SMITHSBURG -- It may be time to consider Smithsburg a contender in the MVAL Antietam softball race. After drubbing South Hagerstown and Brunswick -- the only two winless teams in Antietam play through Tuesday -- in their first two conference games, the Leopards took a step up in competition on Wednesday and took another step forward, blasting Boonsboro 12-2 in six innings. "I think if we play our game, we can hang with most of the teams in the league," Smithsburg coach Katy Barnhart said.

Ethan Foster got the first call offensively from scrimmage for Boonsboro to begin the 2013 season. He also scored the first touchdown in thrilling fashion. Foster went up the middle for a 93-yard touchdown run and it helped push the Warriors to a 25-15 victory over Walkersville. Welcome to 2A! Walkersville took the opening drive at its own 32 and reached the Boonsboro 7 before stalling on downs. With the change of possession, it was Boonsboro's turn and Foster got the call on what head coach Clayton Anders said afterward: “It's our No. 1 nuts and bolts play.” “That score was big momentum for us,” Anders said.

Last year, Boonsboro became the first cross country program in Washington County to win both girls and boys team titles at the Maryland state meet in the same season, accomplishing the feat in Class 1A. Now, beginning this school year, the Warriors are in 2A. “Last year the goal was to win states, and that's still the goal,” Boonsboro coach Becky Walter said. “Obviously we're in 2A and the competition is a lot better, just more depth all around. But these kids are working hard for it. They want to prove that they didn't just win in 1A, but that they can win in 2A as well.” While the Boonsboro girls have lost three of their top-five scorers from last year's team to graduation, including individual state champion Sarah Zielinski, they have a pair of big-time additions to join top returnees Kortney Cunningham, a senior, and Ella Hawkins, a junior, at the front of the pack.
