There's no doubting Thomas as TJ stuns Paint Branch By DAN SPEARS dans@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - If there was any team to break the poker face of Thomas Johnson point guard Jermaine Thomas, surely it would be Paint Branch. The top seed in Class 3A West, the Panthers were the defending state champion, had won 32 straight games, had all-everything forward Jamaal Wise, had the speed and height to give Thomas and the Patriots fits. And with 7 minutes and 17 seconds to go in the game, Thomas threw his arms into the air and finally did crack - into a broad smile.

North's number up in wrestling duals All season long, the North Hagerstown wrestling team has stacked the deck early on its opponents. Wednesday night at the Class 3A/4A West regional dual meet championships, the Hubs ran into a team that had too many aces to close the deal. North, who earlier this season finished behind Damascus and Paint Branch in the Hub Cup, got its revenge on the Hornets with a 42-18 semifinal victory, but grudgingly had to give way to the Panthers, 34-21.

With 18 teams and all their fans packed into the North Hagerstown gymnasium this weekend, the 26th annual Hub Cup tournament might be a little overwhelming for a lot of wrestlers. Maintaining composure seems to be a key to success. “I just go with the flow, pretty much,” said Williamsport's Nick Miller, who advanced to Saturday's semifinals in the 106-pound weight class with a quick pin in Friday evening's quarterfinals. “I just wrestle, that's about it. It doesn't really bother me who the kids are.” It didn't seem to bother Williamsport teammate Sinjin Shoop that he had to wrestle second-seeded Ryan Sachs of Magruder in the quarterfinals at 138. “I didn't even know he was seeded second,” Shoop said after his 7-2 win over Sachs.

andrewm@herald-mail.com It would probably be a good idea to arrive early to the 16th annual Hub Cup Invitational today at North Hagerstown High School. While the championship finals aren't scheduled to begin until 7:30 p.m., this morning's opening action will be well worth watching. Day two of the Hub Cup kicks off with the championship semifinals at 10:30 a.m., and the little guys starting things off are the big attraction. All four of the 105-pound bracket's undefeated wrestlers went 2-0 Friday to advance to the semis, where the feature showdown pits Walkersville's Gleason Sweeney (17-0)

andrewm@herald-mail.com Sure, Walkersville recently won the prestigious Damascus Tournament, is 9-0 in dual meets and currently ranked as the state's No. 8 tourney team by the Maryland State Wrestling Association. Paint Branch is 12th on the same rankings list and Quince Orchard is 13th. All three powers will be on hand this weekend at North Hagerstown for the 16th annual Hub Cup Invitational - which begins today at 5 p.m. - and are, obviously, the apparent favorites.

Somebody somewhere in the Tri-State finally got his wish. OK, maybe it's a lot of somebodies all over the Tri-State, but it's the thought that counts. And by the way, how fitting that my final column in The Herald-Mail appears on Independence Day. Yes, I'm leaving. I have a new job with the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle and my last day at The Herald-Mail is July 13. Sorry that it's not Sheetz or McDonald's or another fast-food joint, as some of you so desperately have wanted for me in the past, but that's the way life goes.
