FORT WAYNE - Four members of the Carroll Wrestling team had every reason to hug and even shed a tear after the second round of the IHSAA Semi-State Wrestling meet on Saturday at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
They were State qualifiers.
The tears, however, were not tears of joy, but tears of sadness for a teammate who had his trip to the State Finals ripped away on a bad break.
Senior Spencer Malcolm, leading his second round match against Adams Central sophomore Kaine Luginbill 2-0, was called for an illegal move which caused Luginbill to injury default, leading to Malcolm's disqualification, one win away from a trip to the State Finals.
Malcolm entered the tournament at 39-2 and was favored to advance all the way to the Semi-State Championship match. Instead, he was forced to wrestle back to fifth place earning the status as an alternate at 160-pounds. Luginbill continued to wrestle, to a cascade of boos, and placed third.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Carroll Girls Swim & Dive team exceeded the expectations that Head Coach John Gibson had for them when the season began back in November.
As the season went along, his expectations grew, and with an 18th place finish in the IHSAA State Swim & Dive Championships on Saturday now in their rearview mirror, his expectations for next season may be as high as they have ever been.
Carroll swam in seven events during Friday's preliminaries, earning Saturday swims in five of those events, tallying 37 points.
Carmel scored 397 points to win the State Championship with Penn in a distant second with 189 points.

FORT WAYNE - Two minutes into Friday's Sectional semifinal, Carroll and Snider were still scoreless and the thoughts of a close, competitive game filled the gym at Snider High School.
Two minutes later, Snider had squelched any of those thoughts.
The Lady Panthers went on a 9-0 run that spanned just 80 seconds and closed the quarter with a 12-2 run that had them out in front 21-4. From there, Snider (19-3) never trailed in a 69-35 win that moved them into the Sectional Championship game against Northrop, who defeated North Side 53-33 in Friday's other semifinal.
The big scoring runs were the theme for Snider, who used a 10-2 run and a 8-0 run in the second quarter to build a 41-13 halftime lead and their 11-2 run to open the third quarter ballooned their lead to 52-15.
