COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Hagerstown Community College volleyball team fell to Illinois Central 30-15, 30-23, 30-25 in the quarterfinal round of the NJCAA Division II national tournament. "We are the first Region XX team that's ever won a game or a match and has ever made it to the quarterfinals," Hawks coach Beth Domenico said. "The girls did great today. I think they played each point, each game, instead of looking ahead. They made it a lot further than what people thought they were going to. " Until this season, the Hawks had made it to the tournament 11 out of the last 15 years without a single game victory.

Boonsboro's Abby Duncan and Smithsburg's Chad Greene had almost identically perfect days at Saturday's Maryland Class 1A West Indoor Track & Field Championships at the HCC athletic complex. Duncan led the Warriors girls to a resounding team victory by winning the 55 and 300 dashes and anchoring Boonsboro's title-winning 4x200 and 4x400 relays. Greene pulled off the exact same 4-for-4 performance for Smithsburg's boys - though he ran the second leg of the 4x200 and the third leg of the 4x400 - as the Leopards also won a team championship.
