MI HIJA CELIA EN LOS MEDIOS DE COMUNICACIÓN.
The Lady Rattlers return seven players from last year's team that finished the season with a 17-10 overall record under first year head coach Kyle Spencer.
"We were very young last year, starting four freshmen most of the season," Spencer said. "Bringing back such a strong core will be big for us. They'll be able to lead the freshmen in the right direction and show them what it takes to compete at a championship level right away. We're bringing in athletes from all over the world, but besides all being talented players, they are driven to come to Otero to learn their degrees and represent the institution and community.
Garcia is a 5-11 wing from Spain. She was selected three times for the Castilla-Leon state team and two times for the Galicia state team which is likened to our All-Region and All-State honors. Garcia led her team to back-to-back U18 Spanish D1 championships and averaged 22 points and 10.4 rebounds in the U18 Spanish Tournament.
"Celia has great overall skill and can play almost any position," Spencer said. "She can attack from the wing, shoot the ball or play with her back to the basket. Her length and versatility will be great additions. She is also a humble athlete with high character and we're really looking forward to having her on campus."
