FREDERICK, Md. - One of the basic rules of first aid is to put pressure on a wound to stop the bleeding. Frederick girls basketball coach Todd Bono applied the theory, and his players applied the pressure, forcing 15 second-half turnovers to resuscitate the Cadets in a 51-41 win over Springbrook Thursday night in the Class 4A West semifinals. "That was the key," said Bono of Frederick's pressure defense. "(Springbrook) packed it in with their 3-2 and 2-3 defenses, so we needed to get some baskets from transition, and our press gave us a few transition buckets.

koelble@herald-mail.com THURMONT, Md. - The 10th annual Catoctin Duals turned into a one-day wrestling extravaganza for Walkersville as the Lions won the tournament title for the first time, racking up 296 team points in four winning matches and then defeating Springbrook, 61-6, in a special title match. The tournament format was adjusted when Friday's opening-round was canceled, and when Edmondson also did not show up. Tourney officials switched to a team point-total format with each school wrestling four matches.

North Hagerstown wrestling coach Greg Slick doesn't seem like the easiest guy to shake. But even he admitted that he was scared to death Saturday night. The fate of his team came down to a coin flip, as the Hubs were tied with Walter Johnson for the fourth and final spot for Wednesday's Maryland Class 4A-3A West region dual-meet championships. And only one of them would advance. “Honestly, I was terrified,” Slick said. “I was afraid that after the way these kids have wrestled all season that I'd lose the coin toss.” Hours after the Hubs swept a tri-meet with Fort Hill and Francis Scott Key on Saturday to finish their regular season on an 11-match winning streak, they scored an even bigger victory.

SMITHSBURG -- Her school. Her tournament. Her bracket. Smithsburg senior Monica Hovermale dominated the 103-pound weight class for the third straight year Wednesday at the 21st annual Leopard Holiday Invitational. After needing a total of only 74 seconds to pin her first two opponents in the quarterfinals and semifinals, Hovermale shut out John Carroll's Devin Davis 10-0 in the finals to capture her third straight title at the tourney. It was just business as usual for Hovermale, who barely celebrated her championship victory.

andrewm@herald-mail.com SMITHSBURG - All holiday shows need a feel-good ending. So it only seemed appropriate when Smithsburg senior Justin Mackrell - who just cracked the Leopards' varsity wrestling lineup for the first time earlier this week - won the 275-pound crown in the day's final bout at the 14th annual Leopard Holiday Invitational on Saturday. "Everybody knows me because I've been wrestling forever," said Mackrell, who brought the Smithsburg gymnasium to its feet when he pinned Brunswick's Mack Carson early in the third period of the final.

FREDERICK, Md. - During last year's trip to the Class 4A semifinals, the Frederick girls basketball team took its big suitcase with it - plenty of room for cameras and souvenirs and other things to take home. Today, the Cadets will be hauling the economy-size luggage to their 3 p.m. matchup with Arundel at the UMBC Fieldhouse, because this is just a business trip. "We're not going just for fun this time," said sophomore guard Kristal Hood said. "We're going to win," senior forward Laura Jobe said.
