Some of the hype and excitement surrounding one of the Lady Oaks' incoming freshmen, Jasmine Yanez
, continued to grow after a stellar performance at the Junior Pan American Championship in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Building off her latest string of success at the 2011 FILA Junior Body Bar Nationals back in late May, Yanez helped propel the USA team to the Junior Pan Am title.
Wrestling in the 51kg weight class, Yanez put together a strong showing with a 5th place finish, giving the USA the performance they were looking for, narrowly edging out Canada and the host country Brazil.
With the effective display, Yanez will compete in Fargo, North Dakota in next month's Nationals.
