WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Waynesboro junior Jamison Walck stands 5-foot-10 with the shape of an offensive lineman. The Indians forward showed Friday night he has the touch of a jump shooter. Walck hit all three of his attempts from beyond 16 feet and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line to lead Waynesboro to a 59-47 win against Camp Hill.
