Franklin’s Gallegos signs with UTEP


Franklin high school girls basketball star Katia Gallegos signed her letter of intent to play college hoops at UTEP on Friday.

The Cougars do-everything talent is averaging 25 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists per game as a senior at Franklin. She chose the Miners over a couple other schools and is excited to remain home to play for the hometown Miners.

Gallegos is part of a strong 2019 UTEP recruiting class that Kevin Baker’s staff is bringing in. In addition to starring for the Cougars, Gallegos has played for Mexico’s junior national team two years in a row.
