She averaged 8.2 ppg, 6 rpg, 2 assists per game, 2 steals per game her senior season.  She was named First Team All-Conference in the River to River Conference and was selected to the Herrin Turkey Thanksgiving Tournament All-Tournament team. 

Blakely joins Savannah Ketchum (post, Bergman, AR), Allyssa Joyner (forward, West Plains, MO) and Abby McBride (guard, Marshfield, MO), Fallon Bowman (post, Pawhuska, OK) for the 2024-25 class. 

“Blakely is a great addition to our Lady Cat family!  She is a person of high character, is competitive, and is dedicated to improving her craft as a player.  Her development at the three-point line will pay dividends as a college player.  Blakely is a competitor and will get after it defensively.  Her style of play will fit right in with our team.”
