Glacier Peak High School alum Paisley Harding will have a chance to make her hometown WNBA team.
The Seattle Storm announced Thursday they have signed Harding, formerly Paisley Johnson, to a training camp contract.
Harding is coming off a standout five-year college career at Brigham Young University, where she finished sixth on the program’s all-time scoring list with 1,938 career points.
Harding, a 5-foot-9 guard, was a four-year starter for the Cougars and a first-team All-West Coast Conference selection each of the past three seasons.
As a fifth-year senior this past season, Harding averaged a career-high 17.1 points per game while helping lead BYU to a 26-4 record and a program-best No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. She also averaged 3.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest.
Harding scored at least 14 points per game in each of the past four seasons. She helped lead the Cougars to three NCAA Tournament appearances during that span, including a pair of first-round victories in 2019 and 2021.
Harding also had a decorated high school career at Glacier Peak, where she helped lead the Grizzlies to the Class 4A state championship game in 2017.
The Storm open training camp on Sunday. They have two preseason games — at home against the Los Angeles Sparks on April 23 at Climate Pledge Arena and on the road against the Phoenix Mercury on April 28.
Seattle’s regular-season opener is May 6 against the Minnesota Lynx at Climate Pledge Arena.
