The Blue Devils (2-1, 1-1) took the game to the Indians defense early, getting five breakaway opportunities in the first half and finishing on two of them. Junior midfielder Jacob Kline broke loose in the 15th minute to score on a 22-yard one-timer to the left corner of the net. Eleven minutes later, Kline fed a pinpoint cross to a streaking Ian Rohrbaugh, who finished with a little poke to the right corner.

Greencastle-Antrim scored less than three minutes into Friday night's game and pounded rival Waynesboro 49-14 at Kaley Field. The Blue Devils (4-5, 3-3 Mid-Penn Colonial) rolled up 550 yards in total offense, utilizing seven different rushers and the arm of quarterback Austin Scott. On the fifth play of the game in Greencastle's opening possession, Scott rolled to his left and hit Josh Young about 10 yards from the line of scrimmage. Young did the rest of the work to complete a 63-yard touchdown play at the 9:43 mark.

For one of the few times in his 25 years at Greencastle-Antrim, Chuck Tinninis wished he was coaching on the college level. Then, the Blue Devils would be playing 15-minute quarters instead of 12. It might have been all Greencastle needed to pull off a huge comeback. The Blue Devils came alive in the final 11:30 of the game on Friday to rally, but fell short in a 35-28 loss to West Perry in a Mid-Penn Colonial matchup. “The key to this game for us is that the kids came back and played hard,” Tinninis said.

The most critical moments of Greencastle-Antrim's volleyball match on Tuesday were decided in a Facebook second. The Blue Devils decided to “like” each other again. After taking a dominant 2-0 lead, Greencastle stumbled for the next 1 1/2 sets before righting itself to collect a 25-16, 25-16, 19-25, 25-16 Mid-Penn Capital win over Waynesboro. Devils coach Katie Lutz took a timeout at 15-14 in the decisive fourth set and told the Blue Devils to become social again. “I told them, 'You need to play as a team.

Gettysburg's Camden Boehner scored 21 points and Madalyn Weikert added 15 as the Warriors took advantage of ice-cold shooting by Greencastle-Antrim in the second quarter on the way to a 54-38 victory over the Blue Devils on Monday night. Coming off of a 54-25 victory against Waynesboro a week ago, the Blue Devils (2-2) continued its solid play as they kept it close with the Warriors early on. Sophomore Katie Gelsinger made 2 of 4 shots, and freshman Chloe Hoover and sophomore Jane Herman each added a 3-pointer one as the Blue Devils held a 10-9 lead at the end of the first frame.

After two frustrating losses at the hands of Gettysburg and Boiling Springs in the past week, the Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils girls team finally jelled together, rebounding against Shippensburg for a 59-44 Mid-Penn Colonial victory behind Chloe Hoover's 27 points and 12 rebounds. Hoover, coming off of a disappointing four-point performance in a 35-32 loss against Boiling Springs on Wednesday, erupted against an overmatched Greyhounds squad. The junior forward capitalized on excellent interior passes and great point play from freshman Hannah Crist to cement herself as the game's top player.

The Greencastle-Antrim basketball season took a turn for the surreal on Thursday. The Blue Devils traveled an hour away to have an out-of-body experience. It wasn't the thrills and chills that usually come with the rides on a trip to Hershey, Pa. The pounding hearts and lumps in the throats were for a different reason. The Blue Devils stood in a row across the foul line at the Giant Center and just stared. They eyes were fixed on the activity just 60 feet in front of them - at the celebration of Susquehanna Township after it defeated Greencastle 56-46 for the Pennsylvania District 3 Class AAA championship - but the gaze was a million miles away.

andrewm@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A day away from the Mid-Penn Colonial Division was like a day at the spa for the Chambersburg wrestling team. While about half of the Trojans were able to relax off the mat Saturday afternoon, the other half got to work their kinks out on it against Greencastle-Antrim. Chambersburg won six of the eight contested bouts and all six of those forfeited for a 63-9 nondivision victory over the Blue Devils (11-10). The No. 3 Trojans (6-7)

Chuck Tinninis was a little concerned how his club would react after its meltdown in the season-opener at Chambersburg last week. But the Greencastle-Antrim football coach was all smiles after the Blue Devils throttled Boiling Springs on Friday night. “We didn't make any adjustments,” said Tinninis. “I just told them to suck it up, and they did.” Greencastle's defense was a big reason for the smiles, holding the Bubblers to just 79 yards of total offense, including minus-seven yards in the second half.

