Montana State University's women's basketball program and the Bobcat Club are the beneficiaries of a $200,000 estate gift.

The MSU Athletics Department announced Friday that the gift was made by Ellen Kreighbaum, a pioneer in Bobcat women's athletics.

The women's basketball team will get $170,000, while the remaining $30,000 will go to the Bobcat Club for student-athlete scholarships.

Kreighbaum was instrumental in starting the MSU women's basketball program in the late 1960s. She also helped establish the women's athletic department at MSU.


Kreighbaum is a regular at Bobcat women's basketball games.
