Two-time state champion Vince Taweel edged Hereford's one-time champion Josh Asper, 8-7, at 140 pounds to pace fourth-ranked host Hammond to a 35-30 victory and its second straight Class 2A-1A state duals title and its record fourth overall before a screaming crowd of nearly 1,000. Freshman Josh Halper (103) clinched the win, erasing a 30-29 deficit by pinning Max Rosen in 3:28. Double-winners for Hammond (23-1), which also earned a 39-36 semifinal win over No. 5 Liberty (25-5), were Eric Yee (130)

A year ago, Hereford's Anthony Schabdach only won seven more times than he lost. "In tournaments, I'd come in fourth, maybe third," said the 5-foot-7 Schabdach. "I'm usually the shorter guy in matches. But hopefully, when I stand on the podium, I'll be just as tall as everyone else." Of the four Hereford champions crowned at last night's 10-team Francis Scott Key Christmas Tournament, none stood taller than Schabdach, whose 215-pound crown was his first in high school. Sophomores Jeremy Keil (112)

It's a sad time for parents when their children stop believing in Santa Claus, the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny. All too soon they stop accepting everything mom and dad say as the truth, and begin a long slide into the sulky, jaded teenage years. So how, exactly, do children develop into cynics? It's not entirely clear, researchers say. But a recent study concludes that youngsters begin doubting some of what they hear around age 7, and they develop the ability to recognize bias -- the unintentional skewing of facts -- at about 11. "They are not as gullible as we might expect them to be," said Candice Mills, assistant professor of psychology at the University of Texas in Dallas and co-author of the study in Psychological Science.
