With one event left at the Maryland State Track & Field Championships last month in Baltimore, Williamsport coach John Bailey had only one thing on his mind -- that last event, the high jump. What Bailey didn't know was that his girls were in second place in the Class 1A team standings, trailing Western Tech by eight points. He'd find out soon enough. "I don't keep scores as the meets are run. I've never done that," Bailey said. "I'm more intent on watching the kids and seeing how they do, and then seeing how things work out afterwards.

Williamsport has had one of the area's most dominant girls track and field teams since John Bailey took over as head coach three years ago. This spring, the Williamsport girls ran away with the MVAL Antietam Conference, Washington County and Maryland Class 1A West team titles - not that Bailey will accept much of the credit for the success. "You can't just have a good head coach and have a good team," said Bailey, who spent nearly two decades as an assistant coach at Williamsport.

There's no doubt that John Bailey could have achieved a lot more with the Williamsport track and field program. But what he did achieve with the Wildcats was more than enough. Bailey, 47, recently resigned as Williamsport's coach after 25 years with the program. “I had an old coach who once said that if you ever started questioning whether it was time to step away, it probably was time,” he said. “I had some success, and now it's time for some other people to step in and see what they can do. “I bleed blue for Williamsport, and I wish them all the success.
