In her only season at Texas Tech, during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, Cantu appeared in 16 games for the Red Raiders with eight starts at either first base, third base or designated player.

She also registered high-profile starts against No. 15 Georgia and No. 1 Washington (career-high three walks), successfully reaching base five times by walk over seven combined plate appearances spanning the two match-ups. A four-year letter winner, Cantu was a four-time All-District 24-6A First Team choice and three-time all-county selection at Clear Creek High School. She was also a member of the student council while being a part of four different National Honor Societies.
