MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Like any good athlete can do, Kevin Armbruster took a disappointing defeat and turned it into motivation. By his own admission, the Martinsburg senior "messed up" in the West Virginia Region II Tennis Tournament. He finished fourth - below his expectations, but still good enough to make the state tournament. Armbruster took advantage of the opportunity, knocking off a region winner in the first round at states and advancing all the way to the semifinals before bowing out. His run helped earn him The Herald-Mail All-Area Boys Tennis Player of the Year honor.

I have a habit of ranking things. From football teams and cross country runners to concerts and restaurants, there's a top-10 list somewhere in the back of my head. Not long before I left my sportswriting job at The Record Herald in Waynesboro a few years ago, I wrote a column ranking my top-three sports memories while on the local beat. Coming in at No. 2 was the complete-game one-hitter hurled by Waynesboro junior Ryan Devlin against Montoursville in the 2000 PIAA state quarterfinals, as the Indians scratched out a 1-0 victory.

It's safe to assume the members of Greencastle-Antrim's boys basketball team have no problems wearing women's attire. At least not on their feet - Cinderella's slipper is a nice fit for the Blue Devils. It's been exactly 50 years since Greencastle last played in the PIAA state tournament - so long ago, teams qualified by winning their conferences instead of advancing through district play back then, according to Blue Devils coach Garon Gembe. A magical run to the Mid-Penn Capital regular-season title and the District 3-AAA championship game has Greencastle (22-6)

By MARK KELLER Staff Writer SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - "Play every game like its a championship game. " Chambersburg boys' basketball coach Mark Cubit used those words Saturday to rouse his team at halftime of its first-round game in the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament against North Penn.

andrewm@herald-mail.com HERSHEY, Pa. - A hit here or a fielding play there by Pennsbury, and Chambersburg could have been in serious trouble during the PIAA Class AAA state softball quarterfinals Thursday. Instead, the Falcons were the ones who had problems. And the Trojans were more than happy to expose them. Pennsbury stranded 11 base-runners, including eight in scoring position, and committed five errors, leading to two unearned runs for the Trojans, who capitalized for a 2-1 victory.
