Ryan Hughes surrounds him self with images of Bengal tigers. The posters and sketches tell others what he won't say--that inside this shy, blue-eyed 17-year-old beats a brave heart. The powerful creatures are Ryan's inspiration. They remind him to be brave in the face of ridicule. Between the lines of a poem he wrote about man's cruelty to the beast is the story of a boy unable to contain his outbursts, and the teachers who punish him because they don't understand his condition.

As expected, El Modena and Indio fought a closely contested battle for the Southern Section Division I-A dual-meet championship Thursday night that wasn't decided until the final matches at El Modena High School. But in reality, El Modena's Vanguards (17-1) found themselves in big trouble much earlier in the middle weight categories as the Rajahs gave Coach John Rice, who is retiring after 17 seasons, a big send-off with a 28-20 victory for their second consecutive 1-A dual meet championship.
