  • Power chair soccer event set for Chester High Saturday
    Lee Counterman said he assumed that power soccer, which features players in power wheelchairs, was the sort of thing where everybody played and score wasn't kept. He said he got a lesson to the contrary pretty quickly. "They're out there to win," Counterman said. "I thought it was just recreational but they let me know it was a very competitive game."
  • Stampede reunite for tournament win
    By the end of the season last year, Chester High wrestling coach Joe Conlan was bald-headed. He hopes the same holds true this year. Conlan didn't pull his hair out in frustration during the 2009-'10 season. He made a deal with his team that if three of them made it to the state finals, they could shave his head. The Cyclones ended up with five wrestlers competing for state. "This year I had to up the ante a little. I told them if we get five this year, they can shave my head again," Conlan said.
