School Stadium was packed on Friday night to see Hagerstown's two public high schools - North and South - duke it out in their annual football showdown. The bleachers on opposite sides of the field were filled with red-clad North fans and green-clad South fans. Some took extra steps to show their spirit, dying their hair the appropriate team color. The bands entertained, students cheered, burgers sizzled on the grill. Bruce Carter, the father of a South High band member, worked one of the french fry fryers.

Members of the South Hagerstown High School marching band were on a mission Saturday to win on their home turf after placing second last year in the Tournament of Bands championship. Junior Kellilyn Meyer said part of the band's strategy included relying on their knowledge of every terrain feature on the field. “We're pretty pumped,” she said. “We know where all the bumps are and everything. We can use it to help boost our scores.” The South Hagerstown High School band was one of 15 to compete in the Tournament of Bands Chapter V Championships.

The Warriors fielded one of its smallest teams ever, both in physical size and in numbers. Only 30 players were listed on the Boonsboro roster. Only eight players were listed at 6 feet or taller. Only four players were listed at more than 200 pounds. “If you looked at the roster, you'd be shaking your head and wondering, 'How are they going to make this work?

“I've been reading about the University of Maryland cutting out the lesser-known sports programs, just to save money. Well, if I were the parents of those students that were participating in these lesser-known sports, I would say, hey, what do we need all these cheerleaders for, for the basketball team and the football team, and the big moneymaking sports events? I always thought cheerleaders were a waste of time and money. ... Cut that money out.” - Hagerstown “This call is pertaining to the University of Maryland football team.

I love it when freckled, grass-stained kids from two tough football programs with long-standing grudges get down in the dirt and the mud and settle the score where it was meant to be settled — in a courtroom. Even so, you have to feel for the Martinsburg Bulldogs, who were sitting around this week waiting to find out who they should have played last week. Martinsburg we knew; the Bulldogs were in the state championship game based on on-field accomplishments. But their opponent had to be decided not on the field, but by the West Virginia Supreme Court, at least indirectly.
