By Brett Morehouse University of Montana Western head women’s basketball coach Cara Cocchiarella announced the signing of Breyenne Mosey, a 6’2” post from Bremerton, Wash., to a Frontier Conference/NAIA letter of intent. “Breyenne is a great player whose achievements on the basketball court speak for themselves,” Cocchiarella said. “She is a very talented athlete and with her size and skills, she will have a big impact on our program. She is another recruit who fits in well with the current players and she will have a lot to contribute to the campus community throughout her career at Montana Western.” Mosey will graduate this spring from Crosspoint Academy where she was a class officer in 2009 and made the Principal’s List in 2011. She has participated in the Reading Buddies program at Crosspoint Academy Elementary and the Stream Team, which works to clean up area trails and streams. She is also an active member of the Manette Community Church Youth Group. Mosey’s list of athletic accomplishments is impressive. She has participated in cross country, volleyball, soccer and track. In 2009, Mosey helped lead her cross country team to a fifth-place finish in the state. On the soccer pitch she was named a team captain in 2010 and was also recognized at the Most Valuable Player. It is on the basketball court, however, where Mosey truly shines. She has been a starter at Crosspoint Academy for four years. She helped lead the Warriors to a fourth-place finish at the Washington Class 2B State Tournament as a freshman and was named as the team’s Most Improved Player. Since her sophomore season, Mosey has led the Warriors in scoring and rebounding and has been named the team’s Most Valuable Player three times. Recognition of Mosey’s dominance on the basketball court extends beyond Crosspoint Academy. Between 2009 and 2010 she made the All-Kitsap County First Team. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 she was named to the All-SeaTac First Team and was honored as the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and Seattle Times Student/Athlete of the Week. In 2010 and 2011 she was identified as a member of the “Super Six” team by the Kitsap Sun Newspaper and the Associated Press placed her on the Class 2B All-State basketball team. Mosey will complete her high school career at the seventh annual Queens of the Hardwood All-Star Game on April 23 in Tukwila, Wash. The game features the best senior girls basketball players in the state of Washington. Mosey will be the only B player among a roster featuring stars from the 3A and 4A levels. Mosey is the daughter of Jim and Teresa Mosey and plans to major in business administration.
