Tim Jacobson is getting comfortable in his role as a hero. Two days after the South Hagerstown catcher hit a three-run double to tie the game in an eventual 5-4 victory over Century in Saturday's Maryland Class 2A West semifinals, Jacobson was at it again. His two-run home run in the fifth inning breathed new life into the Rebels, and his double in the sixth led to the winning run as South rallied from a 5-0 deficit to stun Liberty 6-5 in Monday's 2A West final. "It just proves one thing can do it for a team," said Jacobson, referring to his homer that cut the lead to 5-2 and, more importantly, energized what had been a lifeless Rebels dugout.

"This team has a lot of speed," said Smithsburg coach Bill Fowkes. "We beat out a number of infield hits, or at least made them close. It was big to get to turn those into hits and get off to a good start.

Washington County sent two public schools to the Maryland state tournament and another private school nearly won a state title. Is there the potential for a repeat in 2009? Last season, South Hagerstown and Clear Spring reached the state semifinals and it appears both teams have a respectable chance to return. The Rebels, coming off a 17-4 season with an MVAL Piedmont conference title, lost pitchers Brandon Knight and Tim Leather to graduation. Knight went 6-0 with two saves and a 1.68 earned run average while Leather was 8-0 with one save and a 1.85 ERA. Clear Spring went 18-4 and shared the Antietam title with Catoctin.
