Scott Mowbray and Ryan Grabill chatted during the Williamsport-Clear Spring junior varsity boys basketball game Friday, then shook hands and went to opposite ends of the gym before the varsity game. It was the first meeting of the two varsity coaches after Grabill, who served for five years as Williamsport’s junior varsity coach under Mowbray, took over as head basketball coach at Clear Spring this season. “Sort of the same career path,” said Grabill. “Scott was at Williamsport under Kevin Murphy and then left to come to Clear Spring and it’s the same route for me.” Grabill said working under Mowbray helped prepare him for his first stint as a head coach.

HAGERSTOWN tiffanya@herald-mail.com Few could distinguish a chest pass from a bounce pass during the teams' first few practices. And these were the 23 girls who made the varsity and junior varsity teams during the November tryouts. "Out of all of you, how many of you had played on a basketball team before you joined?" coach Dan Scally asked during a junior varsity practice. Only three of the nine girls at practice that day raised their hands. The players, who belong to E. Russell Hicks Middle School's first girls basketball squad, have greatly improved since the season started.

andrewm@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Dave Mahaffey said he doesn't have a magic wand. Maybe he needed one to stay on as Waynesboro Area Senior High School's head varsity football coach. Mahaffey, 37, of Waynesboro, turned in his letter of resignation last Friday. It was officially accepted by the Waynesboro School Board at its meeting Tuesday night. "It's no surprise," said Mahaffey, who was 4-26 in his three seasons with the Indians. "I'm the one who made up my mind to do it. " However, Mahaffey also said he was facing a lot of pressure from the community to produce a winning football team, something Waynesboro hasn't had in nearly a decade.

Week of Nov. 11, 1957 Sunshine and a glass jug apparently combined to cause a freak fire in the 600 block of Summit Avenue at about 10:45 this morning. The fire began among some old rags on the porch of the L.V. Crist apartment building at the corner of Summit and Garlinger Avenues. A glass jug was located nearby and firemen theorized that it acted as a lens, concentrating the sun's rays as they passed through the jug and concentrating them on the rags. The resulting blaze was enough to scorch the porch railing and other woodwork, but no serious damage resulted.

A huge home crowd geared up Boonsboro's boys lacrosse team for its inaugural varsity game against Smithsburg on Thursday night. The Warriors responded by jumping out to a 4-1 lead in the first half, but couldn't keep up with the Leopards as they dropped a 15-6 decision in the season opener for both teams. Even a loss couldn't wipe the smile from coach Phil Aversa's face. “The guys came to play in the first half and it was exciting to watch them play at that level, but Smithsburg made its adjustments,” Aversa said.

GIRLS BASKETBALL In recent years, Boonsboro has played Catoctin tough, even in the years that the Cougars were a very, very good 1A team, not to say they aren't creditable this season. A matchup loomed Friday night between two potential MVAL Antietam Conference unbeatens - South Hagerstown and Catoctin - until the Warriors gladly ruined that. Boonsboro rallied from a seven-point deficit after three quarters to hand Catoctin (6-3, 3-1 Antietam) its first loss while improving to 2-1 in the Antietam and 4-3 overall.

The Boonsboro girls lacrosse team walked off with its first varsity win Thursday evening in the season opener with Smithsburg. With the game tied 10-10, Boonsboro's Tori Poffenberger netted the game-winning goal with 24.9 seconds remaining to secure the Warriors' first-ever varsity win with an 11-10 victory. “We started as a club team in 2009,” Boonsboro coach Susan Funke said. “We were able to raise the money and start a varsity program this year. But I still only have one girl on the team who played youth lacrosse, so everyone is still learning.” Poffenberger's game-winning goal capped a four-goal performance, while teammates Kiana Miller and Natalie Young each scored two goals for the Warriors.

The St. Maria Goretti boys lacrosse team opened its first season as a varsity sport the hard way on Wednesday. Goretti had a rough start and couldn't complete a comeback in a 10-4 loss to St. John's Catholic Prep. “Michael (Fairley) is a quality goalie. He just started slow,” said Goretti coach Keith Reitenbach. “But he made some second-half saves that kept our heads up.” Whether it was first-game jitters, rust or a combination of both, Goretti just couldn't pull it together in the first half.

Prep Volleyball Smithsburg volleyball coach Rachel Brashear has found the perfect attacking replacement for senior Katie Sprecher's injured right arm: Sprecher's healthy left arm. Sprecher was a Herald-Mail All-County First Team outside hitter last year using her potent right arm. She's also a two-time All-County First Team honoree in girls basketball, and she often goes to her left hand on post moves. Thanks to a little motherly advice -- Brashear's mother is Smithsburg athletic director Teresa Bachtell -- Sprecher is making an impact in the front row again.
