“I've been reading about the University of Maryland cutting out the lesser-known sports programs, just to save money. Well, if I were the parents of those students that were participating in these lesser-known sports, I would say, hey, what do we need all these cheerleaders for, for the basketball team and the football team, and the big moneymaking sports events? I always thought cheerleaders were a waste of time and money. ... Cut that money out.” - Hagerstown “This call is pertaining to the University of Maryland football team.

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.

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.

School Stadium was packed on Friday night to see Hagerstown's two public high schools - North and South - duke it out in their annual football showdown. The bleachers on opposite sides of the field were filled with red-clad North fans and green-clad South fans. Some took extra steps to show their spirit, dying their hair the appropriate team color. The bands entertained, students cheered, burgers sizzled on the grill. Bruce Carter, the father of a South High band member, worked one of the french fry fryers.

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.

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.

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.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - "We're homeless. " Doug Andree, president of the Waynesboro Stallions Football Association, walked into a meeting Wednesday prepared to sacrifice holding the team's four annual home games at Pine Hill Regional Recreation Area as a way to appease neighbors. By the time Andree left, the Washington Township Supervisors had said he only might be permitted to hold two practices there a week during the three-month fall season. "We're homeless without a place to play," Andree said.

I love it when freckled, grass-stained kids from two tough football programs with long-standing grudges get down in the dirt and the mud and settle the score where it was meant to be settled — in a courtroom. Even so, you have to feel for the Martinsburg Bulldogs, who were sitting around this week waiting to find out who they should have played last week. Martinsburg we knew; the Bulldogs were in the state championship game based on on-field accomplishments. But their opponent had to be decided not on the field, but by the West Virginia Supreme Court, at least indirectly.
