By MARK KELLER Staff Correspondent The standing room only crowd at St. Maria Goretti for opening night of the 14th Annual Mid-Atlantic Invitational Tournament could not have asked for more excitement. Both of Friday's opening-round games were decided in the final seconds, as the four teams pushed aside early-season jitters and treated the fans to a tremendous show. Sophomore Anthony Sowers drained a 15-foot jumper with five seconds remaining to lead Goretti to a 64-62 victory over Providence Day School of Charlotte, N.C., in the second game of the double bill.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- The cast of Greencastle-Antrim High School's upcoming school play said "Hello, Dolly!" could be the most fun they have had on stage. And knowing the fun will end soon has left a bittersweet feeling among the cast. The students have been together almost daily since January rehearsing for opening night April 3. With all the interaction on stage and off, being in "Hello Dolly!" has made the students into a family, senior Malorie Olivier said. "Senior or freshman, lead role or chorus, we are one big family," she said.

Leave it to kids to settle a dispute among adults. It was one weekend in April, yes, but it might have been the most meaningful weekend in Hagerstown since 1996, when Otis Rush, John Hammond and company helped put Hagerstown on the musical map by ushering in Western Maryland Blues Fest. Probably a lot of people, and by a lot of people I mean me, thought the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts was overreaching by choosing to perform "Phantom of the Opera," a complex musical that's taken the place of "Cats" as the longest-running Broadway production.

HAGERSTOWN -- The night was cold and drizzly and the rural landscape around Tri-State Fellowship was dark, but at the back of the Cearfoss Pike church building Friday night, soft light and rock music poured from the windows of an upstairs room. That room was what church members call "the Attic," and inside, in a space filled with mismatched couches, game tables and a large plywood cross, a new coffeehouse-style ministry was celebrating its opening night. The event, called "Third Fridays at the Attic," was organized by members of Oasis, a young adult Bible study group at Tri-State Fellowship, co-organizer Luke Greffen said.
