Football is always a numbers game at Hancock Middle-Senior High School. The good news for the Panthers is the numbers are up in the first year under coach Todd Ruppenthal. “We're only carrying 19 on the varsity roster this year, but we were able to field a junior varsity team for the first time in more than five years and we have 17 players on that roster,” said Ruppenthal. “We have 79 boys in the school and nearly 40 are playing football. That's good for us.” However, only 19 players on the varsity roster leads to ironman football in many cases for the Panthers, and sometimes a lack of depth.

Several Washington County Board of Education members said Wednesday that a letter they received from Hagerstown's mayor and City Council regarding the city's pitch to have the school board's offices move downtown, didn't offer enough detail. “There's several things missing from the letter and things I thought I had made clear yesterday, and I thought my colleagues had as well, is that we need some real numbers,” school board member Donna Brightman said Wednesday. Hagerstown Mayor David S. Gysberts sat in on most of a Tuesday school board work session in which the board heard about an estimated $6.6 million in renovations needed for the former Allegheny Energy building in order for it to be suitable for school system offices.
