Monte competed in both Water Polo and Swimming at Fullerton then matriculated to UCLA where, under the coaching of Brud Cleveland, received All Coast honors in Water Polo and captained the swim team. While at UCLA, Monte set the Pacific Coast Conference record in the 200-yard butterfly. Upon 1951 graduation with a BA Degree, he entered the United States Navy and was eventually stationed at the United States Naval Academy where, under the coaching of John Higgens, made the 1952 United States Olympic Swimming Team, placing ninth in the 200 meter butterfly at Helsinki. After the service, Monte entered graduate studies at California State University, Long Beach where he received his Masters Degree and Teaching Credential in 1955.

It is unfortunate that the 1980 Olympic Water Polo Team was unable to perform at the Olympics as they were considered one of the finest teams ever to represent the United States and would have been a strong contender for the Gold Medal. During his career, exclusive of the boycott, every Olympic team which Monte head-coached won an Olympic Medal - an unparalleled achievement. Swimming Hall of Fame Monte was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in Ft. Lauderdale,Florida in 1991 and the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame in 2006.
