Boonsboro coach Becky Walter never will forget the ride home from the Maryland state cross country meet last fall after her Warriors had swept the boys and girls Class 1A team titles. “Just the excitement on the bus,” she said. “We'd definitely like to repeat that feeling again.” Walter and the Warriors will get their chance to repeat the experience Monday at the state indoor track and field championships at Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex in Landover. The Boonsboro girls will try to win their second straight indoor state title, while the Boonsboro boys will aim to improve on last winter's second-place finish to Smithsburg.

Williamsport's boys basketball team survived a tough battle against Boonsboro, pulling out a 41-32 win on Friday night in an MVAL Antietam game. “It has been a very emotional evening,” Wildcats coach Scott Mowbray said. “To get out of here with our third win of the week, I am very pleased for our guys. It surely wasn't a piece of art, but we did what we needed to do to get the win. On a night when we didn't shoot the ball particularly well, our defense kept us in the game.” Senior forward Nick Johnson did the work on the inside for Williamsport (11-8, 9-4)

Whoever coined the phrase “slow and steady wins the race” never took turnovers into consideration. Boonsboro played a deliberate game, but 24 turnovers thwarted the Warriors' effort on Tuesday as South Hagerstown romped to a 67-45 MVAL Antietam victory. “Turnovers killed us,” said Warriors coach Skip Chambers. “We did not take care of the ball and too many of those turnovers wound up being layups for them.” After a relatively successful first quarter, a close game quickly slipped away from Boonsboro (5-10, 3-5)

The Boonsboro girls basketball team fell behind early and could not recover on Tuesday as North Carroll ran off with a 53-38 victory. “We weren't aggressive offensively in the first half,” Boonsboro coach Sam Connelly said. “We didn't attack the zone at all. I was impressed with the way that North Carroll moved the ball on offense. They made the extra pass.” The Panthers' defense was prepared for the Warriors. “You can't go man-to-man against Boonsboro, because they will eat you up alive,” North Carroll coach Shawn Minnier said.
