COLUMBIANA OH- Crestview volleyball had a lot of pieces to move around in the summer leading up to the 2020 season. Losing eight seniors in one year and being just as explosive is a daunting task. However, if Alisha Auer has taught us one thing in her 15 seasons at the helm of the program, it is to never doubt her ability to put together a great squad. New faces have come through, and some familiar faces have evolved into new roles. One of those familiar faces for the Rebels is Lucy Montgomery.
Last season, Lucy was they young setter leading a bunch of seniors on the floor, things have changed quite a bit. Now although Lucy still sets while she is in the back row, she has become one of the most feared outside hitters while she is in the front row. She has taken the next step in her growth as a player, and she took it upon herself. Coach Auer says in the summer, Lucy came to the coaching staff and told them ” i want to hit.” They couldn’t ignore what she brought to the outside position. It did not take the Rebels long to adjust to the new look.
Lucy has been able to put up amazing stats this season. She is a member of the 200+ club in kills, assists, and digs. Montgomery has 312 kills, 318 assists, and 210 digs. She has had multiple triple doubles on the season, and is a big reason why her team is 22-2 and in the district championship.
Lucy took the time to catch up with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig this week. They discuss taking a new role on the team, how the Rebels have figured things out so quickly, and much more. Rebel fans you wont want to miss this exclusive player profile “Introducing the Lucy Show”
