Santa Barbara Sports Figure of the Month: presented by American Riviera Bank

-

Each Month, Presidio Sports recognizes a local sports figure for their extraordinary contribution to the Santa Barbara athletic community.

It is our way to recognize those who have made a positive impact, whether it is an inspirational athletic performance, a lifetime achievement award, a philanthropist, or just a special story worth sharing.

This award is made possible by American Riviera Bank.

CURRENT SPORTS FIGURE OF MONTH: Monica Jones

Monica Jones is the BFF — best friend forever — to local swimming.

Her history proves it. In 2009, she was part of a group that got the Los Banos del Mar pool declared a local and state historical landmark and raised over $1 million to prevent the City of Santa Barbara in from pursuing a plan to create a grandiose harbor entrance at that spot. In 2009, she raised enough money to save the Sunday adult swim program at Los Banos and keep the Ortega Park swimming pool open.

Jones, 73, is at it again. This time, she’s out to raise funds to cover the cost of swim lessons for local youth.
