SMITHSBURG -- Catoctin got the lion's share in its MVAL Antietam matchup with Smithsburg on Friday. The Cougars used a seven-run first inning and built from there to knock off the Leopards in a 14-4 decision shortened to six innings by the 10-run rule. Catoctin (5-4) got started quickly with the help of a Smithsburg error that plated the first two runs in the first. It led to Tanner Ausherman's three-run homer before Aaron Schroyer walked five straight batters to add the final two runs.

The North Hagerstown boys basketball team handed Catoctin a thank-you note without wasting the cost of a stamp. The Hubs did it old-school Valentine style on Friday. They just handed it to the Cougars in the gym. North showed its gratitude with defensive pressure that ran Catoctin out of the gym in a 79-44 MVAL Antietam victory. It was the Hubs’ way of saying thanks for the 75-73 upset the Cougars collected the first time they played on Jan. 14. “I’m not one for revenge.

View all of the photos for purchase! HAGERSTOWN -- South Hagerstown goalie Drake Kessell won't be blamed by coach John Chirgott for Tuesday's 20-3 loss to Catoctin. "We thought we had a chance to hang with them," said Chirgott. That chance began to dwindle in the first quarter and was out of reach by halftime as the Cougars pulled away to a 13-0 lead. "You can't blame the goalie," said Chirgott. "Our defense, the midfielders, they weren't picking up the sliders across the attack zone.

North Hagerstown wrestling coach Greg Slick had Catoctin sized up pretty well before their MVAL Antietam Conference showdown Thursday night. “When I looked at it on paper, I thought they were going to score 30 points,” he said. “I was only hoping we'd score 31.” The Hubs did that and more. They beat the host Cougars 42-30 to take home the Antietam title, completing a perfect run through the conference. It was the first Antietam loss for Catoctin (17-4, 3-1), which began the night as the No. 14 dual-meet team in the Maryland State Wrestling Association's top-20 state poll.

keller@herald-mail.com SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - The Fort Hill Sentinels know all about big games. They prepare each week to take the best shots from opponents hoping to knock off the perennial powerhouse and playoff team. Then there is Jefferson. It's safe to say the No. 4 Cougars, the surprise team in the Tri-State area this season, haven't played a game as big as Friday's Cumberland Valley Athletic League matchup with Fort Hill in a dozen years. That inexperience showed in the second half as the poised Sentinels bulled their way to a 28-7 victory over the Cougars, who saw their five-game winning streak snapped.

In a rain-soaked boys lacrosse contest on Wednesday, Boonsboro fought tooth and nail to try to sweep the season series from Catoctin. In the end, however, a four-goal fourth period gave the Cougars a 9-7 victory over the Warriors. The game was tied 5-5 heading into the final period, before Catoctin's John Wilhelm scored three fastbreak goals and Charles McGlaughlin added a score to put Boonsboro (2-5) away. “(Catoctin) scored a few fastbreak goals on us tonight,” said Boonsboro coach Phil Aversa.

Wednesday's bitter cold and swirling winds didn't seem to affect Catoctin's baseball team in its MVAL Antietam matchup against Boonsboro. Alex Kennedy pitched a complete game as the Cougars shut out the Warriors, 8-0. Kennedy was a model of efficiency for the Cougars (4-1, 1-1), collecting seven strikeouts without a walk in 62 pitches for his first win of the season. “(Alex) strikes out a lot of guys. He had 10 against Clear Spring in his first outing and today was no different,” said Catoctin coach Mike Franklin.

Williamsport High School is a smoke-free facility, so the Wildcats were only allowed to have blindfolds. The Williamsport football team suffered through a bit of an execution on Saturday. It was death by Catoctin's muddling offense. The Cougars used a maze of counters, traps and sweeps to keep Williamsport defending blindly as Catoctin ran up 456 yards of offense to hang a 40-7 loss on the Wildcats to tarnish the glow of Homecoming in an MVAL Antietam matchup. “They make it hard to find the ball,” said Williamsport coach Randy Longnecker.

One year ago, Tione Womack was lost. Bad grades not only put him on the sidelines for the Hagerstown Community College basketball team, they put him in the bleachers. Right then, something clicked. He spent the 2011-12 school year trying to get everything back. And on Thursday, Womack was found. The HCC point guard will be at the University of Houston next fall after signing a letter of intent to play for the up-and-coming Cougars in an informal ceremony before friends, family and teammates in a classroom at HCC's athletic complex.

The Hagerstown Community College baseball team has been living on a diet of cookies and orange juice lately. For the last week, the Hawks have been giving blood - and lots of it. The latest donation came on Thursday, as Frederick Community College came up with one big inning in each game of a doubleheader in a 7-1, 14-10 Maryland JuCo Conference sweep of the Hawks, pushing HCC's losing streak to six games. “For the last six games, one inning comes up and kills us,” said HCC coach Scott Jennings.

You can't ask for anything better to start the baseball season than scoring eight runs in the first inning. The Jefferson baseball team rolled into Hagerstown on a cool and windy but sun-drenched Thursday and headed back home after five innings with a 19-2 romp over St. Maria Goretti in the season opener for both teams. From the very first batter, when Goretti's Adam Blenckstone walked Anthony DiAmario, it was all Cougars. Jefferson had 12 hits and took advantage of three hit batsmen and eight walks, scoring in every inning.

The Williamsport boys basketball team was 1-for-2 in achieving its goals Tuesday night against Catoctin. That pretty much matched the Wildcats' performance from the free throw line. The Wildcats beat winless Catoctin 61-39 in an MVAL Antietam matchup, allowing them to place a check mark next to their first goal. Williamsport coach Scott Mowbray gave his team an incomplete on the second goal. “Our goals each game are to get the win and be better than we were the game before,” Mowbray said.
