    BISMARCK, ND - The North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association has given out their year end awards for high school sports.

    High School Female Athlete: Hannah Stewart, Bishop Ryan

Stewart, a 6-foot-2 junior, excelled in three sports - volleyball, basketball and softball - for the Lions this year. The all-state first team selection averaged 23 points and 11.3 rebounds per game to lead Ryan's basketball team to its second-straight Class B state championship. In the spring, Stewart helped lead the Ryan softball team to its third-straight appearance in the Class A championship game.
    
    High School Female Coach: Sara Hegerle, Jamestown volleyball

Hegerle, in her third year as head coach at Jamestown, guided the Blue Jays to a 35-4 record and a Class A volleyball state championship - the first in program history. Hegerle's veteran squad was anchored by all-state selections McKayla Orr (libero), Josie Hegerle (setter) and Addie Eamon (hitter).  Jamestown rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the title match against Bismarck Century. The Blue Jays won the fifth set 15-12 to secure the championship.

    High School Female Team: Bishop Ryan basketball

Bishop Ryan capped an undefeated season with a Class B state championship for the second consecutive season. The Lions finished the season 28-0 and defeated Bismarck Shiloh Christian 59-54 in the championship game. Ryan averaged 78.8 points per game while opponents only averaged 33.3 ppg. The victory in the Class B championship game marked the Lions' 57th consecutive win, tying the state record.

    High School Male Athlete: Austin Cieslak, Hazen

Cieslak was named Class A senior athlete of the year in football and was a standout on Hazen's state championship squad that went 12-0.  The all-state, first-team defensive lineman recorded 48 tackles - 10 for a loss - five sacks and five interceptions for the Bison. Cieslak is signed to play football at the University of North Dakota. Cieslak won the Class B shot put and took second in the discus. He also was a starter on Hazen's basketball and baseball teams.

    High School Male Coach: Mike Peluso, Bismarck hockey

Peluso, a former National Hockey League player and BHS graduate, helped guide Bismarck to their first-ever state championship in his sixth year as head coach. Bismarck played in the 2009 and 2010 state championship games, but lost both contests. Bismarck became just the second West Region team to ever win a state boys hockey championship. They finished the year 23-4-0, defeating Grand Forks Central 2-1 in the title game.

    High School Male Team: Cavalier football

The Tornadoes finished an 11-0 season by defeating Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn 4-6 in the 9-man state title game. Cavalier's offense was led by a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in Ryan Chrest and Brock Robbins. The Tornadoes allowed just 44 points all season and did not allow a single point during the regular season. Chrest and Paul Gibson on defense, as well as Robbins and lineman Jeff Stith on offense, were all-state picks.

     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Trout and Albert Pujols drove in two runs apiece, Jered Weaver pitched seven strong innings, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a perfect homestand with a 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
 
     Pujols had three hits and Josh Hamilton drove in a run to help the Angels win their sixth straight and move a season-best 11 games over .500 (44-33). Trout had two doubles, including a two-run drive down the left-field line in the seventh.
 
     The Angels have won 15 of 17 in Anaheim, where they have the majors' best home record. Los Angeles swept Texas and Minnesota to complete its first unbeaten homestand with at least six games since May 2004.
 
     Joe Mauer hit a three-run double with two outs in the ninth for Minnesota.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have taken UCLA guard Zach LaVine with the 13th overall pick in the first round.  The 6-foot-6 LaVine averaged 9.4 points and shot 37.5 percent from 3-point range as a freshman for the Bruins last season. He is considered one of the most athletic players in the draft, and the Timberwolves are in the market for a dynamic perimeter player to run the fast break with Ricky Rubio.  LaVine averaged under 25 minutes per game for the Bruins last season, but the Wolves believe the 19-year-old has a lot of room to grow and can develop into a playmaker on the wing.
 
     Minnesota selected Michigan forward Glenn Robinson III with the 40th overall pick in the second round.  Robinson, the son of former NBA player and Purdue star Glenn Robinson, averaged 13.1 points and 4.4 rebounds for the Wolverines as a sophomore last year.
 
     The Brooklyn Nets made a late move into the NBA draft, acquiring the rights to No. 44 pick Markel Brown from Minnesota.  The Nets sent the Timberwolves cash considerations for the guard from Oklahoma State.
 
