Former Wildkat basketball star Sydney Hovde will be playing for the Skylights of Montana State University- Northern next season, the school announced last week.

A member of the 2017 Wildkat state championship team, the 6-foot Hovde led the Northwest Athletic Conference in offensive rebounding this season, averaging five per game while playing an average of 28 minutes for the Cardinals.

“Sydney is a good addition for us. She brings size and rebounding, and she comes in with a quality year of college basketball under her belt at North Idaho. She plays hard and will be a great fit in our program,” Skylights head coach Chris Mouat said. “The fact that Sydney does a great job on the offensive boards is big for us. She averaged five a game and is really efficient around the basket. She finishes well inside and gets excellent position.”

This season, Hovde averaged 10.4. points and 9.1 rebounds for the Cardinals, with several breakout games, including a 23 points and 11 rebound performance against Columbia Basin on Feb. 7, a 20 rebound game against Blue Mountain Jan. 27 and 16 points and 17 rebounds against Lower Columbia in the NWAC Tournament March 8.

The daughter of Mike and Teri Hovde, Sydney plans on majoring in nursing at MSU-Northern.
