“My goal for the team and program is to create a culture of growth, development, and positivity. Each day is a new opportunity to become a better version of ourselves.  We must challenge our students to become confident and effective leaders.  They must take ownership and pride in the development of the program.  This is possible through consistency and respect in communication between coaches, players, and athletic personnel,” Montesinos said.
