CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- New regulations from the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) are changing how student-athletes get physicals. Prior to this school year, students needed to get a physical or recertification before each sports season, Chambersburg athletic director Don Folmar said. Now, they'll have to get one "comprehensive" exam each year, he said. "Starting June 1, they went statewide saying the comprehensive physical is the only physical the PIAA will accept," Folmar told the Chambersburg Area School Board on Wednesday.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- A financial crunch has left the Waynesboro Area School District's gymnastics team teetering as if it's on a balance beam. At least one school board member says the gymnastics program costs too much for too few participants, potentially placing it on the chopping block for the 2009-10 budget. That $50 million budget is scheduled to be adopted in its final form next Tuesday. Pat Heefner said she appreciates the success of the gymnastics team, but she said the $3,095 per-pupil cost jumps out at her from budget documents.

andrewm@herald-mail.com If the wrestling season were one big single-elimination tournament, Conrad Myers would be the champion. The Greencastle-Antrim sophomore is the last of the Tri-State's unbeatens. Myers, a 152-pounder, is 25-0. Staying perfect from this point on, however, is the tricky part. Myers isn't the champion of anything yet. But that could change soon. The Blue Devils begin PIAA Class AA postseason action next weekend at the District 3 Section IV tournament.

The eighth-seeded Blue Devils had their fans on the edge of their seats like many times this season, but ultimately dropped their first-round game 54-50 to the Bobcats.
