Athlete of the Month: Sydney Montoya
The East Volleyball team started the season as back to back champs. Sydney Montoya tells us the urgency for one more title was there."We've won two state titles in the past and that just fuels you, you know. You want to feel that moment again and you'll do anything to do it."How does 3 peat sound? "Great, it's amazing. I love it," Montoya said. "It's so special. We've worked so hard throughout the season and during the off season and we took no time off."While thanking her teammates, her older sister Jessica helped too."Just working hard you know. It comes back to all of my family who pushed me," She said. "My sister who always had me in the front yard playing when I was 4 years old, so just experience I guess.""She is always solid and knows she comes to play. She is one of our most consistent players, she's a great kid," Coach Dan Box added. "She is sort of our glue, you know."
