PRESCOTT LINE

OXFORD, MICH. > WRESTLING

Prescott, a 6'1" senior at Oxford High who is ranked 12th in the nation in the 220-pound weight class, went 4--0, including three pins in under one minute and a 5--2 win in the final, to win the 215-pound bracket at the Detroit Catholic Central Invitational. Last year he won that weight class at states to help the Wildcats to the D-1 team title. A running back, Prescott was named Michigan's 2011 Mr. Football this fall. He had a league-record 2,454 rushing yards and added 138 tackles as a linebacker.

ALEX LAURETANO

MORRIS, CONN. > WATER SKIING

Lauretano, a senior at Lousiana-Monroe, won gold medals in the women's tricks event and overall and earned the silver in jumping to help the U.S. to team gold at the World University Championships in Chile. She also placed fourth in the slalom en route to her competition-high 2,800.67 total points. Last year, after breaking a wrist and dislocating a shoulder in a crash on her penultimate jumping attempt at collegiate nationals, Lauretano won the title with a 150-foot effort on her final try.

Thomas, a senior at Chaminade High, won the two-mile at the Hispanic Games in New York City with a meet-record 9:10.97—the fastest in the state and second fastest nationally this season, through Sunday. At the Molloy Stanner Games a week later he ran the state's second-fastest mile this season (4:15.67). Last year Thomas won the 1,600 meters to pace the Flyers to the Catholic High School Athletic Association title. In November he qualified for outdoor nationals. Next fall he'll run at Penn.
