The Vanderbilt women’s bowling team added more firepower last week with the addition of Texas State Bowling Hall of Honor member Angelica Anthony, a redshirt sophomore transfer from Wichita State.

“We followed Angelica closely while she was in high school,” coach John Williamson said. “She had an outstanding high school career and we are excited that she wanted to transfer and be a Vanderbilt Commodore. We think she will fit in well on this competitive campus.”
Anthony is the fourth addition to Vanderbilt, joining three other signees — Jennifer Loredo of Fresno, California; Amanda Najoukas of Lake Ronkonkoma, New York; and Caroline Thesier of Mooresville, North Carolina.
Anthony was the San Antonio Bowler of the Year at Randolph High School in 2018 — the year Vanderbilt won the national championship. She was named Randolph’s 2018 Athlete of the Year and inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame.
A perennial contender in the national Junior Gold and U.S. Amateur championships, Anthony won the 2017 Dallas Youth Open Championship. She set the Texas state records for two-game scoring (556) and average (229). Her prep career was capped when she was inducted in 2019 to the Texas State Bowling Hall of Honor.
The redshirt sophomore was a member of the dean’s list at Wichita State in 2019 with a 4.0 grade-point average her fall semester and a 3.9 g.p.a. during the spring semester.
