tarar@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. -Lights shined on a quiet, empty Kaley Field at Greencastle-Antrim High School just before 7 p.m. Saturday. The other side of the fence surrounding the football field was a different story. Parents - many dressed in the color of their children's marching band uniforms - gathered in groups, chatting about various topics. Students, some of whom were in the band, munched on food and hung out in small circles. Several band members said they weren't nervous about the U.S. Scholastic Band Association's Autumn Festival that they'd be participating in shortly.

Waynesboro's Eric Mowen and Mike Rouzer were the only wrestling coaches wearing suits and ties Saturday at the 22nd annual Hub Cup at North Hagerstown. The Indians clearly meant business at the tournament. Waynesboro, competing in the Hub Cup for the first time, dominated the 18-team field with 233 1/2 points - 74 more than runner-up Williamsport.

North Hagerstown's Jake Turner has a history at the Hub Cup. Now the 152-pound senior is ready to leave his legacy. Turner is one of six Hubs still alive in the 22nd annual invitational wrestling tournament, and he's already planned his agenda for the final rounds today. "I've been wrestling since I was 7 years old and I've always been coming to North High matches and the Hub Cup," said Turner, who scored two first-period pins in early action Friday night. "I even used to run the spotlights for the championship matches, so it would be special to be able to have them on me this year.

By JENNYLYNN BROWN Staff Writer WILLIAMSPORT - This weekend's sweltering weather didn't overwhelm Civil War re-enactors camping in wool uniforms at the Cushwa Basin near the visitor center at the C&O Canal National Historical Park. It brought them closer to the true soldier experience, said Barbara Benedict of Frederick, 35, one of three privates participating in the 6th Maryland Volunteer Infantry Regiment encampment in the parking lot at 205 W. Potomac St. "The 6th Maryland were camped in this vicinity, quite possibly on this very spot from September to December 1862, We were responsible for protecting the aqueduct, the Potomac River and keeping the canal open," said her husband, Ron Benedict, 43. The infantry guarded the Potomac River to prevent Confederates from destroying dams, which would have flooded the C&O canal.

North Hagerstown juniors Delon Agee and Jim Eichelberger both agree: When the lights go dim in their gym this Saturday evening, the center mat is where they want to be. "You come out in the spotlight," Eichelberger said. "Everyone's watching you, and you just have to get it done. " Neither Eichelberger nor any of his teammates, however, know this from experience. None of this year's Hubs has ever wrestled in the championship finals of the Hub Cup - Washington County's largest and most prestigious annual tournament.

andrewm@herald-mail.com Derick Boerstler has been lifting weights, while Terrail Blair has been shedding weight. The South Hagerstown wrestlers are an unlikely duo. Not many would have guessed they'd be where they are today - the semifinals of North Hagerstown's 18th annual Hub Cup, with a pair of 15-0 records to go with their No. 1 seeds. If someone would have told them this before the season, "I wouldn't have believed them," Boerstler said. "Me either," Blair said.
