Trinity Montigny of Ellsworth High School, who last season eclipsed the 1,000-point career scoring mark, is going to remain an “Eagle.”
The senior guard has announced that she plans to continue her education and her playing career in the fall at Husson University in Bangor.
The 5-foot-6 Montigny averaged 17.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.8 steals, and 3.5 rebounds for coach Andy Pooler’s team, which finished at 11-9 after a Class B North quarterfinal loss to Waterville.
Montigny was selected as the Big East Player of the Year and was a three-time, all-conference, first-team pick. She also was chosen to participate in the McDonald’s Senior All-Star Games.
“Trinity has the ability to knock down the outside shot, but can also penetrate to the hoop. She has great hustle and makes things happen,” Husson head coach Kissy Walker said.
Montigny, who played AAU basketball for the Maine React team, also competed in cross country and softball at Ellsworth High. She was a two-year basketball captain and serves as 2020 Class President, National Honor Society President and National Art Honor Society Vice President as well as a National Science Honor Society Personal Relations Officer.
“Trinity is a leader on and off the floor,” Walker said.
Montigny performs significant volunteer work including working for Friends of Rachel and helping to coach Ellsworth’s middle school girls basketball and its travel teams.
She plans to study biology at Husson.
