The St. Maria Goretti boys cross country team finished with a flurry. The Gaels won their second straight title at the third annual Hagerstown City Championship at Hagerstown Community College on Monday to wrap up their six-meet season schedule - just two days after they successfully defended their title at the Independent-Parochial School League Championship. “Last year there were nine days between the IPSL and city championships, but due to scheduling there were only 48 hours this year,” Goretti coach Mike Spinnler said.

Caroline Schemel knew where she was going this time. The Greencastle-Antrim sophomore was the girls champion Saturday at Smithsburg's 23rd annual Don Stoner Cross Country Invitational - a year after she took a wrong turn at the meet, which cost her a second-place finish and cost the Blue Devils a team title. “That was awful. I was pretty upset last year,” she said. “But I know the course really well now. I paid close attention during the (pre-race) course walk.” Schemel passed North Hagerstown's Emily Ward midway through the hilly 3.04-mile race to take the lead, and she held on to win in 19:51.4.
