OTTUMWA, IA – It was a busy weekend for area collegiate athletics with both Indian Hills Community College and William Penn University adding multiple commitments and signees, including a pair of local high school prospects making their decisions.
Two Ottumwa Bulldogs, Dante Salomon, a six-time Iowa Class 4A State Qualifier, and Blake Foy, a one-time Drake Relays and Iowa Class 4A State Qualifier, will be staying in town to compete in track & field at Indian Hills Community College. They were joined by Dorian Craven out of Duncanville, Texas, and Justin Walden, from Miami, Florida, who also jumped into the Warriors class this weekend. Temira Goods, a 7-time Iowa Class 4A State Qualifier and a 6-time Drake Relays Qualifier, also inked Sunday with the women’s track & field team.
The William Penn women’s wrestling team also added another signee as well with New Mexico native, Angelita Altamirano, pledging to the Statesmen. And the women’s basketball team nabbed a junior college prospect with sophomore guard Kyla Moore transferring from Northeast Community College in Norfolk, Nebraska. Moore averaged a team-high 16.2 points per game to lead the Hawks to a 27-4 overall record.
