On February 3rd, 2016 twelve athletes signed their official National Letters of Intent to play their sport of choice. Montanna Hill, striker, was one of these talented athletes to sign. She chose to sign to Coastal Carolina University to play soccer.

Throughout Hill’s career, she has scored 65 goals and holds the highest number of goals for girls soccer at Linganore.

Coach Rick Conner said she is a “goal waiting to happen.” She has led the girls’ varsity soccer team to two State Championship games.

Hill’s teammates describe her as a fast forward who is very technical on the ball. She gets back when the midfield is struggling and is always talking to players to help direct what needs to happen.

Hill had the hard task of deciding between several schools, but eventually decided on her favorite: Coastal Carolina University. “I love the fact that it is only 10 minutes from Myrtle Beach,” said Hill.

Her father, Alan Hill, says that he can’t wait  to see her play at college but is sad for her to leave. He is excited for her new coach, who, “Tells the girls exactly what they need to do to be better players.”

Mr. Hill said, “I was approximately 50% of the decision. I don’t think she would say that, but it was one of my favorite schools. The southern hospitality was great, and you’re only 10 minutes from the beach.”

Hill said that her dad encouraged her to strive to play collegiate sports. “He pushed me to give 100 thousand percent at every practice to get to the top level,” says Hill.

She thanks her parents for supporting her every step of the way and her sisters for being her biggest fans.
