Area Female Athlete: Monson's motivation is in the family


What little motivation Lindsay Monson needs she gets from her brothers.

It’s not the brotherly love one would expect.

Monson says her family is very sarcastic and so it goes with three older brothers, who enjoyed success in three sports. If Monson has an off-night for the Pierz Pioneers, her brothers are there to “congratulate” her.

She tries not to have too many off nights. So far the three-year varsity center for the girls basketball team hasn’t.
