Congratulations to Kendal Montgomery and Jared Fernandez for earning the December-January Comanche Athlete of the Month! These two athletes have performed above and beyond expectations, and we would like to recognize their tremendous accomplishments. Here is a rundown of what these two athletes have achieved in December and January:
Kendal Montgomery– Kendal Montgomery is a junior at Canyon High School and has been on varsity water polo since her freshman year. She is the leading goalscorer, with 40 goals so far this season. While she finishes her opportunities, she also creates them. Kendal has 22 assists this season as well. It’s hard to believe that she is only a junior. Keep your eyes on Kendal Montgomery- the best is yet to come. Canyon is lucky to have such a talented and dedicated athlete.
Jared Fernandez– Jared is a senior at Canyon High School and is currently ranked 1st in Orange County and 14th in the state. Jared has a win-loss record of 33-6, with 18 wins by pin. His only losses came from competitors ranked top 15 in the state. Jared has yet to give an offensive point to any Orange County wrestlers. Jared has placed in all 7 tournaments he has competed at, taking 1st or 2nd in 5 of the events. He is also a two-time CIF and Masters Qualifier. Masters is the tournament before state, and this year Jared hopes to place in the state tournament. Jared has been inspired by the class of 2016 who have pushed him to set his goals as high as he can. Here is what Jared has accomplished during his season so far:
- 1st @ Cossarek Westminster (32 Teams)
- 4th at La Costa Canyon (64 teams)
- 1st Mann Classic Servite (45 teams)
- 2nd @ Tournament of Champions Cerritos College (70 teams)
