BANGOR — Former Ellsworth girls’ basketball standout Trinity Montigny scored eight points Friday evening in her first game as a member of the Husson University women’s team.
Montigny scored her first collegiate points on a 3-pointer with 2 minutes, 53 seconds remaining in the first quarter of Husson’s home contest against the University of Maine at Presque Isle. She then made a second triple with just eight seconds left in the opening frame before rounding out her scoring effort on a jump shot with 7:35 remaining in the first half.
Montigny played a total of 26 minutes off the bench as Husson (1-0) claimed a 74-50 victory over UMPI (0-1). In addition to her eight points, Montigny also recorded four rebound and one assist and committed only one foul.
Montigny, who graduated from Ellsworth High School in June, was the Big East Conference’s scoring leader as a junior and senior. She finished her high school career with 1,083 points to become only the second 1,000-point scorer in Ellsworth girls’ basketball history.
Husson’s rematch against UMPI, which had been scheduled for Saturday in Presque Isle, was canceled. The team’s next game will be at home against UMaine-Farmington at 1 p.m. March 6.
