After handling every opponent in his very first wrestling tournament, Brian Eveleth Jr. - then 7 years old, 50 pounds and grappling in sneakers - got the ride of his life. After Eveleth's hand was raised, Severna Park Green Hornets coach Frank Spiegel hoisted him atop his shoulder and paraded him around the mat. Eveleth flashed a wide smile that was brighter than a brand-new light bulb. It turned out to be the start of an outstanding run for the Eveleth family on the mat.

Brian Eveleth Sr. calls his younger sons -- Jeff and Matt -- the "second generation" of his talented wrestling family.His oldest son, Brian Jr., did a fine job setting the standard, winning a state title during his senior year at Chesapeake High in 1992 and then going on to the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a captain and NCAA qualifier.Just as rewarding for the younger Brian these days is the opportunity to give back as an assistant coach under Tom Slichter at Chesapeake, where Jeff, a 112-pound junior, and Matt, a 103-pound freshman, have become a dominating one-two punch at the lower weights for the Cougars.

It's 6:30 a.m., five hours before his first class on a typical Monday, but freshman Matt Eveleth is making his way to the University of Pennsylvania weight room. He knows he's going to sweat, ache and push himself to his breaking point. After all, 7 a.m. means "circuit training" done NCAA wrestling style: 12 different exercises, 30 seconds at a time, no rest. "It's insane," Eveleth said of the day's first workout. "It's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life." If Eveleth is lucky, the day's second workout - a two-hour wrestling session at 4 p.m. - won't include a "grind match," which coach Roger Reina describes as an extremely intense "live" match that can last an entire hour.

Children at Severna Park's Benfield Elementary School have collected items to combat a familiar evil - boredom - for an unusual community. Their gifts of salad dressing, aerosol deodorant and sisal rope will be given to zookeepers at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, who use the items to enrich the lives of the animals in captivity. To reward their efforts, an "animal ambassador" from the zoo visited a school assembly Monday with several black-and-white guests: two African black-footed penguin chicks and a laughing kookaburra, an Australian bird with a penchant for chortling.

David Lunn delights in the electricity that runs through the Bob Carpenter Center every time Delaware plays a home basketball game. But the 6-foot-4 junior guard from McDonogh had to experience the atmosphere mostly from the sidelines two of his first three years at the school. He couldn't stay healthy long enough to stay on the court. Even in his one so-called healthy season last year when he averaged 7.4 points while starting 21 games and playing in 29, Lunn had to fight off a double hernia and minor knee surgery.

Chesapeake's 11th-ranked wrestling team has a "big four" few, if any, teams in the state can match. The Eveleth brothers -- state champion Jeff (119 pounds) and runner-up Matt (112) -- and Melvin Guthrie (189) are all 16-0, with John Mosca (160) at 17-1. Collectively, they have 30 pins. And collectively, with a supporting cast that's stepping up with every week, the Cougars could make a strong run at a state title. Proof of what a strong tournament team the Cougars are came over the weekend with their 257.5-point, first-place showing at the Aberdeen Invitational.
