Clement Tamasang and Brandon Carter both can bench press more than 400 pounds, but neither is quite sure how well they will do pulling a 10,500-pound welding truck Saturday. The truck pull is among eight events in the Martinsburg Gold's Gym Strongman Competition, which Tamasang, 21, and Carter, 33, say they entered for the fun of it. “I'm just going to go and show up,” said Tamasang, who plays defensive end on Shepherd University's football team. The competition at the gym at 167 Eagle School Road starts at 9 a.m. As of Tuesday, 24 men were registered to compete in two weight divisions for the strongman title, cash prizes, gift certificates and nutritional supplements, according to organizer Ian Fritz, a member of the Gold's Gym staff.

We can use it to help boost our scores.” The South Hagerstown High School band was one of 15 to compete in the Tournament of Bands Chapter V Championships.

Spring Mills High School is set to be dedicated Aug. 7, but Berkeley County's fourth public high school is expected to be finished well before then, Berkeley County Schools Superintendent Manny P. Arvon said Tuesday while giving a tour of the school. Hallway clocks displayed the correct time during the tour, basketball backboards were installed in the main gymnasium and cafeteria equipment in the kitchen appeared practically ready for food service. The cafeteria and every other room visited Tuesday had yet to be furnished, but Arvon said all of the remaining work is expected to be finished by June 1, if not sooner.

Randy Edsall's first season as Maryland football coach produced two wins. It didn't get much better last year, when the Terrapins went through four quarterbacks and a six-game skid that resulted in a 4-8 record. Now, as Edsall prepares for his third stab at a winning season, he's got every reason to believe that a fresh start will result in a change of fortune. His optimism comes from the fashion in which his athletes have reacted to his team-first philosophy. “Everybody is holding each other accountable.

The first weekend of this October, two planes will pass each other. One, filled with football players from the Northeast will be traveling some 1,300 miles to play a team in Texas. The other, filled with Texas football players, will be traveling even farther to play a football team (Rutgers) from New Jersey. They must do so because Southern Methodist University will be a new member of the Big East Conference, while former Big East member West Virginia University is entering its second year in the Southwest's Big 12 Conference.

A proposed bill that would allow a county board of education in Maryland to begin its fall practice for high school sports teams up to two weeks earlier than the date set by the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association received unanimous support at a Washington County delegation meeting Wednesday. Representatives of the Washington County Board of Education asked for the bill because they believe that high schools in neighboring Pennsylvania and West Virginia have an advantage because fall season sports practice starts earlier in those states.

Donald “Don” Burley is remembered by his family as a man who touched the lives of many through his quiet, humble ways. His community involvement and volunteer efforts were done to help others, not for recognition or fanfare. Don was the second of H. Marsh and Alice Burley's four children. He grew up in Worthington, W.Va., with loving parents and not realizing they were poor. “He allowed that level of poverty to change him in a good way,” said daughter Julie White of Wichita, Kan. “He grew up in a multicultural community where he loved everyone.” In high school, Don played football, basketball and baseball and was in the marching band, joining the band for the halftime show in his football uniform with his trumpet.
