SMITHSBURG - Williamsport junior Kelly Beard fired a three-hitter with a walk and 10 strikeouts, leading the No. 5 Wildcats past Smithsburg 5-2 in an MVAL Antietam softball game Friday. Beard improved to 9-2 for Williamsport (13-2, 7-2). "Basically, I just wanted to keep them off-balance with a lot of changeups," Beard said. "I kind of kept my changeup low to make them chase it. I felt good warming up. I guess I just had a good game. " Beard helped her own cause by driving in three runs.

Apparently, all you have to do is love your bat. Boonsboro senior Eli Beard showed affection to his stick before Friday night's game against Williamsport and the bat returned the favor. Beard homered and ripped a winning three-run double in the top of the seventh to lift Boonsboro to a thrilling 11-8 win under a steady rain at Municipal Stadium. "I licked my bat before the game," said Beard, who finished 3-for-4. "My buddy did it once and it helped him, so I did it to help me get out of a slump.

WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport junior Kelly Beard was more than prepared for her softball team's season opener Wednesday against North Hagerstown. Beard went 3-for-3 with a home run and pitched a complete game with 12 strikeouts as the Wildcats prevailed, 8-5. "All of my hard work with pitching all winter long paid off," said Beard, who allowed only three earned runs, all in the final inning. "In the beginning, I thought I was in control with my pitching. At the end, I was getting tired a little bit and they were hitting me. But I stayed with it and finished it off. " Last summer, Beard played on the Heartbreakers 16-U Red Team in Frederick.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - It is three o'clock on a Wednesday and the faint sound of a piano fills the empty corridors of Shepherd University's Creative Arts Center. Down the hall, a professor jingles his keys as he locks his office. The usual bustle of students going to and from class is gone. It is spring break. "I will see you next week," Professor Scott Beard says as he opens his office door and waves goodbye to one of his piano students. Closing the door, he sighs and sits behind his desk.

SMITHSBURG - Kelly Beard struck out 14 batters without allowing an earned run in seven innings to lead Williamsport to an 8-2 win over Smithsburg on Thursday in an MVAL Antietam softball game. "I had to mix up my pitches to keep them off-balance and I had to throw strikes," Beard said. "Practice pays off. I have got to keep practicing. I was a little stressed in the beginning. But when the team started hitting, I knew I could relax and throw strikes. " Beard let her teammates do a lot of the work to help her to the complete-game victory.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - Andrew Pecora routinely takes his family's Ford Escape to the Baltimore-area car dealership where Tom Reynolds manages the service department. But it wasn't until Saturday at the 33rd annual Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs - about 100 miles from home - that their respective, blue ribbon-winning beards finally brought them together. "My wife (Amy) recognized him right off the bat," Pecora said of Reynolds and his bushy white beard after they were recognized by judges assembled for the festival's beard and mustache contest.

WILLIAMSPORT - Tyler Beard made a mental mistake in the first inning, but it was the only faux pas he - or any of his teammates - made on Tuesday. Williamsport opened its second season with a near-perfect 7-0 victory over Beall in the Maryland Class 1A West Region tournament, the sixth straight win for the resurgent Wildcats. The win also exacted a bit of revenge from last season when Beall knocked out Williamsport (12-9) in the region finals. Beard went 4-for-4, scored three runs, stole three bases, had a hand in both of Williamsport's double plays and was in another key play that helped pushed the momentum to the Wildcats.

WILLIAMSPORT - For Kelly Beard, it was simply a matter of throwing strikes. But for Tom Dzur, it wasn't quite that easy. "This is our fourth close game in a row. ... That's hard on an old man," said Dzur after his Williamsport softball team escaped with a 4-3 MVAL Antietam win over North Hagerstown Wednesday. The Hubs collected a pair of singles in the seventh off Beard, the Wildcats' starter, but a double play thwarted a possible game-tying rally. "I just knew I had to throw strikes," said Beard.
