Hive Mind, Activate! Need Fact Check on Sports-Related Question

In a meeting earlier today, our own Nancy Nichols said something that I found amazing. Because I am a journalist (aka a trained skeptic), I will not believe what she told me until it has been fact checked. Because I am lazy, I am turning to you, the FrontBurner Nation, to fact check it for me.

Here’s what Nancy told me: in 1978, at the age of 26, she was the general manager of the Dallas Diamonds, a team in the Women’s Basketball League. She claims this made her the youngest female GM in professional sports. (Jeanie Buss came along a few years later and apparently undercut Nancy’s claim.)

My question to you: true or false?
