The senior pitcher-third baseman led the Golden Bears (15-1) to a 4-0 week with strong pitching and fine work at the plate. Clark, who maintains a 3.15 grade-point average and has accepted a scholarship to play at South Carolina-Aiken, earned the save in Hammond's 8-4 win over River Hill on Thursday and was the winning pitcher as a starter the following day in a 14-6 victory over Mount Hebron. For the week, which also included wins against Howard and Wilde Lake, Clark went 6-for-12 with three homers, nine RBIs and three walks.

After 51/2 innings Tuesday night, No. 3 Hammond held a 4-2 edge over North Hagerstown. But eight runs in the bottom of the sixth gave the Hubs a commanding lead, propelling them to a 10-4 victory in the state Class 2A baseball semifinals at Arundel High. Things fell apart for the Golden Bears (21-3) after coach Michael Lerner pulled senior starting pitcher Danny Wissmann with one out and two men on in the sixth. Lerner said he and his coaching staff made the move because Wissmann was struggling to find the strike zone after throwing 122 pitches.

There's only one word describe this softball season: Upsets. Two more happened Monday, and the list of leaders has been trimmed in half. Hammond, led by Hannah Force, pulled off one upset, beating Reservoir, 6-1, and River Hill came from behind twice to upset Mt. Hebron in a slugfest, 11-8. Mt. Hebron, Reservoir, Howard and Glenelg had shared the league lead going into today's games. Both Howard and Glenelg won their games today to remain tied at the top, with two county losses each.

The last time that Oakland Mills met Hammond, center Greg Whittington didn't play. Unfortunately for host Hammond, he did Thursday night. The junior scored a game-high 25 points - including a clutch 3-pointer to send the game to overtime - as Oakland Mills defeated the Golden Bears, 64-61, in the Class 2A South regional semifinals. Sophomore James Turner led the Bears with 24 points. The Scorpions (17-5) will meet the winner of the Frederick Douglass-Gwynn Park game on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.