     The Timberwolves traded the 53rd overall pick to the Houston Rockets for cash considerations.  The Timberwolves selected Italian forward Alessandro Gentile for the Rockets.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers decided to pass on Joel Embiid in the NBA draft. The Philadelphia 76ers did not.  The Cavs used the first overall pick in the draft to select forward Andrew Wiggins, who averaged a Kansas freshman-record 17.1 points last season. Wiggins became the best option for the Cavs once Embiid suffered a stress fracture in his right foot shortly before the draft.
 
     The 76ers snared Embiid with the third choice after the Milwaukee Bucks picked Duke freshman Jabari Parker. Embiid averaged 11 points, eight rebounds and 2.6 blocks as a Kansas freshman last season but missed the NCAA tournament due to a back injury.  Parker also enters the NBA after one season of college. He set Duke freshman records with 670 points, a 19.1 scoring average and 306 rebounds.
 
     Orlando used the fourth pick to grab Arizona power forward Aaron Gordon. Australian product Dante Exum went to Utah with the fifth selection. Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart is a Celtic after Boston took him with the sixth pick.
 
     The Los Angeles Lakers landed Kentucky power forward Julius Randle with the seventh choice, one pick before Michigan shooting guard Nik Stauskas was taken with the eighth selection. Charlotte snared forward Noah Vonleh of Indiana with the ninth pick, and the Sixers completed the first ten selections by taking point guard Elfrid Payton of Louisiana-Lafayette.
 
     Doug McDermott was chosen 11th by Denver before the Nuggets shipped his draft rights to Chicago for the 16th and 19th picks.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Make it seven straight wins for the Detroit Tigers after they roughed up the Rangers in Texas.  Rick Porcello tossed his first career shutout and Miguel Cabrera had four hits as the Tigers blanked the Rangers 6-0. Porcello held Texas to three singles and benefitted from three double plays as he improved to 10-4.
 
     Austin Jackson hit a two-run single for the Tigers, who lead the AL Central by 4 1/2 games over Kansas City. Detroit was 1 1/2 games behind the Royals just before their winning streak began.
 
     The Los Angeles Angels are within 3 1/2 games of the AL West lead after completing a 6-0 homestand.  Mike Trout and Albert Pujols drove in two runs apiece to lead the Angels' 6-4 triumph against Minnesota. Pujols also scored twice and had three of the Angels' 14 hits.
 
     Also in the majors:
 
     - Matt Dominguez was in an 0-for-23 slump before belting a three-run homer that helped the Astros down the Braves 6-1 and avoid a three-game sweep. Rookie George Springer also homered to back Jarred Cosart, who's 8-5 after allowing six hits in seven innings for his fourth straight win.
 
     - The Cubs squandered a 3-0 lead before Justin Ruggiano's two-run double broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh inning of a 5-3 win over Washington in Chicago. Starlin Castro poked a two-run single in the Cubs' three-run fourth.
 
     - J.A. Happ was terrific in Toronto's 7-0 shutout of the Chicago White Sox, fanning eight while allowing four hits over 7 2/3 innings. Jose Reyes was 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Adam Lind chipped in three hits and three ribbies.
 
     - Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett hit two-run homers, and Rickie Weeks went 3-for-4 with a solo shot in Milwaukee's 7-4 downing of Colorado. Wily Peralta struck out seven over six innings to pick up his ninth win and help the Brewers stretch their lead in the NL Central to 5 1/2 games over St. Louis.
 
     - Adam Wainwright went the distance on a five-hitter but gave up Justin Turner's RBI single in the eighth inning of the Dodgers' 1-0 win over St. Louis in Los Angeles. Josh Beckett settled for a no-decision after scattering four hits in seven innings.
 
     - Mike Leake struck out 12 and gave up just one run and four hits in eight innings to pitch Cincinnati past San Francisco 3-1, keeping the Giants' lead in the NL West at two games over the Dodgers. Brandon Phillips hit a solo homer and Jay Bruce was 3-for-4 with two runs scored.
 
     - Rookie Gregory Polanco hit a three-run homer and had four RBIs as Pittsburgh downed the New York Mets 5-2. Vance Worley is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA after limiting the Mets to a run and seven hits in seven innings.
 
     - Philadelphia beat Miami 5-3 on Chase Utley's two-run homer in the bottom of the 14th. Utley had three hits and three RBIs for the Phillies, who tied the game on first baseman Jeff Baker's error in the seventh.
