YORKTOWN, N.Y. > LACROSSE
Ranagan, a junior middie at Johns Hopkins, scored the game-winner with five seconds left in overtime to defeat top-ranked, defending NCAA champion Virginia 11--10. Two weeks later he scored a career-high four goals to lead the Blue Jays to their 12th straight home win (17--6 over Albany). The only sophomore to earn first-team All-America honors in 2011, Ranagan has 12 goals and five assists through Sunday.
FARMINGTON, CONN. > TRACK AND FIELD
Cayla, a senior at Phillips Andover, ran her first competitive 10K in an Olympic trial B-standard cut of 33:17.28 at the Tufts Snowflake Classic for the No. 2 girls' national high school finish of all time. In November she won the USATF New England Regionals open division 6K (20:54), and in February she was second in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix junior mile (4:51.37). She will run for Stanford this fall.
BAY SHORE, N.Y. > WRESTLING
Jamel, a senior at St. Anthony's and a three-time New York Catholic schools champ, was named state wrestler of the year last week. He set a state tournament record fastest pin (0:08 in the first round) en route to his first state title (132 pounds), in February. An aspiring professional entertainer, Jamel sang an impromptu rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner when a recording failed to play before the finals.
