Montoya signs to play for Silverswords

New Mexico Military Institute standout setter for the Bronco volleyball team for the past two years, Daniella Montoya, has received a scholarship to continue playing for the Chaminade University Silverswords, an NCAA division two school in Honolulu, HI.

Ms. Montoya likely holds the single-season and career record at NMMI for sets, with 1397 last year, and 970 more as a freshman. This bests Barbara Lasic’s numbers in 2007-08, who had 772 and 1340 sets, respectively.

At Chaminade, Montoya will face competition for the starting setter position from one returning sophomore, and another freshman recruit by first-year Silversword head coach, Kahala Kabalis.
