this year. She played in the all-star event last year scoring 16 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Berg also won the three-point contest after her junior season.
Berg was also a four-year varsity student-athlete on the volleyball court. She was selected honorable mention All-Conference as a junior and was first team All-Conference as a senior.
“She is a great fit academically and athletically to Montana Tech. We couldn’t be happier for her to be an Oredigger.”
Berg is a member of the National Honor Society and intends to pursue a degree in Petroleum Engineering. Berg received the Whiting Petroleum Scholarship.
“In addition to being able to play basketball, I chose Montana Tech because of the incredible academics that are offered. Not only are the academics great, I also love the team’s style of play, coaching and the student body, faculty, and community enthusiasm. The team is very fast paced and so much fun to watch. I cannot wait to be an Oredigger.”
