The 5-foot-5 senior ran the fastest 100-meter dash in state history and also broke the tape in the 200-meter dash at the Class 6A state meet this past season, leading the Rattlers to second place as a team. Montgomery clocked a wind-aided time of 11.09 seconds to win the 100, surpassing the similarly wind-aided record set by US Olympic Trials champion Sha’Carri Richardson in June. That time, and her winning effort of 22.94 in the 200, ranked as the nation’s No. 1 performances among 2021 prep girls competitors. She also anchored the second-place 4x100 relay foursome at the state meet. She won the 100 at this year’s adidas Boost Boston Games in 11.27, which ranked as the No. 4 wind-legal U20 time in the world this year.
Montgomery has maintained a B-plus average in the classroom. She has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field on scholarship at the University of Oregon this fall.
Montgomery has volunteered within her school system’s Peer Assistance Leadership program, mentoring at-risk elementary school students.
