Linsey Montgomery, originally from San Antonio, Texas, comes to Multnomah University with quite the resume. Linsey competed collegiately at Dallas Baptist University (NCAA Division II) from 2017-2020 where she graduated with a Bachelor’s in science in Kinesiology. She started running in 7th grade, and went on to be a successful track athlete in high school, winning TAAPS State in the 100m as a freshman. She lettered all four years of high-school and was a district and regional champion her senior year. She was also a member of the 4×1 and 4×2 teams that placed 2nd and 3rd throughout the rest of her time in high-school, ending her high school career as a runner up in both the 100m and 200m.
When she pursued collegiate track at Dallas Baptist University, Linsey was an NCCAA All-American and placed second overall for the indoor 4×2 and finished 8th overall in the 60m and 200m. She made appearances at every Indoor and Outdoor NCCAA competition, and when DBU switched over from the Heartland Conference to the Lonestar Conference, she qualified for the Indoor and Outdoor meets in the open 60m, 100m, 200m and 4x. In her final indoor season at DBU (before COVID in March 2020) she earned the school record in the 60m dash.
Before she graduated in December of 2020, she spent time coaching track and field with an AAU club (Randolph Roadrunners based in San Antonio from 2017-2018) and got an assistant track and field position in 2019 with a YMCA in Arlington, Texas. During this time she helped athletes qualify for both the AAU Junior Olympics and TAAF State meets. Before she came to Multnomah, she was a Volunteer Assistant Coach at the University of Oregon working with the Sprints/Hurdles for the 2021-22 season.
