She's running her way into Section V history books and inspiring other teenage girls. The young lady took the Webster Schroeder Football Team into uncharted territory Tuesday night when she became the first female in Section V history to score a touchdown.
Jensine Falu-Montes is a running back and her big moment came in the fourth quarter. Schroeder went on to beat Wilson 49-8, an exciting win for both the team and Falu-Montes.
Jensine Falu-Montes breaks out the pom-poms for the Webster Schroeder cheerleading squad during the winter. But in the fall, Falu-Montes is wearing pads and cleats and people are cheering for her, especially after she scored a touchdown, the first of its kind.
Jensine Falu-Montes won more than just $20, she made history. The Schroeder running back became the first female to score a touchdown in Section V history with a three yard run late in the fourth quarter.
Jensine started playing football last year for East Rochester/Gananda but then moved to Webster for her senior year. She is listed at 5'1”, 121 pounds. And while she may be looking up at everyone on the field, it didn't stop her Tuesday night.
Head coach Kali Watkins called 22 lead, a play he will never forget. What began as a bet has evolved into so much more.
Tuesday night's 49-8 win was the third game Jensine has played in this season. In the winter, she will be cheering and in the spring, she will be running track.
