McCormick exceeds expectations By DAN KAUFFMAN / Staff Writer Middletown senior Greg McCormick gave a word of warning as he entered the Monocacy Valley Athletic League indoor track meet.

McCormick wasn't even sure he would compete Saturday at the Hagerstown Community College's athletic complex - not just because of his continued recovery from a neck injury, but because of a hip pointer he suffered last week. And even then he waited an hour before he picked up his pole and almost two before he took his first warmup approach for the high jump.

Williamsport track coach John Bailey said that Morgan Keplinger and Amy Taylor "are the heart of that girls team.

It might seem like Boonsboro senior Josh Testa came out of nowhere in indoor track this year. In some ways, he did - just ask the Williamsport Wildcats. Testa overcame a seemingly insurmountable deficit on the final lap of the 800-meter run at the Washington County championships on Jan. 18 as he edged Williamsport's Cody Grams at the finish line for the victory. It was a four-point swing in a meet Boonsboro ultimately won by three points, 154-151, over the heavily favored Wildcats.

" That's why Mease's top priority Monday evening at the Maryland Class 1A West championships at Hagerstown Community College was to qualify as many athletes as possible for the state meet Feb. 18 in Landover, Md. "I'd rather have a full bus than a region title," Mease said.
