Springfield High running back Marty Brown remained upbeat when Division I football recruiters did not beat down his door after a stellar high school career. The senior just wanted to play. Anywhere. Brown will play at Division II Shippensburg, and that is just fine for a player who rushed for more than 4,000 yards for the Cougars. "I'm happy with my decision," the 5-foot-10, 210-pound Brown said. "I know where I stand. I know what's best for me. " Brown, who has accepted a football scholarship/financial aid package from Shippensburg, stood taller in Central League football games than he did in the eyes of Division I recruiters.

Karen Kane-Grimes, a senior on the Slippery Rock women's soccer team, gave a few good-natured shoves to her Shippensburg opponent each time down the field when the teams met last month. Those actions didn't last long. "I had to stop because the ref kept looking at me," Kane-Grimes recalled, laughing. What the official didn't realize was that Kane-Grimes was just picking on her little sister, Sara. "It was just a few nudges here and there," Sara Kane-Grimes said. "I was a little nervous about the whole game.

Textile, breaking open a close game with a late scoring burst, defeated Shippensburg, 75-62, yesterday to give coach Herb Magee his 400th career victory. Magee, accepting congratulations from both his team and his family after the game, said his players performed so well that he might tell them he still had only 399 victories. "I may just lie to them," he said, laughing. "You'd like to think they play hard all the time, but you never know how much effect this had on their play.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Chanel Brissett isn't likely to shrink from a challenge. After all, wilting during adversity doesn't help you qualify for the U.S. Olympic track and field trials as a junior in high school. Before Saturday afternoon's PIAA track and field championships at Shippensburg, however, the Cheltenham phenom was tested. After banging her knee on a hurdle during Friday's 100-meter hurdle preliminaries, Brissett was forced to pull out of the 200 dash later that day. All she did on Saturday was win the Class 3A 100 hurdles in record time and anchor Cheltenham's 4x100 relay team while helping set another record.

Deirdre Kane, whose West Chester women's basketball team was informed that it was hosting the NCAA Division II East Regionals, then learned Monday that it wasn't, summed the bizarre situation up succinctly: "The NCAA giveth," the Golden Rams coach said, "and the NCAA taketh away. " The NCAA gaveth on Sunday, much to Kane's surprise. It tooketh away Monday, reversing itself by naming Shippensburg as the host site. "I honestly, absolutely, positively didn't think they would change their minds," Shippensburg coach Dave Smith said.

SHIPPENSBURG - Nick Marino almost left everything he had in the pole vault pit Friday afternoon at the PIAA track and field championships in Shippensburg.

Throughout her high school career, Liz McGroarty always ran in the postseason track meets in a team of four, with a garnet-colored baton clutched firmly in her hand. That is, until February. The Garnet Valley senior experienced big-meet success in her sophomore and junior seasons as part of the Jaguars' 4x800-meter relay, taking fourth in the state championships at Shippensburg as a sophomore and third place last year as part of a relay that also featured junior Skyler Berardi and 2013 graduates Alyssa Rudawski and Katie Keyser.

This was the last act of Zaza's incredible weekend at the PIAA state track and field championships, and the emotions finally landed on the floor of Seth Grove Stadium. "It's over," Zaza said.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Zach Zulli had a big grin on his face as he walked into the Shippensburg University sports information office. But it wasn't the news of his nomination for the Harlon Hill Award - Division II's version of the Heisman Trophy - that made him happy last week. Nor was it the fact that, after nine games, the junior quarterback led all NCAA divisions in touchdowns, total offense, total passing yards and passing yards per game. It wasn't even that the Red Raiders are ranked No. 7 nationally, the best in school history.
