Three sophomores from Citrus College have decided their next destination. That trio includes Olivia Montgomery, Jaelyn Wilson, and Jasmin Longtin. Montgomery is moving on to UC Irvine while Wilson is attending UC Riverside. Longtin will also stay close to home at Biola.
Montgomery was a first team All-WSC South Selection this past year, averaging 14.7 points and 6.4 rebounds a game. Montgomery’s highlight came against Bakersfield, when she had a career high 28 with 18 rebounds.
Wilson, a product of Colony High school, averaged 15.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, and 1.1 steals a game with 13 double-doubles. Her career high of 30 came against Antelope Valley.
Rounding was a key contributor for Citrus over the last two seasons, providing energy and rebounding for the Owls. As a sophomore Longtin averaged six points and six boards a game.
Three Citrus College football players are moving on. That trio includes offensive linemen Byron Smith (Colony HS) and Philip Romano (Covina HS), along with defensive back Ryan Solomon (Monrovia HS).
Smith is headed to Division I Southeastern Louisiana. He was a two year starter for Citrus, playing during the 2011 and 2013 season, while spending a red-shirt season in 2012. As a freshman, Smith was a 1st team All-SCFA West Conference honoree.
Romano, who will attend Division II Northwestern Oklahoma, was also a two-year starter on the Owls’ line, earning All-SCFA Central Division National Conference Honorable Mention honors in 2012 and 2013.
Solomon, who has signed on with NCAA DII Missouri Southern State, has three years of eligibility, after sitting out the 2013 sophomore season as a red-shirt. As a freshman in 2012, Solomon recorded 25 tackles, one tackle for a loss, and recovered a fumble.
