North Hagerstown's girls basketball team used a 21-5 third-quarter rally and then held off a fourth-quarter comeback attempt by Williamsport for a 49-45 MVAL Antietam victory. The Hubs rallied from from a 23-18 halftime deficit to build a 39-28 lead before having to hold on to claim the win. “We played well for most of the game,” North Hagerstown coach Cyndi Miller said. “We had a lot of people step up. We just put our press in yesterday and we did a good job of executing it tonight.

The old adage, “it's not how you start, it's how you finish” held true Friday night. Williamsport had a paltry first half but a solid second half to come from behind and beat Brunswick 41-33 behind Sterling Christy's 19 points. The Wildcats' first half was, for lack of a better word, awful. They trailed by 10 not even three minutes into the game. They didn't register a single point until the 4:37 mark of the first quarter and their first field goal didn't come until there were 59 seconds left in the frame.

The Williamsport Wildcats baseball team came from out of nowhere in 2011. But that should have not been a major surprise, considering the new man on the block calling the shots. With a Williamsport baseball background, David Warrenfeltz took over the program and immediately put the Wildcats back on the map, sharing an MVAL Antietam Conference championship and reaching the Maryland Class 1A state semifinals. For his efforts, Warrenfeltz is the 2011 Herald-Mail Washington County Coach of the Year.

Scott Mowbray knew his 2010-11 Williamsport boys basketball team could be something special as far back as last July’s summer league. “I knew if the pieces fit the puzzle, we had the making (of a good team),” said Mowbray. With the pieces firmly in place, Williamsport stormed to the Maryland Class 1A West region title Saturday afternoon and stands two steps away from its first Maryland state championship since 1948. The Wildcats take on Pocomoke in the 1A semifinals Friday at 5 p.m. at the University of Maryland’s Comcast Center.

There's no doubt that John Bailey could have achieved a lot more with the Williamsport track and field program. But what he did achieve with the Wildcats was more than enough. Bailey, 47, recently resigned as Williamsport's coach after 25 years with the program. “I had an old coach who once said that if you ever started questioning whether it was time to step away, it probably was time,” he said. “I had some success, and now it's time for some other people to step in and see what they can do. “I bleed blue for Williamsport, and I wish them all the success.
