CLEAR SPRING - Clear Spring's Ashley Keeney pulled up and deftly hit a rainbow 10-footer at the buzzer, signaling for the party to begin.
The shot allowed the faithful few in the stands to stand and cheer wildly while the rest of the Blazers raced across the floor to give Keeney hugs and smiles of congratulations.
Sure, the fiinal score was North Hagerstown 56, Clear Spring 27, but it was still time to feel good.
"Hey, we celebrate each and every baby step, and believe me, we are getting better," Clear Spring coach Jeff Hall said. "We will never quit and the time is coming when this attitude will pay off."
It's worth every second of celebration just because Clear Spring continues to play with exuberance despite a winless streak that spans 1 1/2 seasons. Its a testament to the spirit and determination the Blazers and Hall.
