PREP TRACK & FIELD
WILLIAMSPORT — The Boonsboro girls and Williamsport boys won the team titles as the Washington County championships concluded Friday.
Seventeen of the 18 events were held Thursday, but due to strong winds, the pole vault competition was postponed to Friday.
While the Williamsport boys clinched their title Thursday, the Boonsboro girls still had work to do to hold off North Hagerstown.
While North’s Emily Smith won the girls pole vault at 8 feet, 6 inches, it wasn’t enough to overtake the Warriors, who had three placewinners in the event as they wrapped up their second straight outdoor county championship.
Smithsburg’s Emma Gerhold was the runner-up at 8-6, while Boonsboro’s Emily Moats placed third (8-0).
Nick Berchock won the boys pole vault with a jump of 12 feet for champion Williamsport. Smithsburg’s Nick Porter was second (11-6) and Williamsport’s Brandon Kline was third (11-0).
Final boys team scores: 1. Williamsport 203; 2. South Hagerstown 131.5; 3. Boonsboro 118; 4. Smithsburg 104; 5. North Hagerstown 69.5; 6. Hancock 34.5; 7. Clear Spring 20.5.
