If Nicole Morgan is right, Wednesday night was special in more ways than one for the North Hagerstown volleyball team.
Not only did the Hubs defeat archrival South Hagerstown, 12-15, 15-10, 15-10, 15-12 to remain in position to claim the Monocacy Athletic League championship, but, according to Morgan, the team began playing as a unit after the first-game loss.

And it may have all hinged on a seldom-heard, but non-controversial call by the officials late in Game 2.
Nursing a 10-8 lead, the Rebels (5-8, 3-4) were called for a backside attack, and instead of a side-out for South, the Hubs (8-2, 4-1) pulled to within 10-9, and scored the next six points for the come-from-behind victory.
