Montpellier’s Page signs with Trine University for women’s basketball | Brian’s time

MONTPELIER – Montpellier’s Ariel Page is taking his basketball skills to the next level.

Page, a four-year senior star for the Locomotives women’s basketball team, signed her letter of intent to continue her career at Division III Trine University Friday at Montpelier High School.

“That’s great. That’s the end goal,” Page said. “Everything we worked for in high school was the only goal we wanted to achieve. So it feels good that I finished it.”

Page said one of the reasons she joined the Thunder is because of the MTI Center, which is Trine’s arena.

“They have a great gym. They get a lot of student support and the energy there is just different from any other college I’ve been to,” Page said.

Page dominated his career at Montpellier. She averaged 13 points and seven rebounds per game before the Locos’ Division III semifinal loss to Liberty Center on Feb. 19 and helped lead Montpelier (19-7, 7-0 Buckeye Border Conference) to his third consecutive BBC title this season.

During the 2020-21 season, Page averaged team highs in points (13.3 per game), rebounds (6.8), and blocks (1.3). She also earned an honorable mention for All Ohio, BBC Player of the Year, All-BBC First Team for the second season in a row, Division IV District 7 First Team, and All Northwest District Second Team. Page also earned an Honorable Mention from the BBC and District 7 Division IV in his first year.

She also collected her fourth letter in volleyball this year and broke the school record for single-season kills (236) and career blocks for the Locomotives (10-13, 4-3 BBC). She was also twice selected for the BBC first team in volleyball.

Page. who plans to study to become a high school science teacher in chemistry or biology, said she is ready to take the next steps in her life on and off the field.

“It’s great, because in high school there’s only so much you can do,” Page said. “Because after a while, once you do your feats and reach your goals in high school, you can’t really keep improving.

“So the fact that I’m now in college, I have no reputation, now I can sit here and work for this again, it’s just a great feeling.”
