Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale's Dillon Card made another valiant run at a state championship Saturday at St. Paul's Xcel Center but found BOLD's Manuel Garcia blocking in his way. Garcia defeated the BHV senior standout 8-3 in Class A's 220-pound finals to deny him the ultimate victory in the three-day tournament. Garcia brought a full season and a 36-1 record into the championship match. Card, spent most of the season as a spectator after suffering a wrist injury in football, was 11-0. ""It was just not Dillon's day," BHV head coach Mike Barthel said.

Put 32 cats in a sack, tie it shut and you pretty much have the National Football League. These cats were on the prowl recently at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where they were hunting for the talent they need at the annual scouting combine. More than 300 college football prospects ran, jumped, pressed, spun and did whatever they could to dazzle their prospective employers. These are not the kind of employers that have to see your degree and your grade point average.
