WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Spirits were high at Rip Engle Stadium on Friday night. Waynesboro was coming off its first victory of the season and it was Homecoming for the Indians faithful. The night became even more special after 48 minutes of football as the Indians rocked Scotland 34-6 in the Mid-Penn Capital. It's just the third time in 12 years Waynesboro has won back-to-back games. The Indians won the first two games of the 1998 and 2000 seasons. "I didn't know exactly how long it had been, but I knew it was a while," said Waynesboro coach Darwin Seiler.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - For a tactic that James Buchanan coach Becky Miller doesn't like to employ, the zone defense turned out to be the spark that lit the fuse for the Rockets on Friday night. Scotland scorched JB on cuts through the lane for easy layups in an 18-point first quarter, which led Miller to resort to the zone - a defense she admitted she is not a proponent for. While Miller isn't a fan of using the zone, it proved to be a valuable strategy as the Rockets held the Kaydettes to just 14 points over the final three quarters to notch a 59-32 Mid-Penn Capital victory.

A new chapter in education in Franklin County, Pa., began Monday when Winebrenner Theological Seminary officially opened its doors at the home of the former Scotland School for Veterans Children. The school begins seminary classes this fall. “The way we are going to measure our success is not by the number of graduates, not by the money (the school) generates, but is the world a better place,” said David Draper, president of Winebrenner Theological Seminary. The Ohio-based seminary is affiliated with the Church of God denomination, but recruits students from other backgrounds.

Boxing up the last remains of the Scotland School for Veterans Children was a sad day for the president of the school's alumni association. "It makes me feel about the same as the day we were told that the school was closing - devastated," James Lowe said. For Lowe, Wednesday's auction at the school seemed more like a family estate sale rather than a state property auction conducted by the Department of General Services. "We were educated here, but this was our home. When other children got off the school bus; and went home to their parents, this was our home.
