December 20, 2007

Chris and Mark Brockway - 1984 graduates of North Hagerstown High School - were inducted recently into the Shippensburg University Sports Hall of Fame.

They were joined in the Class of 2007 by William Beible, H. Douglas Bushong, Margaret "Peg" Mount, Dana Boyer Neast and Tracy Spencer Wetherbee.

The twin brothers accounted for 22 All-American swimming honors at Shippensburg, three Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championships, two school records and one national title.

Chris, who resides in York, Pa., was one of the top performers in the history of the Shippensburg men's team.

He was a 12-time All-American from 1984 to 1988, winning three PSAC championships and a national title in the 200-yard butterfly in 1988.


He still holds the school record in the 200 individual medley and is also ranked in the top three in four other events.

Chris also was a conference place-winner in the 100 butterfly, 400 IM, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke.

He has worked in pharmaceutical sales for 16 years.

Mark, a resident of New Hope, Pa., was a 10-time All-American and still holds the school record for the 500 freestyle.

In addition to his All-American honors, Mark was a 12-time conference place-winner - highlighted by his back-to-back runner-up finishes in the 200 freestyle in 1985 and 1986.

Mark has worked for a pharmaceutical company as a regional sales director for the past 15 years.
