As easy as 1-2-3: Smithsburg sweeps hurdles to highlight county meet
SMITHSBURG - For Smithsburg hurdlers Matt Seifarth, Mark Hutzell and Kyle Dingle, it was just another Thursday workout on their home track.
Except this wasn't a practice session. This was the Washington County Championships, and there was business to attend to.

"I knew there'd be smiles on all their faces if we went 1-2-3," Seifarth said after the trio did just that in the 110-meter high hurdles, leading the Leopards' boys to a second-place team finish.
"It's something we worked for all three years," Hutzell added. "It's like a dream come true for us."
Williamsport claimed the boys title with 193 1/2 points as Nathan Buchman won both the 1,600 and 3,200. Smithsburg's girls won their eighth county championship in nine years, scoring 215 points to outdistance North Hagerstown.
