Saints sign Milwaukee native Karrisa Baber
Central Christian College of the Bible head women's basketball coach Reggie Chapple on Tuesday announced the signing of Karrisa Baber for the 2017-18 season. Baber is the fourth member of the Saints' 2017 class.
Baber, a 5-3 combo guard, is a 2017 graduate of Pius XI High School in Milwaukee, Wis. A three-year letterman for the Popes, she came off the bench with an average of five points, four assists and three steals per game this past season.
Pius XI finished 15-9 in 2016-17 with a Woodland Conference championship. As a sophomore, Baber was part of a Pius XI team that went a perfect 27-0 and won a Division 2 state title.
"Karrisa will fit well within our program," Chapple said. "With this opportunity she has to play at this level, I am sure she will work hard to become a contributor to our program. She will add much-needed depth to the guard position. I am looking forward to working with her as she joins the Saints family."
While at CCCB, Baber plans to pursue a Bachelor of Religious Studies and a dual enrollment degree from a partner institution.
Baber joins Hunter Salmons of Madison, Mo., Damia Covington of Hayti, Mo., and Crystal Eureste of Brownsville, Texas, as members of the Saints' 2017 recruiting class.
