Villalba Inks with Lindenwood University for Wrestling

El Paso, TX - The Hanks High School girls wrestling team has built a dynasty, winning four-straight state championships. College programs across the nation have begun to take notice of the talent.

Knights sophomore, Shania Villalba signed her national letter of intent to Lindenwood University in Missouri on Thursday. It's a long ways from home for Villalba, but she's excited for the opportunity.

"I was really nervous. I'm an only child and I'm really close with my family. This is going to be a really different experience for me, but I'm excited and I'm ready for the challenge," said Villalba

Villalba won an individual state championship in her junior year at Hanks, while placing second in state this past season.
