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.

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. "Don't expect anything from me," he said. 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.

kauffman@herald-mail.com A year later, nothing has changed for Boonsboro junior Brett Morrell. Last year, Morrell went to University of Maryland-Baltimore County looking for three Class 1A state track championships to call his own. He walked away with two - the 300-meter hurdles and the long jump - and an agonizing second in the 110 hurdles. Morrell heads back to UMBC on Thursday and Saturday, with his sights set on the same prizes. "It was my goal last year, and it has been ever since," Morrell said after last Friday's 1A West championships.

While Super Bowl XLII was one for the ages, Williamsport indoor track coach Cindy Mease can't stop thinking about Super Bowl XL. "Pittsburgh road The Bus to the Super Bowl," she said. "We are riding the bus to states. We have a charter bus to fill. " 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.
