CHADRON – Kayli Rageth, a western Nebraska native, joined the Chadron State College women’s basketball program at the start of the spring semester, head coach Tim Connealy announced.
Rageth, a 6-foot junior forward from Kimball, previously played at Hastings College for three seasons. She’ll have one year of eligibility remaining at Chadron State.
“She is a prototypical power forward,” Connealy said. “She can shoot the basketball and guard multiple positions inside and outside. She is athletic and she will be able to help us with rebounding.”
Rageth was a valuable shooter at Hastings. She hit 37 percent from 3-point-range for her career, including 45 percent as a sophomore.
She set a number of records at Kimball High, including scoring the most points in school history with 1,386.
Rageth said she’s enjoying Chadron State even though she can’t play an official game until next season.
“I like it here a lot,” she said. “Our team is young but we are going to continue to get better and improve.”
