SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) _ An eastern Nebraska high school baseball coach has resigned and his team forfeited the championship game of the American Legion state tournament after some of his players were involved in alcohol-fueled vandalism.
     Three players from Waverly High were arrested and three were ticketed on suspicion of vandalism early Wednesday near the hotel where the team was staying in Scottsbluff.
     Waverly coach Michael Goodrich forfeited the Class B championship game that was to be played Wednesday night, giving the title to Hickman-Norris.
     Goodrich also resigned. He said that as head coach, he's responsible for his team's actions.
     Police are investigating multiple incidents of vandalism in the area since Sunday. One resident told police she watched as a man struck her mail box with a baseball bat.
