SLIDELL, LA. > TRACK AND FIELD

Gabrielle, an eighth-grader at First Baptist Christian School, won the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 meters, and anchored the victorious 4 × 400 relay at the Class C finals to reach 19 total state running titles (including cross-country, and indoor and outdoor track), dating back to fifth grade. Undefeated against Louisiana runners this year, she holds the state's top times in the 1,600 (5:06.10) and 3,200 (11:07.56).

MIKE PELLETIER

BURNT HILLS, N.Y. > VOLLEYBALL

Pelletier, a 6' 5" junior outside hitter at Springfield College, was named most outstanding player in leading the Pride to a 3--0 sweep of Carthage to win the NCAA's inaugural Division III men's volleyball championship. Hospitalized in 2011 by an ulcerative colitis attack that cut short his season and stripped him of 60 pounds, Pelletier had a match-high-tying 10 kills and a team-high seven digs in the final.

STEPHANIE RICKETTS

SAN JOSE > SOFTBALL

Ricketts, a senior righthander at Hawaii, threw her 800th career strikeout during a 10--3 complete game victory over Utah State in the regular-season finale. The win gave the Rainbow Wahine their fourth Western Athletic Conference regular-season title. Ricketts, who led the team to the WAC semifinals, finished with a 1.24 ERA and was named conference pitcher of the year for the third straight time.
