However, the North Hagerstown Hubs had the final say on that matter on Tuesday night at South Hagerstown High School.

Katie Stamper, a six-foot junior hitter, stepped up to the service line and reeled off six straight service points to help the Hubs defeat the Rebels in four games, 17-15, 15-10, 12-15, 15-13.

"It is all about momentum," North Hagerstown coach Jaime Pryor said. "It depends on who has the most intensity and who has the momentum."

Stamper felt good about her team's victory.

"I'm just happy that we won," Stamper said. "I wanted to go home. South played good. Teamwork was the key to the victory. We really pulled it together at the end. I have improved a lot since my freshman year with my serving."

Stamper ended up with 11 kills, seven service points and seven digs for North Hagerstown (2-2), which won its second straight match. Nicole Morgan had 44 assists and 21 digs for the Hubs.

Lauren Anderson had 14 service points, while Kristina Nash came off of the bench to serve 13 points for the Hubs. Casey Breslin added 11 points and Michelle Levin had eight. Anderson collected 19 digs and 17 kills, Levin added 23 digs and 11 kills and Breslin had 10 kills.

"It's good to get a win against South," Pryor said. "We started out kind of rocky this year, but we've been improving with each match. We're still not at our peak yet."

Carrie Shank continued to serve 100 percent for this season by going 17-for-17 with eight points for South (2-3). Allison Wine went 18-for-19 and had 15 kills and six blocks.

Jill Watson had 15 kills, Cara Crouse was 23-for-24 with nine points and Angie Dietrich added 10 points and four aces for the Rebels.

"I think that as a team we need to fine-tune our skills," South Hagerstown coach Melissa Redding said. "North did a very good job of finding where our weaknesses were and hitting them consistently all night. North is a good team and we'll be looking forward to playing them again. I think that we did a lot of things well. We just made some small errors that hurt us at the end."
