South enjoys senior night with win vs. Clear Spring

By JACK HILL III / Staff Correspondent

South Hagerstown's girls basketball, suffering through a rough season, at least had a fine Senior Night.

The Rebels broke open a close game by outscoring Clear Spring 16-2 in the last six minutes of the third quarter to run away with a 63-33 victory in a Washington County high school girls basketball game.

"I would say this is the best game that my team has played all year," South Hagerstown coach Patty Leazier said. "For the first time all season, I think that we did more right things than wrong things. We didn't make too many turnovers and that gave us a lot of confidence. Even though we have been struggling, we have shown a lot of improvement."

Clear Spring (2-16) was still within striking distance of South (2-17), trailing 31-23 with six minutes left in the third quarter.


The Rebels then went on their run to ice the game. Senior center Brandy Price and junior forward Meghan Nelson scored six points each for South Hagerstown during that 16-2 spurt.

Price ended up with 18 rebounds and 15 points, while Nelson added 18 points and nine rebounds for the Rebels.
