The following article was printed by the Chambersburg (Pa.) Public Opinion about an high school alumni race that featured Upstate assistant coach Ed Schlicher, a graduate of Chambersburg High School, and Spartan runner Conrad Goeringer, a graduate from rival Carlisle High School.
By Christian Worstell
The rivalry between Chambersburg and Carlisle high schools was evident right from the start at the eighth annual Chambersburg Alumni Cross Country Run at the Tim Cook Memorial Course at Falling Spring Elementary School on Saturday. With runners on their marks, race organizer Andrew Mason made a brief announcement before sending them on their way.
"If somebody falls in the first 50 meters we'll have a restart," declared Mason, a 1990 CASHS graduate. "Unless you're from Carlisle, then tough."
This year's edition of the fund-raising event brought a new and exciting twist. Alumni from rival Carlisle were added to the mix and the race was scored between the two teams. Fifty-eight men and women competed in the 5k race, including 49 former or current runners from the two schools.
And the old warfare between the blue and green was renewed for many.
"This is something to get excited about," said 2000 CASHS graduate Ed Schlichter, who won the race for the fifth time. "Back when I was in high school, Carlisle was the team to beat. I'll never forget our dual track meets against them under the lights at Trojan Stadium."
