The Northern Arizona women’s program has finally announced their signings for the November signing period, and boy they signed a big class. The six player they signed is the most by any Big Sky women’s or men’s program and includes Shayla Batson of Mater Dei high school in Irvine, California; Shakila Boler from Roosevelt high school in Burnsville, Minnesota; Khyra Conerly from Alameda high school in Oakland, California, Shay May of Xavier Prep school in Phoenix, Arizona; Trinidee Trice of Alemany high school in Riverside, California; and Sendy Valles of Roosevelt high school in Milliken, Colorado. It appear to be a very good class, but Shakila Boler could be the star of this group. She was one of the top prospects in Minnesota and the country before blowing out her knee last year. Her stock dropped because of her inactivity, but if she is healthy by next fall could take the Big Sky conference by storm.
