Here's a feature on Mead lineman James Volz (pictured above), who has overcome a health issue to succeed in athletics. In the classroom he's off-the-charts smart. This is the centerpiece feature of our Thursday Prep Page.

HERE are other links to Prep Page stories and miscellaneous items:

BRIEFLY: Lewis and Clark girls basketball standout Devyn Galland is headed to the University of Oregon.
