Williamsport High School is a public high school in Williamsport, Washington County, Maryland, United States.

Baseball Team[edit]

The school's baseball team, and its coach David Warrenfeltz, were the subject of a 2012 Sports Illustrated article. In a story written by Chris Ballard, Warrenfeltz discussed events affecting the team in early 2012 when the team’s star pitcher and his prom date were killed in an automobile accident.[3] Despite the loss, the team rallied to win the Maryland state high school championship. Tragically, Warrenfeltz was also a close friend and teammate of former Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart who was killed in an automobile accident in 2009. Both Warrenfeltz and Adenhart graduated from Williamsport High School.[4]
