SMITHSBURG - Off the court, the Smithsburg girls basketball team acts like it's at a slumber party gone haywire: constant chattering, gossiping, laughing out loud, playfully pushing each other around. "We all get along real well," senior guard Eariel Gholson said. "Sure, everybody has their days, but we're good. And they always make fun of me. " Just stay away from the pillowfights. On the court, the Leopards are a take-no-prisoners bunch who haven't backed down from anyone on their way to a berth in Friday's Class 1A state semifinals at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.

All things being equal, Friday's girls basketball game between Clear Spring and South Hagerstown could have been much closer. The Blazers and Rebels did end up equal in the field goal column, as each team made 13 buckets from the floor. But from the free-throw line, it wasn't even close. The Blazers made a modest 57 percent (17 of 30) from the foul line, a figure that dwarfed South's 25 percent (4 of 16) as Clear Spring beat the Rebels 43-30 in an MVAL Antietam game. "We have really been working on foul shots in practice," Clear Spring coach Erin Wadel said.

Williamsport coach Chris Malott said he couldn't be happier after Tuesday's 45-36 win over host North Hagerstown in an MVAL Antietam upset. The Wildcats displayed a lot of balance in their victory. The bench contributed just as much as the starters, the offense executed plays and the defense made the necessary stops. “We put four good quarters together tonight,” Malott said. “It was a total team effort.” Williamsport (7-10, 3-8) set the tone early, as four different players - Casey Arnone, Stacey Christy, Caroline Strite and Erin Palmer - combined to score the Wildcats' 10 first-quarter points.
