More National Recognition for Montañana
Senior Garners Second Preseason All-America Nod
Oct. 18, 2004
NEW YORK, NY - Senior forward Anna Montañana has been named a preseason second-team All-American by the Women's Basketball News Service. It is the second preseason All-America accolade for the Valencia, Spain native, who was a preseason honorable mention selection by Street & Smith's last month.
Montañana is only one of two Atlantic 10 performers to earn preseason All-America recognition from the Women's Basketball News Service. She was joined by Tara Boothe of Xavier, who earned preseason third-team honors.
Montañana is one of two returning starters for the Colonials this year. She started all 30 games for GW in 2003-04 and was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team. She ranked second in the A-10 in rebounds per game (7.6) and steals per game (2.33) last season. In addition, Montañana finished third in the league in assists average with 5.37 helpers per outing. She averaged 12.0 points per contest in 2003-04 and established a new personal best with 21 points in GW's win against Dayton. Montañana had one of the most productive games in school history on January 31, 2004 when she became the second Colonial to record a triple-double (11 pts., 12 rebs., 13 assts.) against La Salle.
The Colonials will open the 2004-05 campaign with an exhibition game at the Smith Center on Saturday, Nov. 6 versus Everyone's Internet and tips off the regular season on Friday, Nov. 19 at Georgetown at 7:30 p.m.
