It hurts only when she swims. But Interboro High graduate Tina Horn continues to swim despite chronic neck problems caused by an automobile accident nearly two years ago. "I committed to swimming four years in college," said Horn, a senior at West Chester University. "It's what I've done all my life. I don't know what I would do with all of my free time if I didn't swim. " Horn has missed a number of practices this season because of neck problems. Her performances weren't up to par early in the season, but the West Chester senior showed that she is getting things together by winning the 200-, 500- and 1,000-yard freestyle events in a 126-105 victory over Shippensburg on Tuesday.

Five cars crashed on the westbound Schuylkill Expressway, slowing Tuesday morning traffic for about an hour. One woman was taken to the hospital for neck pain, a PennDot patrolman said. Gretchen Wolf said it started as a typical slowdown on the expressway, with traffic coming to a stop. "I was able to stop but I guess the car behind me wasn't," she said. Wolf, who was driving a black Volkswagon GTI, said the rain was probably to blame. "The roads are really slippery, she probably slid more than hit," Wolf said of the Chevy driver who hit her. Three cars behind them were also unable to stop.
