SMITHSBURG - Smithsburg senior David Wilson knew all the runners at the Don Stoner Invitational on Saturday. Now, he has beaten them all. Wilson smoked the field in 16:53 - more than a half-minute better than second-place finisher Stephen Keith of Walkersville - to become the third straight Smithsburg champion of the 19th annual event. "I had a lot of confidence running on my own course," Wilson said. "Plus, there was no one that I didn't know was coming. " Wilson helped Smithsburg to the small schools title after he and the Leopards got a pre-race pep talk from Corey Centofonti, who graduated last spring after winning the event in 2006 and 2007.

Area Christian schools have formed a coalition to work together in multiple areas. Grace Academy hosted the coalition's kickoff meeting last summer. According to Jack Appleby of Grace Academy, the coalition's goal is to find ways for Christian schools to share resources and ideas. This collaborative effort includes schools within a 35-mile radius, as far north as Chambersburg Pa., south to Martinsburg, W.Va., and east to Frederick, Md. Most, but not all, of the schools are in the Mid-Atlantic Christian Association.

tammyb@herald-mail.com ANNAPOLIS - Gov. Robert Ehrlich announced plans last week to include $155 million for school construction in his capital budget this year, but school officials on Tuesday told a Senate committee that's not nearly enough. David Lever, executive director of the state's Public School Construction Program, told the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee that Maryland school districts had submitted $595 million in construction requests for fiscal 2006, which begins July 1. That's a 50 percent increase from last year, and those requests came from every jurisdiction in the state.

Athletic Director Bill Sterner said Monday that the six-lane track is torn up and cracked down to its base. He estimated it will cost more than $100,000 for the new track. "It's deteriorated to the point where we cannot have any meets," Hancock Principal Warren Barrett said Monday.

keller@herald-mail.com Jay Kirby had heard the rumors in the past and ignored them. Last week, he went out on his own terms. The Jefferson High football coach tendered his resignation last Friday, ending his sometimes rocky 18-year tenure on the Cougars' sideline. Kirby compiled a 68-113-1 record as head coach - only the third coach in the 31-year history of the school. After a 1-9 season his first year, the Cougars improved to 5-5 the next season before earning their first state playoff berth in 1987.

Todd Ruppenthal already wears a number of hats at Hancock Middle-Senior High School. On Wednesday, he added one more - that of head football coach. Ruppenthal, a 1981 Hancock graduate and longtime assistant coach, was named to succeed Dave Mahaffey, who resigned at the end of the 2012 season. “It's an exciting opportunity for me,” Ruppenthal said. “I played here, my son played here, I've been an assistant here for 17 years, so this program means a lot to me. I'm really looking forward to it.” Ruppenthal, 49, played for the Panthers when athletic director Bill Sterner was an assistant coach and served as an assistant during Sterner's tenure as head coach.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- In a nation where students are math- and science-challenged, where will the minds be developed to solve the energy crisis, combat global warming and meet other challenges facing the planet? Apparently, in the Fannett-Metal School District. Students from the pint-sized district have won the senior division for five years running going into last weekend's Franklin Science and Technology Fair. Fannett-Metal has about 600 students from kindergarten through high school, but more than 100 of them were at the Franklin Science and Technology Fair over the weekend at Chambersburg Area Middle School.
