Lake Chelan graduate signs with NIC women's basketball

Cassy Pilkinton, a senior at Lake Chelan High School in Chelan, Wash., has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for North Idaho College next season.
Pilkinton was named to the Washington State 2A all-state girls’ basketball team this year and averaged 17 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals for Chelan, which finished fourth at the state tournament.
Pilkinton is a McDonald’s High School all-American nominee and was named MVP of the Central Washington Athletic Conference in both volleyball and basketball.
“Cassy is going to give North Idaho College an excellent all-around basketball game and tremendous leadership”" said NIC Head Women’s Basketball Coach Chris Carlson, who was named as this year’s SWAC Coach of the Year. “We lose four all-league sophomores next year and Cassy should be able to contribute to our team immediately.”
North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho plays in the Scenic West Athletic Conference (SWAC) of the National Junior College Athletic Association. NIC captured the women’s league title this year with a 16-2 SWAC record and was 24-7 overall. The SWAC includes the College of Southern Idaho, Salt Lake Community College, Dixie State College, College of Eastern Utah, Snow College and Colorado Northwestern.
