Nina Winkler, of Battle Creek, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play women’s basketball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the Bruins next season.

Winkler was a four-year starter at St. Philip Catholic Central High School, the 2017 district Class D champions, averaging 9 points, 3 assists and 3 steals per game her senior season and earning All-City and All-SCAA honors in St. Phil’s Southern Central Athletic Association conference.

“It’s great for us to get a player and person of Nina’s caliber,” Dic Doumanian, KCC’s new head women’s basketball coach, said. “The first thing that jumps out at you about Nina is how hard she works on the court. That is what our program was based on before and that’s where we want to be again.”
