In Katy Barnhart's final two seasons as a player on Smithsburg's girls basketball team, the Leopards reached the state tournament in 2002 and 2003. It took Barnhart two seasons as head coach to return Smithsburg back to the state tournament for the first time since her senior year. "It was an amazing experience," said Barnhart, the 2010 Herald-Mail Washington County Girls Basketball Coach of the Year. The Leopards went 21-4 overall and 11-1 in the MVAL Antietam to win the conference title before advancing all the way to the Maryland Class 1A state final for the first time since 2002.

This is one of the very few times you will see the name Adam Barnhart in the sports section. Unfortunately, you won't get the chance to read how Adam ran for the winning touchdown, touched them all after hitting a home run or even used a feathery touch to drain a winning basket. Adam is confined to a wheelchair and never has had the chance to make those kinds of sports memories. You will never see Adam quoted in story, because he doesn't speak. And yet, Adam has a touch that most everyone wishes they possessed.
