North Hagerstown juniors Delon Agee and Jim Eichelberger both agree: When the lights go dim in their gym this Saturday evening, the center mat is where they want to be. "You come out in the spotlight," Eichelberger said. "Everyone's watching you, and you just have to get it done. " Neither Eichelberger nor any of his teammates, however, know this from experience. None of this year's Hubs has ever wrestled in the championship finals of the Hub Cup - Washington County's largest and most prestigious annual tournament.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN Larry Hershman should have been on the football field Saturday night. He should have been roaming among high school marching bands that performed during the Harvest of Bands, critiquing their visual performance. Instead, he became a spectator when the competition was moved indoors because of rain. Since the bands had to perform in South Hagerstown High School's gymnasium, they were judged only on how they sounded, not on how they looked.

No one wants to get ahead of themselves, but area high school wrestling fans may truly have a headliner bout tonight in the 13th annual Hub Cup. North Hagerstown senior Seth Staley, a small school state champion, as a sophomore and Magruder senior Tony Howard, a two-time defending big school state champ, are on a collision course. First, each must win their semifinal bouts. That round begins this morning at 10. If both get through, they will meet in the 160-pound final. That round starts at 7. "I still have to win my semifinal," said Staley, who needed just 1:48 to pin in his first bout and 1:29 to pin in his quarterfinal bout Friday night to reach the semifinal round.

OPINION - Two old rivals in a new setting So this is what the old Tri-State League used to be? Wow. Wednesday night's boys Class 3A West semifinal between Thomas Johnson and North Hagerstown brought out the best in two conference champions, just like any good playoff game should. But the Patriots' 66-61 win left everybody gushing over the guys in the other uniforms - and with good reason. TJ's Jermaine Thomas scored the quietest 27 points in the history of basketball.

When it comes down to it, words are just like coupons. Most aren't worth the paper they are printed on, but if used properly, they make sense (cents). OK, that's a weak analogy. But words are really held in low regard. Remember, talk is cheap. If you give an opinion, you are only putting in your two cents' worth. Enough about my salary now. Actions speak louder than words. Ahhh, action is where it's at. In sports, action means everything. It's not what you say, it's what you do. That's why all the jawing and verbal jabs during most games is called "trash talking.
