Wade Steinlage, Assistant Athletic Director for Communications
OSKALOOSA –Head Women’s Wrestling Coach Tucker Black is excited to announce that Angelita Altamirano has signed a Letter of Intent to compete for William Penn in its inaugural campaign next year.
Altamirano, the daughter of Michelle Altamirano and stepdaughter of Michael Gonzalez, is a native of Las Cruces, N.M. and is currently a senior at Onate HS. She plans to major in Computer Science at WPU.
Altamirano is a recent state champion and was named the New Mexico Wrestler of the Year.
“Angelita has stood out to me from the very beginning as not only an exceptional athlete, but a great person and exceptional student,” Black said. “She has been a model athlete when it comes to communication and enthusiasm, and will without a doubt be a key piece to building a program full of tough girls and good people.”
“From the moment I met Coach Black, I felt an automatic connection,” Altamirano said. “His coaching is similar to my current coach’s style, which will make for a smooth transition. When he reached out to my family and I, he was always positive, encouraging, and made me feel like I was already a Statesmen. I look forward to the growth and opportunity under Coach Black.”
