Iowa City West Diver Jacintha Thomas Named Athlete of the Week

By Scott Saville, Sports Director

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Jacintha Thomas started competing in gymnastics at age five, but has only been diving for two years.

She took second place at the state tournament this year.

"When I started diving, I had no intention of even making it to state, let alone getting second," she said. "So it's pretty amazing."

Thomas has been named KCRG-TV9's Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Cedar Rapids Toyota.
