'BORO BOYS ARE ON THE RISE: At the beginning of the season, it looked like it was going to be a long year for Waynesboro's boys basketball team.

The Indians started 0-8 but may have now hit their stride.

Waynesboro got its name in the win column for the first time at the New Oxford Christmas tournament with a 40-34 victory over Bermudian Springs. The Indians then went on a three-game skid, but produced a huge upset over Shippensburg has won three of its last four and is 4-12 (3-6 MPC). It has won three straight division games.

Cameron Keck has been Waynesboro's leading scorer all season long and is now averaging 14.1 points per game, but a big difference for the Indians recently has been Keck's supporting cast.

In the 60-51 win over Ship, the Indians had two others finish in double figures for points - Mitch Neterer with 16, and Kyle Hoffman with 10. In Waynesboro's next victory, a win over Boiling Springs, Neterer led the way with 18 points, and in a 55-59 defeat of Northern, both Kyle Hoffman (19 points) and Dakota Rhyne (11) were all big offensive contributors.

RANKINGS NUMBERS: In boys basketball, two Franklin County teams are currently above the cutoff line for the District 3 playoffs - James Buchanan is ranked No. 11 in Class AAA, and Greencastle-Antrim is No. 15 in Class AAAA.

Greencastle is the only area team in good shape for the girls basketball playoffs, sitting at No. 6 in Class AAA. James Buchanan is currently at No. 20 - two places out of the running.

In wrestling, three area teams are close, but are not inside the cut line. In Class AAA, the first 16 make the field and Chambersburg (18), Shippensburg (20) and Waynesboro (21) are close.

In District 5 basketball, McConnellsburg and Southern Fulton are 1-2 in the boys Class A rankings, while in girls, McConnellsburg is No. 2, Southern Fulton is No. 4 and Forbes Road is No. 6.
