HELENA, MONTANA - Carly Syverson has come a long way from her days as a member of the Sunnyside High School girls basketball team.
Syverson, who graduated from Sunnyside High School in 2001, is now a member of the Carroll College women's basketball team.
The Lady Saints are 9-1 in the Frontier Conference following this past Saturday's 82-62 win over Fresno Pacific in the Mountain West Bank Classic hosted by Carroll College in Helena, Montana.
Syverson transferred to Carroll from Spokane Falls Community College, where she averaged 12 points, 5.5 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.
Syverson, a 5'9" junior, plays guard for the Lady Saints.
"Carly has great point guard skills and makes an immediate impact at the position," said Carroll Coach Shawn Nelson. "She can really push the ball up the floor and is a very good scorer. She is a great athlete who can really get out and pressure the basketball."
In the season opener for Carroll on Oct. 8, Syverson led the Lady Saints in scoring (13 points) and assists (8), as Carroll won 79-65 over the University of Regina.
In this past Saturday's game against Fresno Pacific, Syverson finished with 9 points and 4 assists.
Syverson is currently majoring in business at Carroll College. She is the daughter of Jack and Terry Syverson of Sunnyside.
