A pair sign with JC women’s wrestling
The Jamestown College women’s wrestling team recently inked two new athletes.
Amy Fearnside of Morgan Hill, Calif., and Daisy Mendez of Baldwin Park, Calif., have both signed letters of intent to enroll at Jamestown College and compete with the Jimmies next season.
Fearnside, who will graduate this spring from Live Oak High School, earned first-place finishes in 2012 at the Central Coast Section, CIF Folkstyle State Invitational and USA Open Women’s Freestyle State Championships. She has received the Farmers Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award and the Senior of the Year Award.
“Amy is a great wrestler who finished her senior year with a state championship in the state of California which is one of the states with the highest number of female wrestlers,” Jamestown College women’s wrestling coach Tony DeAnda said. “Not only is Amy a great wrestler, but she is also a very giving person who has recently traveled with her church to Mexico to help the less fortunate. We look forward to her representing Jamestown College.”
Fearnside is the daughter of Brian and Melanie Fearnside. She plans to major in radiologic technology or business at Jamestown College.
Mendez, who will graduate this spring from Baldwin Park High School, is a state placewinner, CIF Finalist and recipient of the Pursuing Victory Award and Coach’s Award.
“Daisy is a good wrestler and student who has only been wrestling for four years,” DeAnda said. “In this short time she was able to place eighth in the tough state of California her senior year. She also comes from a traditionally strong female program at Baldwin Park High School, where Coach Mike Duran has had many female wrestlers place at the California state meet.
“We believe Daisy will surprise a lot of people in her first year and are pleased to have her attend Jamestown College.”
Mendez is the daughter of Michelle Torres. She plans to major in nursing or health and fitness administration at Jamestown College.
