For the second consecutive season, Florida State senior forward Natasha Howard (Waite) has earned All-ACC First Team honors as selected by the Blue Ribbon Panel, announced on Tuesday by the league.

The first-team honor that comes in arguably the top conference in women’s college basketball adds another piece of history for the Toledo, Ohio, native. Howard’s selection to the 2013-14 All-ACC First Team makes her the first Seminole in the ACC era (1992-Present) to earn multiple first team honors. Last season, she was chosen for the first team by the Blue Ribbon Panel and second team by the ACC head coaches.

The goal of every high school wrestler is to win a state championship, by any means necessary.

Clay junior 132-pounder Richie Screptock didn’t look at his third-place showing at the Division I district tournament as a major setback, he saw it as an opportunity.

Jay Nino isn’t giving himself any time to sit back, relax and enjoy the Division III state wrestling title he won in Columbus last Saturday night.

Genoa’s junior 220-pounder secured the title by pinning New Paris National Trail freshman Ben Sullivan in 5:03 in the title match at Ohio State University’s Schottenstein Center.

“Right now I’m just going to enjoy it, enjoy the feeling,” Nino said. “I’ll start getting ready for freestyle and the Disney Duals, and I’m already going to start hitting the weight room tomorrow (Monday). I feel good; I’m not that beat up. You’ve got to have that mindset that, yeah, I am the (defending) state champion next year, but you don’t know who’s out there and you don’t know what they’re capable of. You can’t take this for granted.”

Nino, who finished 65-2, is the Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Co-Wrestler of the Year and will receive a plaque from the Oregon business.

Nino qualified to the state tournament with a third-place finish at the district tournament. His only loss there was a 4-3 semifinal loss to Archbold senior Travis Jaramillo, whom Nino beat 3-2 at the Archbold Duals earlier in the season.
