More runners are needed for a spring semester running class that began Monday at LTCC.

The class, which meets Monday and Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 5:50 p.m., is taught by by Lake Tahoe Community College coach Terry Adams-Schmidt, who was recently selected as USA Track and Field Pacific Association runner of the year.

Schmidt encourages all interested athletes, including those who merely want to get fit for the summer as well as those interested in going out for the team, to sign up for the fitness-building class.

“It’s a fun, low-key preconditioning class,” Schmidt said.

The South Lake Tahoe Babe Ruth league will meet Thursday night in the Lake Tahoe Community College Board Room.

From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. is a board of director meeting with the managers convening from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The public is welcome.

Twin brothers Cavin and Brad Ross of the South Tahoe Wrestling Club brought home first- and second- place medals, respectively, at the Nevada State Wrestling Championships April 4 in Tonopah.

Cavin won his weight division by pinning an opponent who had previously beaten him. Brad has had an impressive year by taking second place in the state championships in his first year of wrestling.

Coach/dad Doug Ross, himself a member of the first South Tahoe High School 1968 wrestling team, was pleased with the increased technique repertoire noticed in both wrestlers during this tournament against the top wrestlers in the state of Nevada.

Both wrestlers have qualified to wrestle in the USA Wrestling Western Regional Tournament in Butte, Mont., in the later part of June. Western Regionals include all wrestlers who qualified in 10 Western states. Winning in the Western Regional would qualify the wrestlers to compete in the nationals, which will be in Fargo, N.D.

This year seven South Tahoe club wrestlers to qualify for the Western Regional. The other wrestlers in addition to Brad and Cavin Ross are Garret Gibb, 1997 state champion; Miles Wallace, second in state; and Ryan Wallace, sixth in state. Randy Henson and Kevin Maslow are able to petition for entry based upon their previous tournament performances.
