Delta High School’s Keely Porter has signed a letter of intent to play basketball and softball while studying for a degree in dental hygiene in Rangely at Nortwestern Community College.
Porter, a standout student athlete for the Panthers, chose Northeastern because attending college in Rangely will allow her to play two sports while staying closer to home.
The most influential person to guide Porter toward Colorado Northwestern was the Spartans’ softball coach, Steve Kissel. According to Porter, “Coach Kissel influenced me because he told me his plan and recruited people who all have the same goal for the program.”
Kissel is in his first season at Colorado Northwestern and has a total of 28 years of experience as a collegiate head coach with positions at Dana College, Minot State (N.D.), Pittsburg State University in Kansas, Oklahoma Panhandle State, University of Central Arkansas, Western Texas College, Dakota State and Colorado Northwestern Community College.
Breauna Story and David Porter are Keely’s parents.
