Menlo's Jackson earns CCC Player of the Week honors


Menlo College's Tiana Jackson, ranked first among NAIA women's wrestlers at 123 pounds, earned the Cascade Collegiate Conference's Red Lion Player of the Week award. She was honored for her performance at the 2020 U.S. Marine Corps/NWCA Multi-Division National Dual Meet over the weekend.

Jackson won all three of her matches to help the Oaks win the team championship of the event.

She began her weekend with an 11-0 technical fall win over No. 11 Monica Mendoza of Oklahoma City University.

Jackson followed that with a 8-0 decision over No. 8 Charlotte Fowler of second-ranked Campbellsville in a close match decided in the final bout.

Jackson completed the weekend with a 10-0 technical fall victory over third-ranked Julia Vidallon of No. 1 Life (GA).

The fourth-ranked and defending national champion Oaks downed ninth-ranked Oklahoma City 33-10, Life 25-18 and then knocked off Campbellsville in the finals, 22-19.

The Menlo College women's wrestling team is an associate member of the CCC, which is sponsoring the sport for the first time.
