Former Quincy Lady Jacks wrestler Cynthia Diaz earned a third-place finish at the NCWA Womens National Championships in Allen, Texas on March 13 and 14.

Diaz attends Grays Harbor College and is a member of the womens wrestling team.

Diaz set a high pace early in matches and used her conditioning to her advantage, wearing down opponents before dominating them in later rounds, her coach Kevin Pine said.

Diaz’s only loss for the tournament came against the two-time champion Chelsea Wilson from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute. Diaz defeated opponents from the University of Texas, Santa Rosa Community College and the University of California Los Angeles.

The team placed third in the tournament.
