WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Nicole Burd says the best things about her cheerleading team are the friendships and camaraderie. "We're all so close, it's like a big family," said Nicole, 13. She and the other girls identified teamwork as the reason why they won a national championship at the end of March, although that win seems to have been kept in perspective. "It's not about winning. It's about having fun," said Nicole, who lives in Waynesboro. Eighteen girls ages 14 and younger from Waynesboro's Rainbow Gymnastics represented the junior team of Rainbow All Starz at the Cheer and Dance Extreme "National Championships by the Sea" in Virginia Beach, Va., on March 29 and 30. "This is our fourth national title, our first junior national title," said Barb Hafer, cheerleading coordinator and coach of the senior team.

HAGERSTOWN - From the front row of the bleachers, 4-year-old Mitchell Unger's eyes went wide. "Woooow," he said. "Now that's what I call a ladder. " The object of his fascination was a pair of 18-foot ladders being hoisted into a vertical position by a male gymnast, who then hoisted himself between them and began to climb. The ladder act was a crowd favorite Wednesday night at a show by the University of Maryland's Gymkana troupe, which traveled from College Park to perform at the Hagerstown Community College Athletic, Recreation and Community Center.

WILLIAMSPORT Mary Meroney was determined not to let her intravenous treatment for cystic fibrosis keep her from showing up for gymnastics practice a couple of months ago at the 4 Star Athletic Complex. "She wanted to participate anyway," said her coach, Deanna Kline, who was so inspired by the 16-year-old's courage that she began organizing a benefit performance that drew a large and enthusiastic crowd Saturday night. The money collected from the performance was donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which Kline said spends 91 percent of its funds on research to find a cure for the inherited disease, which attacks the lungs and other organs of the body.
