CLEAR SPRING -- Jon Connors is a junior in his second season of football at Clear Spring, yet he is being touted as a team leader for the Blazers in the 2008 prep football season. At 6-foot-1 and a sturdy 190 pounds, Connors will lead his teammates into battle as the Blazers hope to crack the victory column following an 0-10 record last year. "I think six or seven wins is doable if we continue to learn more in practice and practice harder," said Connors. "There is a stronger feeling around and more guys wanting to play this year.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Morgan County Sheriff's Department's treasured Special Response Vehicle once was trash on wheels. The 1993 Chevrolet 3500 truck was a Morgan County Rescue Service ambulance for about six years, Chief Deputy Sheriff Vince Shambaugh said on Monday. "The motor blew last summer," he said, and it now has a Chevrolet Blazer motor that was recycled from the Town of Paw Paw (W.Va.) Police Department. The motor was free. The total cost to renovate the vehicle was about $1,600.

kauffman@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Geography was no issue for South Hagerstown boys basketball coach Bob Starkey on Saturday night. "The fact that they're the No. 1 team in West Virginia, and we spanked them at home," Starkey said of the Rebels' dominating 75-66 victory over Martinsburg, "I guess that means we're the No. 1 team in West Virginia. " Not exactly. But South - currently the No. 2 team in The Herald-Mail poll - could well be five days away from being the new No. 1 after gaining revenge on the current No. 1 Bulldogs for a 64-60 loss at South on Dec. 30. David Miner - held to a season-low 15 points in the first game with Martinsburg - couldn't be contained the second time, as he attacked the Bulldogs' defense relentlessly for 33 points.

SMITHSBURG -- Ask Josh Conway to choose between playing offense or defense and you'll initially get a very short answer. "Oh, wow. " Fortunately, the Smithsburg senior doesn't have to choose one or the other -- and that makes coach Buddy Orndorff happy, too. "Truthfully, there is no one side of the ball for him. He's just a football player," Orndorff said. "He's solid on both sides of the ball. He is definitely not a one-dimensional kid. " The numbers from 2007 support Orndorff's assessment of Conway, who enters the 2008 season as one of the top two-way players in the Tri-State area.

It's an adrenaline rush as I dash across the field, a cool carbon dioxide tank pressed against my chest. As I dodge objects moving at 300 hundred feet per second, I'm having fun playing paintball. Paintball is the fastest growing recreational sport, according to an ESPN report, with many versions of play. The sport was started in 1981. Today, tournaments such as the Tampa Open and World Cup attract as many as 200 teams. It has become so popular that major cities have formed teams to compete at these competitions.

As impressive as that was, the Hubs are just now beginning to reap the full rewards. Thompson is back this season, fully healthy and leading the way, while the players who stepped in to fill her shoes last season are now complementing her this season, adding talent and depth to North's top-ranked team.

andrewm@herald-mail.com The Woodrow Wilson boys soccer team will have its hands full with Martinsburg senior forward Nick Benavides. When the teams meet in the West Virginia state semifinals Friday in Beckley, that's almost a certainty. Benavides, a leading candidate for West Virginia Player of the Year, is the Tri-State's leader in points (90) and points per game (4.74) with his 31 goals and 28 assists. "It's real hard to take Nick out of his game. It takes two defenders, and a lot of times that doesn't work," Martinsburg coach Greg Miller said.
