The Huffington Post
Writes Olympian Edwin Moses: "As schools deal with budget cuts and try to figure out the best ways to maintain and improve their graduations statistics, sports programs are among the first budget lines cut.

California sets up race between high school, club competitions
The Wall Street Journal
California is to high-school swimming as Texas is to high-school football. The Golden State is the sport's scholastic epicenter. Until now, the two sides of the state never battled it out. There was no such thing as a California statewide swim meet. The first state championship meet has created a dilemma for California's high-school swimmers who are also aspiring Olympians. The meet falls during a crucial training period for summertime club swimming meets.

The high school transfer game heats up in Virginia
The Virginian-Pilot
While transfers are nothing new, Virginia football coaches and school administrators say they are alarmed at how often athletes are changing schools — and how many are doing so. "We're in a little bit of awe about the whole phenomenon. High school is becoming more of a business and that's sad that it's getting to that degree," said Great Bridge football coach Pete Gale.

Bleacher Report
It is midafternoon, and David Wells is back in uniform at a place he left long ago, working on a field named in his honor and surrounded by a bunch of teenage boys who have won his heart. That Point Loma High School in San Diego, incredibly, has produced two of the only three pitchers ever to throw a perfect game for the Yankees only makes this circle more complete.

College game might have found formula with flat-seam balls
Orange County Register
Offense across the nation is up significantly, but as two of the nation's best teams, UCLA and USC are perhaps two of the best examples of the impact of the NCAA's decision to switch to a new flat-seam baseball — a change made with the intention of reigniting the offense that had been drying up since 2011. The results have spoken for themselves.

According to new data from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics, the reported prevalence of bullying among students ages 12 to 18 dropped to 22 percent after remaining stubbornly around 28 percent for the past decade.

Arizona State batter hit by ball, catches it, throws it back to pitcher
Sporting News
VideoBrief Arizona State freshman Johnny Sewald pulled off arguably the most incredible yet perplexing play of the weekend. During the sixth inning of the Sun Devils' game against Washington State, Sewald was drilled in the lower back by pitcher Layne Bruner. As Sewald turned into the hit-by-pitch, he pinned the ball against his back with his right arm, then casually threw the ball back to Bruner like it was no big deal.

Michigan high-schooler attracts national attention with bat taping business
MLive
A Flushing, Michigan kid has a unique idea to thank for the tens of thousands of followers on social media and phone calls from major league baseball players in recent weeks. Nic Besant, 17, launched "Tape Kings" late last year out of his parents' home, the result of summers spent taping wood bats on his 18-under travel prospect team, the Lake Area Dodgers. He estimates he's taped more than 500 bats since he first began, and his growing list of clients stretch from coast and coast. Louisville Slugger and other bat manufacturers have since reached out to have samples done.

Iowa students put faces to mental health struggles
Dubuque Telegraph Herald
Katie Stringer doesn't want another person to feel alone in their mental illness. The Hempstead (Iowa) High School junior put a face to mental health issues when she shared her story during a Dubuque Community School Board meeting. Stringer began to diet in eighth grade to feel better about herself. That decision spiraled into a dangerous combination of anorexia, bulimia, depression and self-harm. She was one of six high schoolers who launched "End the Trend: An Effort to Destigmatize and Address Children's Mental Health" during the school board's visitors' and open forum.
