Dustin Adams, Wade Miller and Ryan Shifler helped the Clear Spring boys cross country team win its second straight Maryland Class 1A state title in 2006.
Two years later, they're still together --Â and winning.
Adams placed second, Miller was third and Shifler was seventh at the recent Region XX Cross Country Championships, as they helped Hagerstown Community College win the men's team title.
"Thank the Lord for Clear Spring right now," HCC assistant coach Jaime Dick said.
Other Washington County schools have chipped in, too.
Corey Centofonti, a two-time county cross country champ for Smithsburg, won the region race. Justin Cole, a four-time state medalist in cross country for Williamsport, was fifth.
Dick and head coach Brian Ferrari have turned their local recruits into the 21st-ranked team in NJCAA Division I.
Throw in former Pennsylvania prep stars Mike Podlesnik and Jeremiah Wilt -- who both were sidelined for the region meet --Â and the Hawks are set for the national championships Saturday in Spartansburg, S.C.
