The Hagerstown Community College women’s basketball team signed a package deal and supersized it on Tuesday. On the surface, HCC coach Marlys Palmer added two prime Washington County recruits by signing Smithsburg’s Katie Sprecher and Boonsboro’s Ashley Smothers to the program. The Hawks got much more in the process. “I think this is a landslide for us,” Palmer said. “Katie can do so much and we love Ashley’s athleticism so much. This is huge. With these two players, we get two, but it was like signing four or five.” Sprecher comes to HCC after playing with the ultrasuccessful juggernaut of female athletes in Smithsburg’s senior class that has dominated county prep sports for two seasons.

It wasn't a case of what the Hagerstown Community College baseball team did. It was more a matter of what the Hawks didn't do.

The opening game of the Region XX baseball tournament had a little of everything. It was topped with the drama and suspense that come with extra innings and tight play. It took more than five hours and 17 innings to play and featured everything but a home run. In the end, that is probably what Hagerstown Community College wished it would have had in its final at-bat. Second-seeded Chesapeake College outlasted the Hawks to win the 9-8 marathon at HCC. The Skipjacks, batting as the home team, didn't take the lead until the very last play of the game but never wavered throughout, answering each HCC run no matter the situation.

The Hagerstown Community College baseball team had just as many hit batters - six - as hits on Wednesday. The bumps and bruises led to a 4-3 Maryland JuCo victory over Montgomery-Germantown. Fittingly, the winning run scored on - what else? - a walkoff hit batter. “We can't control that,” HCC coach Scott Jennings said. “It worked for us today. It gave us ways to get on base.” The Hawks (29-25, 13-12) were locked in a 3-3 tie with Germantown (32-16, 11-11) entering the bottom of the ninth.
