Casper College’s Kammie Ragsdale signed Wednesday to continue her basketball career at Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota.
The 6-foot Ragsdale started 20 games for the Thunderbirds this pas season, averaging 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. As a freshman, she averaged 7.8 points and 3.2 rebounds per game off the bench.
Ragsdale was a two-time Class 2A all-state selection at Pine Bluffs (2018-19) before signing with the T-Birds.
During Ragsdale’s two-year career at Casper College, the team won one Region IX title, qualified for two National Junior College Athletics Association Division I Championships and won 37 consecutive games.
The T-Birds (22-2) finished this past regular season ranked No. 3 in the nation. They went 20-0 in the regular season and advanced to the Region IX championship game before losing to Otero Junior College. The T-Birds then suffered a 68-60 defeat to Three Rivers College in the opening round of the NJCAA Division I Championship.
In the 2019-20 season, Casper College (29-3) won the Region IX championship before the NJCAA Championship was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ragsdale is the fifth T-Bird to sign with a four-year school, joining Kobe King-Hawea (Texas), Natalia Otkhmezuri (Southern Utah) Marija Bakic (Arkansas Tech) and Emily Achter (Chadron State College).
