Go, Rebels

Is it too early in the morning to give out a good-old Rebel yell? Before I get accused of being a Southerner too quickly, let me clarify ... a South Hagerstown Rebel yell. Hold on to your coffee and let's head over to the high school and peek at what's happening in the halls and on the fields.


Some things never change and others are keeping up with the times.

Many of you can remember years ago when PTA meant covered-dish get-togethers with discussions about candy selling.

Now that PTA has progressed into the high school level, it has so much more to offer. There are scholarships to be awarded and activities and other wonderful and productive outcomes.

The PTA at South High meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the school's library. You at the very least need to join and support them financially. Think how incredible it would be to get even more involved. They are waiting on you.


Sports news

A high five to the South Hagerstown Rebel football team for their victory over Berkeley Springs this past Friday.

In the not so pleasant of weather, the Rebels took the win over Berkeley Springs. Come out tonight to see the Rebel's boy's soccer team play Boonsboro at 5:30 and root for the home team to bring home another win.

Not to be missed, the girl's soccer team will play Winter's Mill Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Lots of action on the field, and hopefully more checks in the win column.


Before you know it, the pinnacle of the fall, homecoming, will be here. On Friday Oct. 24, the South Hagers-town High School Alumni Association tailgate party will kick off the weekend's festivities.

Tailgating begins at 4 p.m. and continues throughout the evening. The game starts at 7 p.m. and Middletown will be the target. The dance is the following evening at the school at 7 and within the next several weeks, students can purchase their tickets at the school.

Helpful Web site

The school is simply abuzz with activities and happenings ... much more than I would ever be allowed space for, so I will pass this gem along to you.

There is a Web site ... a very informative and inclusive Web site; go to for more than you could possibly ever need to know about area schools.

I found this Web site to be absolutely amazing. There are home work helpers, translation links, schedules, and information, and so on. A very special thank you to, September, a super helpful young lady at South who just happened to be the one who answered the phone when I called to clarify a few things. Not only was she helpful, but also extraordinary polite. No wonder they named an entire month after her.
