In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, during Harry's third year, Cedric captained the Hufflepuff Quidditch team which beat Gryffindor when Harry Potter fell off his broom due to the prescence of Dementors. Cedric didn't know this until he caught the Snitch, and he demanded a rematch, but even Oliver Wood, the strict Gryffindor Quidditch captain, said they had won fair and square.

His father Amos Diggory was extremely proud of Cedric for "defeating" Harry Potter, saying that the better man won, but Cedric was extremely embarrassed about his father's bragging. The Weasley twins, Fred and George, however, continue to harbour ill feelings towards Diggory for that defeat.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Cedric was selected to be the Hogwarts champion in the Triwizard Tournament. After Harry was mysteriously selected as well, Draco Malfoy made Support Cedric Diggory badges for the Slytherins that could be changed to read Potter stinks.
