Now, she’s set to play four more.Montigny will continue her basketball career at the college level next year when she suits up for Husson University in Bangor. The outgoing Ellsworth senior finalized her decision over the weekend before informing Husson head coach Kissy Walker.“It feels good to finally know where I’m going,” Montigny said. “I’ve known for the past two years that playing basketball in college is what I was going to do, and Husson has always been a place I’ve looked up to.”At Ellsworth, Montigny was a major contributor from the moment she set foot on the court as a freshman in 2016-17. She was a three-time All-Big East Conference first-team selection and was named Big East Player of the Year this past season after leading the league in scoring for the second year in a row.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOn Jan. 29, Montigny became the second player in Ellsworth girls’ basketball history to score 1,000 career points as she poured in 42 in the Eagles’ 80-35 Senior Night win over Foxcroft. Her final career victory came Feb. 11 as she converted a layup with 1.2 seconds left to give Ellsworth a prelim win over Mount Desert Island and earn her first trip to the Cross Insurance Center.Montigny applied to 16 schools during her college application process. Her final decision came down to offers to play basketball at Husson and Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H., and although both schools were appealing, the chance to play for a Husson program fresh off its fifth consecutive North Atlantic Conference championship was particularly so.“It was a long process, and I really liked Colby-Sawyer, too,” Montigny said. “I’ve been thinking for a while, and I made up my mind Saturday and told Kissy that day [that I would be coming to Husson]. She was super excited about it.”Montigny has been in touch with several members of the current Husson team, some of whom she’s seen at camps and faced on the high school basketball circuit in previous years. She’ll also be joining Southern Aroostook’s Makaelyn Porter, a friend and AAU teammate, in Husson’s 2020 recruiting class.After riding her choice to attend Ellsworth to great success, Montigny is ready to prove herself for one of Division III’s top programs. Now, Husson’s newest Eagle hopes she’s forged the way for the next generation of Ellsworth Eagles to establish legacies of their own.“I hope I was a role model the young kids could look up to,” Montigny said. “I’ll always remember the people and the community at Ellsworth. They prepared me greatly, and I’m so glad I made the decision I did.” Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020last_img read more
