The barges long ago stopped plying the 180-mile Chesapeake & Ohio Canal between Georgetown and Cumberland, Md. But along its path, glimpses of the past remain - from lock houses and aqueducts to dams and pump houses. If these old structures could talk, they might tell of an era when the canal took its place in American history. During the 18th and early 19th centuries, boats carried everything from coal and grain to cloth and timber. But transportation wasn't its only feat.

First it was football, then boys basketball and now it's girls basketball - Williamsport is in the market for another head coach. Veteran Chris Malott, with nine seasons under his belt as the headmaster of the Wildcats girls basketball program, has decided to step down. “I pulled the plug, it's time to do it,” Malott said. “After 26 years, it's time. I love coaching the kids at game time, but I hate the bus trips, especially to Carroll County.” Malott has never been overly concerned about wins and losses.

During his state-champion days at Williamsport High School, Michael Lilley logged thousands of training miles on the C&O Canal Towpath. He returned to the towpath Saturday morning, and left as a champion again. Lilley, 22, won the 32nd annual Gary Brown Memorial C&O Canal Five Mile Run in 25 minutes and 26 seconds. “It's really awesome for me to be able to win this race on my home turf that I grew up running on,” said Lilley, who recently graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., where he competed for the NCAA Division I Mountaineers.
