While Boonsboro hasn't won a girls cross country title since 1995, and its boys never have placed higher than second, the Warriors might have the runners to contend for both Maryland Class 1A championships this fall. One thing's for sure, Boonsboro indeed has runners - a program-record 51 of them (25 girls and 26 boys). “There's a lot of bodies working hard,” Warriors coach Becky Walter said. The Boonsboro girls return four of their top seven runners from last year's team that won the Washington County title and finished second at states, including senior Sarah Zielinski, junior Kortney Cunningham and sophomore Ella Hawkins, who took three of the top six places at the county championships last fall.

There often are two sides to everything and everyone. Just look at Evan Hardy. The Williamsport senior seemingly is as nice and polite as they come. He's an Eagle Scout and a straight-A student. But put him in a pair of track spikes, and he'll dish out pain and punishment like there's no tomorrow - lap after lap after lap. “He's a very ferocious competitor. He likes fighting his way to the top,” said Williamsport track coach Teresa Weaver. “He's a nice guy until the gun goes off, and if you're on the track, you're fair game.” Hardy set his sights on another pair of Maryland state titles this winter in the Class 2A 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs, and he bagged them both, while collecting numerous other accolades along the way. He is The Herald-Mail's 2011-12 Washington County Boys Indoor Track & Field Athlete of the Year.

Peak performances are hard to reach - and maybe even more difficult to time. “You have to walk right on the edge of that cliff without going over,” Williamsport cross country coach Randy Buchman said. His boys stayed on their feet this fall, capping a fantastic season by placing second in Class 2A at the Maryland state championships last month - the best finish for a Williamsport boys team at states in 33 years. Buchman, who had his share of disappointments at previous state meets, is The Herald-Mail's 2011 Washington County Cross Country Coach of the Year.

“Consistency,” “character,” “coachable,” “cheerful.” Williamsport cross country coach Randy Buchman used a lot of “C” words when recently talking about his star runner, senior Evan Hardy. “Content” wasn't one of them, not surprisingly. Hardy always wants more - to be faster, stronger and better than before. Relative to his competition this season, though, he was all of those things. Hardy is The Herald-Mail's Washington County Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year for the second straight year.

Winning is great, as is recording fast times. But to Sarah Zielinski, nothing beats just the simple act of running. “I love to run,” the Boonsboro junior said. “I'm really motivated by the fact that I love running.” The sport of cross country brought out the best in her again this fall, as Zielinski was named The Herald-Mail's Washington County Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year for the second straight year. “She had a great season and did exactly what we asked her to do at most meets,” Boonsboro coach Becky Walter said.
