Bailey will be a great addition to our program.” Bailey earned second team all-conference honors and honorable mention all-state honors in 2009. In the classroom she maintains a 3.5 GPA and was selected to the honor roll and the dean’s list in addition to receiving academic all-state honors. “Montana Western has a good academic program with Experience One,” Branson said. “The girls on the team as well as the coaches were extremely welcoming.” Branson will graduate this spring from Sentinel High School and plans to major in pre-professional health. She is the daughter of Jayme and Laura Branson.
