Angela Pittinger has been practicing her routine since last month, but dealing with strained vocal chords and blistered feet would be worth the sacrifice if her school walked away with a trophy at this weekend's Martinsburg High School Concert and Show Choir Festival. Pittinger, the dance captain at Washington High School in Charles Town, W.Va., said the hours of work are worth it. “I'd love to take a trophy back to school. But no matter if we win or lose, at the end of the day, everybody loves show choir,” the 18-year-old senior said as she practiced some last-minute dance moves.

HAGERSTOWN -- The group dashed onto the stage at Hagerstown Community College's Kepler Theater Sunday afternoon, offering their rendition of the song "YMCA" by the Village People. Wearing props like an Indian headdress, a sailor's hat and a hard hat, the performers sang an energetic version of the 1978 song, jutting their hips, yelling to people in the crowd and spelling out YMCA with their arms. Then the group bounded off the stage and danced their way up the aisles as people in the audience laughed.

SMITHSBURG - Kathy Boyd didn't know Smithsburg Police Officer Christopher Shane Nicholson personally, but her 15-year-old son Jeremy did from after-school contact at Smithsburg High School. On Friday night, the school's show choir - including Jeremy Boyd - put on a special benefit concert in memory of Nicholson, who was shot and killed in the line of duty Dec. 19. Money collected in a basket Friday was earmarked for a scholarship fund in Nicholson's name at Williamsport High School, as well as a college fund for the children of Alison Munson, who also was slain Dec. 19 in Halfway, allegedly by a former boyfriend who later shot Nicholson near Smithsburg.

With 381 graduates, the Martinsburg High School Class of 2012 is the largest yet, interim Principal Trent Sherman told a capacity crowd Friday night at the school's 134h commencement exercises. The graduating class - which received about $2.5 million in scholarships and can claim a stake in state titles won in show choir, basketball, baseball and back-to-back crowns in football - may hold the graduate record for years to come, Sherman said. Next year's graduating class is smaller, and a fourth high school is also set to open then, he said.
