andrewm@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - Perhaps no one had an easier time of it than Middletown starting pitcher Wes Bidle on Wednesday. Still, with enough cushioning to break the fall of most circus acts, the Knights sophomore didn't clown around. At least No. 5 Williamsport wasn't laughing. Staked to a 10-run lead before he ever even stepped foot on the mound, Bidle held the Wildcats to one hit over four shutout innings as Middletown won the Monocacy Valley Athletic League matchup 10-0 in five innings.

MIDDLETOWN, Md. -- Based on history, few would have thought North Hagerstown could get past Middletown, especially on the road. However, the Hubs girls basketball team wrote a new chapter on Tuesday, penning a 58-49 victory on the Knights' hardwood, the first time North has been victorious at Middletown. It was also the first time since the 1999-2000 season North had beaten Middletown -- period. It also avenged a 53-34 loss to the Knights on Dec. 20. "We had a desire to succeed and I think it shows some of the mental toughness we've developed in the past month," said North coach Barry Brown, one night after the Hubs survived a physical battle for a come-from-behind win over Frederick.
