The North Hagerstown girls basketball team gave coach Diane Telemko her Christmas present two days early.
It was the Hubs' first victory of the season, wrapped up with a nice big bow.

The Hubs shook off scrappy Clear Spring to pull out a 46-40 win on Wednesday night in a Washington County high school girls basketball game.
"It feels wonderful to get our first win of the season," Telemko said. "It is a great Christmas present. We also played better as a team. We were able to hit the open person. We have to learn that we have to go hard down the court every time on defense. We cannot rest on defense."
Clear Spring led 21-19 midway through the third quarter. But the Hubs ran off an 11-4 flurry during the final four minutes of the quarter to take the lead for good at 30-25. Naomi Mason and Autumn Parson had four points each in the spurt for North Hagerstown.
