kauffman@herald-mail.com CATONSVILLE, Md. - Once the battle lines were drawn Thursday night, one thing became crystal clear: Smithsburg's girls won't win their seventh straight Class 1A track championship without a fight. The Leopards did what they set out to do, but so did Poolesville and Rising Sun. The result is what guarantees to be a long, nailbiting Saturday for coach Buddy Orndorff, who predicted it all along. "It looks like a three-way dogfight," Orndorff said.

andrewm@herald-mail.com BALTIMORE - Tara Knable said she's fueled by failure. It's surprising the Smithsburg senior still has anything left in her tank. Knable captured her third straight Class 1A girls discus title with a winning throw of 122 feet, 7 inches Thursday, when the Maryland State Track & Field Championships kicked off at Morgan State University. "My freshman year, I didn't even make it to states," Knable said. "I still look back at that, and that's what pushes me. I knew then that I'd have to work hard.

HANCOCK - McConnellsburg made it a clean sweep on Wednesday. McConnellsburg won both the boys and the girls team championships in the 17th Annual Tri-State Track and Field Invitational at Hancock High School. --cont. from front page-- McConnellsburg used everyone it had to edge Chestnut Ridge, 117-106, for the boys title. "It was the depth again," McConnellsburg boys coach Don Gordon said. "We only won three events. It was the people that finished from second to fourth in several different events that won it for us. I was very impressed with how they came on at the end, because we were down by 20 points after six events to a very strong Chestnut Ridge team.

BOONSBORO - The first day of the Washington County track and field championships at Boonsboro High School threatened to be a wash as a sudden thunderstorm moved through the area just as the field events were ready to begin. And when lightning filled the sky, the athletes and coaches twice were hustled to the safety of the high school gym. Eventually, the storm passed and the athletes resumed the scheduled events which included finals in the girls and boys 800-meter relay, 3,200-meter relay and 3,200 meter run. In the field, finals were completed in the girls long jump, discus and high jump, while the boys finished the triple jump, shot put and pole vault.

SMITHSBURG -- Perhaps North Hagerstown freshman Beth Wagner was just being humble Saturday afternoon. Or maybe the Hubs' 4x100-meter relay team has become this good, this fast. Wagner anchored the event as North sprinted to victory in 51.96 seconds -- one of seven wins for the first-place Hubs at the Charas Heurich Invitational track and field meet. "That team is strong. It's fast," Wagner said of the Hubs' 4x100 squad. "I'm probably the slowest one. " Shuntia Hamilton took the lead in the opening leg of the race and the gap only got bigger as the baton passed to Renee Phillips, Katie Ritter and finally to Wagner.

Emily Ward didn't have to be at her best to be the best. A nasty cold that kept the North Hagerstown sophomore out of school Wednesday couldn't keep her down Thursday at the MVAL Piedmont Conference Track & Field Championships at Century High School. Ward won the 1,600-meter run in 5:25.95. “My legs felt OK, but it was harder than usual to breathe,” said Ward, who took the lead for good at the end of the first lap. “It hurt, but it wasn't awful.”  While she was well off her season-best time of 5:09.87, she gave herself plenty of breathing room against Liberty's Sarah Rinehart, who outkicked Westminster's Natalie Eastwood to place second in 5:30.76.
