Dwight Cartwright, a 177-pound junior wrestler at Keshequa High School in Nunda, N.Y., completed a 22-1 season (20 straight wins by pins) tying a national scholastic mark set in 1968-69 by a heavyweight. Sixteen of his pins came in the first period.

Perla Hewes, a Fredonia (N.Y.) State College senior and mother of three, won the 1971 Women's National Intercollegiate Squash Racquets championship. Mrs. Hewes, a 30-year-old Filipina competing in her first tournament, lost only one game in five matches.

Willie C. Williams, 6'6", of Fayette County (Ga.) High, shot 73% from the floor and 88% from the line, scored 63 points and grabbed 29 rebounds in a 105-103 loss to Manchester. It took 10 overtimes to subdue Willie, in which he had all but one of Fayette's baskets.

Bryan Gross, an eighth-grader at New Lothrop (Mich.) Junior High, grabbed 52 rebounds in one game—a school record. He totaled 256 rebounds and 228 points in 10 games while shooting 52% from the floor. The 6' center had a high game of 37 points.
