Trojans no match for Waynesboro By AL DITZEL / Staff Writer CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Not that Waynesboro wrestling coach Dan Ireland did not respect Chambersburg, but he had some other things in mind when the two teams wrestled Saturday.

Reilley finally got to see what life was like at the top of the podium Saturday after earning an 8-5 decision over Rising Sun's Nick Dawson in the 130-pound weight class.
