Being the coach's kid only counts for so much in a sport like track and field, where results usually supersede any kind of favoritism. While South Hagerstown coach Dwayne Freeman said his daughter, Hayley Freeman, never received any special treatment, he couldn't help but recognize that her work ethic indeed was special - as were her results. At the Maryland state championships - her final high school meet - on Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore, the senior won a Class 3A gold medal in the 4x100-meter relay, silver medals in both the 300 hurdles and 4x200 relay and she placed fourth in the 100 hurdles.

It's more than a little unusual when a host track and field team does not run in its own meet, as was the case at Friday's Clear Spring Invitational. Then again, nothing has been typical about this week for the Blazers family. Still mourning the death of senior Quinn Hoover - a 17-year-old student and member of the Blazers' track team, who was fatally injured in an auto accident Sunday and was taken off life support Tuesday - Clear Spring sat out of its invitational and postponed its other after-school activities.

If each athlete wasn't limited to four events at a track and field meet, perhaps Nick Seabright would have led the Boonsboro boys to a Class 1A team title at the Maryland state championships this spring. With his four events, though, the senior still carried the Warriors nearly to the top. At the state meet on Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore, Seabright won both the 110- and 300-meter hurdles, placed second in the pole vault and anchored his 4x100 relay team to second place, as Boonsboro finished a close second to Perryville, 95.5 to 90, in the team standings.

Western Tech looked poised to end the Warriors' title run. “About a third of the way through the day that Saturday at states, I didn't think we were going to win. I just didn't think it was going to happen,” Boonsboro coach Becky Walter said. “But I should know by now not to count our girls out at any time.