It's time. This is what it's all about for guys like Matt Montedoro, Ashtin Byers, Jackson Hall and Kristian Sheeley to name a few. There are 13 more like them on the Greencastle-Antrim football team. It's what playing football is all about. “When a program gets to a certain point, you get between 15-20 kids from each class every season,” said Greencastle coach Chuck Tinninis. “Most of them only get one shot - and it comes in their senior year. The moment of truth is here.” And what a shot it could be. The Blue Devils have 17 seniors who can basically control their own destiny.

After watching a 6-1 lead dwindle to a one-run advantage in the fifth inning, Greencastle-Antrim baseball coach Eric Shaner gave his team an ultimatum: Hang your heads, or answer the bell. The Blue Devils heeded their coach's word as they took advantage of four walks in the inning and poured on nine runs to defeat Gettysburg by the 10-run rule, 15 - 5, on Wednesday in the Mid-Penn Colonial. “We told them right before the bottom half that we go can one of two ways,” Shaner said.

One game after being held hitless by Waynesboro's Dylan Bryan, Greencastle-Antrim rebounded in spectacular fashion, collecting 12 runs on eight hits en route to a decisive 12 - 1 victory over James Buchanan on Tuesday afternoon. “There's a certain style of pitcher that we have been struggling against,” Greencastle head coach Eric Shaner said. “We wanted to look for their pitch early in the count and not get cheated late in the count.” That mindset worked for Shaner and the Blue Devils as Greencastle worked six walks against the Rockets' pitching staff throughout the game, including four from starting pitcher Sloane Bendell.

“Throwing a no-hitter against Greencastle is something every pitcher from Waynesboro probably dreams of.” Waynesboro's Dylan Bryan spoke from experience as he stood against the fence, still drenched from the Gatorade bath that his teammates had given him following his no-hit, 10-strikeout performance in the Indians' 6-0 win over Greencastle on Thursday. “Feels good,” Bryan said as the beads of liquid dropped from his hat and onto the field.  “I was pitching on varsity since I was a freshman and it was the first no-hitter I've ever thrown.” For Bryan, it will be a moment to cherish in his high school career, but for the Blue Devils, it was a somber end to an agonizing week.

Elizabeth Ward has shown extreme poise in her freshman year inside the circle for Greencastle. That didn't change on Wednesday in a seven-inning performance, while allowing one run on six hits in a 5-1 win over James Buchanan. The Blue Devils made the outing stand up with a five-run fifth inning. Riding high after a recent 3 - 2 victory over Shippensburg, James Buchanan - led by Hannah Bingaman and Shania Fogelsonger - had rocketed to a 5 - 0 start in the Mid-Penn Colonial. But the Rockets didn't faze the freshman.

Elizabeth Ward was stellar again inside the circle for Greencastle-Antrim, firing a one-hit shutout as the Blue Devils blanked Gettysburg 13-0 in a Mid-Penn Colonial softball game. Ward, getting more starts in place of the injured Kelsey Brewbaker, struck out six and walked three. She has been a pivotal component in the Blue Devils' early-season success. “She's really stepped up for us with Kelsey down,” Greencastle head coach Mark DeCarli said. “She's a huge part of the team now and hopefully she keeps improving and keeps getting stronger.” As Ward dominated inside the circle, Greencastle's bats were still sizzling from Monday's 14-0 romp over Camp Hill.
