Montes Named Graduate Assistant Track and Field Coach
02/02/2005

FROSTBURG, MD — Anabell Montes has been named a graduate assistant coach for the Frostburg State men's and women's track and field programs and will assist with the hurdles and field events.

"I am really happy to become part of the track and field programs at Frostburg State," Montes said. "I am also very thankful to Head Coach Felix Moreno for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow professionally and personally as a graduate assistant. I am confident in becoming a positive influence not only for the student-athletes but also for the coaches."

Montes comes to Frostburg after an outstanding track career at Warner Southern College, an NAIA school in Lake Wales, Fla.

As a junior and senior, she won the NAIA national championship in the 400-meter hurdles, earned All-America honors and was named her team's MVP. She also was the runner-up in the 400-meter dash at the Kinston Relays in Jamaica.

In cross country, Montes won conference and regional championships as a sophomore and the conference crown as a freshman.

Montes, a native of Colombia, won the national championship in the 4x400-meter relay and was the national runner-up in the 400-meter dash at the 1999 Colombia National Championships.

That same year at the South American Championships, she won the 4x400-meter relay and was fourth in the 400-meter dash.

"I am pleased to have Anabell as a member of our staff," said Bobcat Head Coach Felix Moreno. "She brings an excellent background and I am certain she will do an excellent job for us."

Montes earned her bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Warner Southern College in Lake Wales, Fla., in December 2004. She is pursuing her master's degree in human performance at Frostburg State.
