The Boonsboro Warriors remained undefeated Friday night as they thrashed mistake-prone Hedgesville, 47-14. Penalties, turnovers, errant snaps and just about everything else went wrong for Hedgesville, and Boonsboro gladly took advantage of the Eagles' mishaps to secure a Homecoming victory. It wasn't just Hedgesville's miscues that aided Boonsboro (7-0) - the Warriors created a lot of opportunities for themselves. Caleb Jardeleza returned the opening kickoff 72 yards to the Hedgesville 18-yard line and J.T. Rice capped off the two-play drive with a 10-yard touchdown run - his first of two - and followed it with an extra point to give the Warriors a 7-0 lead.

There was one redeeming factor about Wednesday’s game against North Carroll for Boonsboro coach Skip Chambers. The basketball stayed dry. “We couldn’t drop it into the ocean today,” Chambers said bluntly. The Warriors had a hard time dropping it in the basket, too. Boonsboro struggled mightily on offense — managing nine baskets, including three in the first half — in a 53-32 loss that made Senior Night less than memorable. Boonsboro (4-17)

No matter how it’s getting done, Boonsboro’s baseball team is enjoying the game in recent days. “They’re high enough some might go back to the high school tonight and have a pep rally,” said Boonsboro coach Ben Leonard after his Warriors defeated Williamsport 16-11 in an MVAL Antietam contest. Forgetting about an 11-3 pasting administered by Williamsport on March 28, the Warriors (4-5, 3-4) took their good ol’ time in putting eight runs on the scoreboard out of the gate.

Clear Spring brought its bats loaded with extra bases to Boonsboro on Friday in the first round of the Maryland Class 1A West baseball playoffs. The Blazers unloaded three home runs, three doubles and a triple on the way to a 12-8 victory over Boonsboro, gaining a spot in Monday’s quarterfinals on the road at No. 1-seed Mountain Ridge. “We’re a young team with seven sophomores so we needed to get a playoff win like this,” said coach Mark Shives. “Right now, we’re still the defending region champs until someone beats us.” Boonsboro pitching aided the Blazers with six walks and its defense helped out with four errors.

Standing side by side, Tyler Dabbs and Ian Fisher looked like Mutt and Jeff. But against the Boonsboro basketball team, they played more like David and Goliath. After Fisher used his size and strength inside for eight first-quarter points, Dabbs followed with five straight 3-point missiles as Brunswick clubbed the Warriors 61-35 in an MVAL Antietam contest Thursday night. Dabbs, the sixth man for Brunswick (5-5, 2-3), which was missing two starters due to illness, scored all of his game-high 17 points within a five-minute span in the second period, propelling a 21-10 Railroaders run to put the game out of reach early.

North Hagerstown 6-foot-4 senior center Jake Bachtell took control inside against Boonsboro on Tuesday night, collecting 16 points and seven rebounds in the Hubs’ convincing 68-23 MVAL Antietam boys basketball win over the visiting Warriors. “It was just there,” Bachtell said. “The teammates just kept looking for me and they found me. I just kept scoring.” North (5-3, 3-1) recovered well from a slow start against Boonsboro (3-5, 0-4). “We started off rough,” Bachtell said.

It’s said that patience is a virtue. The Boonsboro boys basketball team made it seem more like a vice Friday night. Boonsboro controlled the tempo with abundant ball movement in the halfcourt, but the Warriors’ execution lacked and Brunswick took advantage as the Railroaders doubled up Boonsboro 52-26 in a Maryland Class 1A West Region East Sectional quarterfinal. Boonsboro (4-19) slowed the game down — so much so that the Warriors attempted just 25 shots — but 26 turnovers allowed Brunswick to play in transition and create several easy baskets.

At most high school tennis dual meets, fair or unfair, the doubles matches are considered the undercard. Not so for Boonsboro’s girls this season. The Warriors’ three doubles teams were worthy of main-event status and led Boonsboro to a 16-1 record, including a 13-1 mark that earned the MVAL Antietam title. Boonsboro’s teams combined to win 49 of 50 matches and 98 of 104 sets. The No. 1 team of seniors Alice D’Alauro and Erin Scally went 17-0 and won 34 of 37 sets. The No. 2 team of juniors Ashlyn Hawbaker and Sarah Colgan also finished 17-0 and did it without dropping a set (34-0)

SMITHSBURG -- If there was no limit to the number of events in which an athlete could compete in a track and field meet, the sky might be the limit for the Boonsboro boys team. But even with the four-event maximum, the Coby Gussio-led Warriors are still pretty good. Gussio, a multitalented junior, won both the 100-meter dash (11.07 seconds) and long jump (21 feet, 1/4 inch) at the annual Heurich Invitational on Saturday. He also joined the exclusive sub-50 club with his second-place finish in the 400 (49.51)

Senior forward Owen Marx scored twice in the first six minutes to get Williamsport's boys soccer team on track for a 3-1 win over South Hagerstown in the first semifinal of the Washington County Tournament on Saturday at School Stadium. The Wildcats (2-0) will face Boonsboro on Sept. 21 in the championship game at Mike Callas Stadium. “Our first goal was to basically start out strong during the first 10 minutes,” Marx said. “That was pretty much everybody's plan. I was just part of the plan.

Ethan Foster got the first call offensively from scrimmage for Boonsboro to begin the 2013 season. He also scored the first touchdown in thrilling fashion. Foster went up the middle for a 93-yard touchdown run and it helped push the Warriors to a 25-15 victory over Walkersville. Welcome to 2A! Walkersville took the opening drive at its own 32 and reached the Boonsboro 7 before stalling on downs. With the change of possession, it was Boonsboro's turn and Foster got the call on what head coach Clayton Anders said afterward: “It's our No. 1 nuts and bolts play.” “That score was big momentum for us,” Anders said.

Last year, Boonsboro became the first cross country program in Washington County to win both girls and boys team titles at the Maryland state meet in the same season, accomplishing the feat in Class 1A. Now, beginning this school year, the Warriors are in 2A. “Last year the goal was to win states, and that's still the goal,” Boonsboro coach Becky Walter said. “Obviously we're in 2A and the competition is a lot better, just more depth all around. But these kids are working hard for it. They want to prove that they didn't just win in 1A, but that they can win in 2A as well.” While the Boonsboro girls have lost three of their top-five scorers from last year's team to graduation, including individual state champion Sarah Zielinski, they have a pair of big-time additions to join top returnees Kortney Cunningham, a senior, and Ella Hawkins, a junior, at the front of the pack.

A group working with the Boonsboro Athletic Boosters is looking into the possibility of installing artificial turf at Boonsboro High School's football field, Washington County Public Schools officials said. Boonsboro High and school system officials, as well as some community members, were expected to meet Wednesday to begin discussing whether the project would be feasible and if the school system would support it, officials said. In researching different artificial turf companies, Boonsboro High Head Football Coach Clayton Anders said he received an estimate for the entire project - grading, drainage and artificial turf - from FieldTurf that was a little more than $800,000.

The Boonsboro girls' Class 1A team title defense seemed to be in doubt during the final day of the Maryland State Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore. 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.

When Clear Spring's Dylan Stouffer heads to the plate, he has two voices in his ear. One is his own, setting up his hitting routine. The other is coach Mark Shives, yelling instructions from the third-base coaching box.
