(Gazette photo by Teri Enciso) Neshaminy suspends coach for irregularities By The Associated Press Neshaminy coach Mark Schmidt, who led his team to the 2001 PIAA Class AAAA football championship, has been suspended for three weeks. Neshaminy superintendent P. Howard Wilson suspended Schmidt and former Neshamihy High School principal Mark Collins for unspecified irregularities. "None of these violations are punishable by PIAA regulations and none involved any eligibility or residence problems with athletes," Wilson wrote in a statement. "However, I have deemed the actions serious enough to suspend the head football coach and former high school principal for a three-week period." According to Wilson, Schmidt and Collins were guilty of an unspecified error .in judgment, but cooperated with investigators. Collins is now the principal at Maple Point Middle School. Stadium problems Two high schools that share the same football stadium might not play any home games this year because of significant construction delays. Scholastic notebook Cedar Cliff and Red Land high schools both use West Shore Stadium, located on the Cedar Cliff High School grounds. The stadium is undergoing a half-million- dollar renovation that includes artificial turf. Construction was supposed to be finished by Aug. 1. However, the company contracted to do the work, SRI Sports of Leander, Texas, did not begin construction until July 22, nearly six weeks behind schedule. That delay, combined with poor weather and unforeseen difficulties may delay the completion of work until the fall sports season is over. Streak stopped Pennsylvania's second-longest football winning streak during regular season play has ended. Windber, a Class A school in District 5, had won 49 consecutive regular-season games dating to a 21-8 loss to Shade on Oct. 17, 1997. But the streak ended last week with a 9-7 loss to Meyersdale. Windber's streak was second only to Strath Haven's ongo- ing 66-game streak. Strath Haven needs three more victories to match Smethport's state record of 69, which ran from 1988 to 1996. Strath Haven, wliich has played in the last four PIAA Class AAA championship games, has a strong opponent Friday in Class AAAA Ridley (30).

(AP) — Long-awaited escape hatches NASCAR has developed to give drivers a quicker exit from wrecked cars can be used in races by Winston Cup teams starting Sept. 28. The roof hatch, which will allow drivers another route of escape in case fire or crash damage blocks their traditional window exit, was developed over a 13- month period at NASCAR's Research and Development Center in Concord, N.C. "The breakthrough on this project came when one of our in- house engineers developed the latch mechanisms that were superior to the others we researched and developed during the project," center director Gary Nelson said Wednesday. Ryan Newman, Dale Jarrett, Bobby Labonte, Rusty Wallace, Todd Bodine. Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace have been forced to exit badly burning cars this year, bringing additional attention to the need for a better escape system. The sanctioning body said use of the hatch will be optional for Winston Cup teams beginning with the EA Sports 500 atTallade- ga Superspeedway. Busch series teams, idle that week, can begin using what NASCAR calls the "alternate exit" Oct. 4 at Kansas Speedway. Nelson said the hatch measures 24 inches by 24 inches, and is located on the roof on the driver's side of the car. It will be controlled by steel cable pull cords in the cockpit that are connected to a latch system. Pulling on one cable will allow the driver to open the exit to the front or rear of the car. Pulling on both cables will remove the hatch completely.
