Berkeley Springs past Hancock boys By BILL STERNER / Staff Correspondent BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - His own gym had turned into a sea of madness, but Berkeley Springs guard Mark Rockwell remained calm Thursday night. The placid senior made two free throws with four seconds to play, giving the Indians a 68-66 victory over Hancock that certainly looked like a loss. "I wasn't going to worry about all the ones I have missed," said Rockwell, a shaky 54 percent free-throw shooter.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - It was Berkeley Springs football coach Angelo Luvara at his most enigmatic. Defiant. Patient. Analytical. Most of all, combative throughout most of the first half as he cajoled, praised and finally smiled at his much beleaguered defensive unit that had been mostly offensive in their play the last three outings. But not tonight. Berkeley Springs (2-2) righted the ship, giving up only one big play to Petersburg while marquee quarterback Tony Belt threw for 157 first-half yards, allowing the Indians to race away from the Vikings 45-6 Friday evening.

By MARK KELLER Staff Writer MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The rule in Dennis Etherington's dugout is that the equipment isn't packed until the final out is made. It's a good thing the Martinsburg coach enforces that rule, because the Bulldogs could have easily packed it in early Tuesday. Instead, No. 5 Martinsburg hung around and scored six runs in the fourth inning to tie the game, then scored the winning run on an error in the bottom of the sixth to beat Berkeley Springs, 8-7, at P.O. Faulkner Park.

Call Jeremy Unger a modern-day picker. Most days the 20-year-old Berkeley Springs, W.Va., man can be found scouring flea markets, yard sales or diving into a Dumpster to find one man's trash and turn into another man's treasure. But Unger doesn't shy away from using eBay as another source to make some money. "I'll buy something for $2 and sell it all-day for $20," he said. Because the bottom line is to make profit. "It doesn't even have to be antique, just anything I know I can make money on," he said.
