Sunset soccer player stands alone, stands out at signing day ceremonies
With Dallas ISD pooling its fall and spring signees together for one event, over 100 students took part in the district's signing day ceremony - grouped together by high school.
Among the football and basketball players, diminutive Selena Montelongo stood out.
She was the only DISD soccer player to sign with a Division I program - signing with Texas-Pan American - and the only athlete from Sunset.
UT-Pan American's women's soccer program will begin play in the 2014 season, as part of the university's transition into the WAC.
Montelongo said it was a little lonely, "being all by myself."
But the forward, who plays club soccer with FC Dallas Premier, was besieged by family and friends in the post-event photo op.
"It's the best, a dream come true," she said.
