Central Michigan head wrestling coach Tom Borrelli lectures heavyweight sophomore Jarod Trice after losing his final match at the 2010 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championship tournament in Omaha, Neb. Trice earned his first All-America honors with an eighth-place finish, though he suffered an ankle injury in his first-round match and was pinned in the last second of the bout. "I popped my ankle out in the first round and I didn't get the motion going that I needed in my last match or in the tournament," Trice said. "I have to come back next year. I have to start it up again and make it to the top of the podium."
An umpire attempts to separate Homer High School's Mitch Pease, left, whose arms are wrapped around the head of Concord's Mike Kaplinski at the beginning of a fight at third base. Both benches nearly cleared out to join their teammates, resulting in both teams forfeiting the Division 4 district championship game. "(Kaplinski) steals third, why do their players have a right to jump in, hit him and tackle him?" said Concord coach John Ropp. "That's exactly what happened. He slid into third, the pitcher was all ticked off and went chest-to-chest with him and the shortstop come running and drills him in the back. Why does their player get to charge our player and start throwing haymakers when the game is still going?"
