“It is unbelievable, knowing that all my hard work has paid off,” said Lamont who plans on pursuing a degree in nursing. “I feel an amazing sense of relief with the knowledge of knowing where I will be heading to further my academic, professional and athletic future.”
Lamont’s high school career came to an end early on in November after the Eagles fell to the Broad Run Spartans in the Conference 14 Girls Volleyball Tournament quarterfinals. Lamont was recognized by the Conference 14 coaches earning second team All-Conference honors.
“Because the high school season has now ended, and I do not settle for average, I will strive for continued good grades and volunteer work, along with maintaining my relationships with not only my teachers, but my peers,” said Lamont who plays club volleyball for Northern Virginia Volleyball Association. “I plan to excel in club volleyball through the remainder of the school year in preparation for college volleyball.”
The Shenandoah Hornets finished their 2013 campaign 14-17 before losing in the quarterfinals of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships to No. 1 Washington and Lee including Heritage High School graduate Christina Kamis.
The 5-foot-7 Lamont plans to “add character, diversity and energy to the team” while serving as an outside hitter and defensive specialist for the Hornets.
