Chad Smith | August 9, 2013
Editor's note: Chad Smith is taking a break this week. This column originally appeared in 2010.   It seems that women in their 40s are making a comeback.  With older movie and TV actresses dedicating themselves to fitness, and staying in top shape, they've been able to develop firm, attractive bodies that rival those of their twenty- something counterparts.  I've worked with many women in this age group, and I can tell you...

Williamsport coach Randy Longnecker summed up Saturday's game against Catoctin in one sentence. “They just made one more play than we did.” Catoctin's superiority over Williamsport reached the decade mark as the Cougars escaped with an 8-0 win. The game's only score came in the first quarter when Garrett Sprankle scampered 68 yards for a touchdown on his first touch of the game. Running back Taylor Davis followed by sprinting to the right corner of the end zone for the two-point conversion.

Senior Night did not go as well as the South Hagerstown Rebels boys lacrosse team hoped. The Catoctin Cougars had too much for the Rebels, rolling to a 16-3 victory Tuesday night in an MVAL Antietam game at School Stadium. “We're just still learning and growing,” South coach Dave Tallant said. “We know that this is going to be a transitional year. I just think that we need more depth on offense and we need more ability to move the ball. Our JV and youth programs will help us a great deal for the future.

Catoctin girls basketball coach Amy Entwistle came into Friday's MVAL Antietam game at North Hagerstown with two messages for her team. “I told them two things: 'Don't sweat the small stuff and do the little things,'” Entwistle said. Those “little things” added up to a big 51-42 win for the Cougars, who are sitting atop the MVAL Antietam with a 9-1 conference record (11-5 overall). Both teams got off to a slow start in the first quarter, shooting a combined 6-for-31.

Coming off a lackluster 56-37 loss at North Hagerstown on Tuesday night, Smithsburg's girls basketball team came out with a much higher intensity level Friday night on the Leopards' home court against Catoctin. Smithsburg gave this season's MVAL Antietam champions all they could handle for most of the contest. But the Cougars executed better for an eight-minute stretch of the second half, putting together a 19-5 run that broke a 38-38 tie. A last-ditch Leopards rally fell short in a 65-53 loss that was nonetheless promising with the Maryland Class 1A West playoffs two weeks away.

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.

When things went from a sparring match to a full-fledged fight, the North Hagerstown boys basketball team put up its guard. Or in this case, it was its guards. J.R. Railing and Isiaha Keyes guided the Hubs through the dicey parts of a tense fourth quarter on Friday as the Hubs counter-punched their way to a 69-65 MVAL Antietam victory over Catoctin. Railing scored 23 points and Keyes added 16, and the duo combined for 11 points in the fourth quarter as the Hubs outpointed the Cougars in a close game that should have never been.

North Hagerstown’s Iman Scott caught fire in the second quarter to help the Hubs build a lead, and North’s defense did enough in the second half to turn back Catoctin 64-50 on Friday night in a key MVAL Antietam girls basketball game. The victory moves North (5-3, 5-1) into a virtual tie with Catoctin (9-3, 6-1) and Smithsburg (9-1, 5-1) atop the Antietam standings, with each team having just one league loss. Catoctin beat Smithsburg and the Leopards beat the Hubs earlier this season.

SMITHSBURG - Maybe the Catoctin baseball team is building for the future. The thing is, the timetable may actually be for just next week. The Cougars got a strong day from two underclassmen pitchers, as sophomore Chris Kaleo and freshman Chad Wolfe did not allow a single earned run, leading the Cougars to a 6-4 victory over Smithsburg in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League. The two may have gotten their shot because Catoctin (6-12) is getting ready for Friday's Class 1A South quarterfinal game with Glenelg, but they definitely took advantage.

THURMONT, Md. - A decided underdog, the Smithsburg football team didn't need any help falling to Catoctin. The Leopards managed that quite nicely by committing six turnovers. But that's not what had Smithsburg coach Buddy Orndorff so upset after the 33-6 thrashing his club endured in Monday's MVAL Antietam contest. "I thought the penalties were extremely timely," said Orndorff, "but it's like that over here every time we play. Then when (the Cougars) are up 33-0, things start evening out. " Of Smithsburg's five penalties, four went for 15 yards each.
