After giving up three quick touchdowns to Thomas Johnson in the first quarter Friday night, the South Hagerstown defense buckled down a bit. The Rebels shut down TJ in the second quarter, forcing a punt, a fumble and an interception and giving the team a boost going into halftime. One run in the third quarter turned the tide back the way of the Patriots for good. Brandan Berney's third touchdown of the game was easily his most impressive, an 80-yard run in which he broke through or fought off five would-be tacklers, and the Patriots went on to defeat South 35-7 at School Stadium.

The Washington boys basketball entourage used a quick-in, quick-out philosophy on Thursday night. The Patriots arrived at St. Maria Goretti shortly before the scheduled tipoff and made quick work of Greencastle in a 79-45 decision to win the Mason Dixon Summer League title. Keldon Bell, a transfer from Jefferson, led the Patriots with 23 points, displaying an array of shots from around the floor, along with a nifty rebound putback on a slam dunk. Christian Coles added 16 points and Kendall Smith had 15 for Washington, which finished 15-9 last season.

FREDERICK, Md. -- Despite losing 33 players to graduation, the Thomas Johnson football team showed no signs of being in a rebuilding year Friday night. No, it seems the Patriots have simply reloaded. Thomas Johnson exercised its pedigree against North Hagerstown in the season opener, reaching the end zone eight times in a 56-7 drubbing of the Hubs to kick off the season. The Patriots were sharp in all phases, scoring touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams. "That's a (Maryland Class)

The Williamsport volleyball team is 10-0 for the first time since 2004, although they just about gave coach Emily Crabtree a heart attack getting there Thursday night. The Wildcats raced to big leads in the first two games on the way to a 2-0 lead over Thomas Johnson, then had to withstand the Patriots' comeback attempt, only pulling out a 25-21, 26-24, 20-25, 24-26, 15-11 victory when junior Stacey Christy took charge at the end of Game 5. Christy - who finished with 24 kills and eight blocks - had five kills and a block in the Game 5 race to 15. She had two kills and a block in a three-point sequence that got Williamsport to match point at 14-9, then put away the final kill three points later.

Area's No. 1 to face nation's No. 1 tonight By MARK KELLER / Staff Writer photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer ST. JAMES - From the St. James point-of-view, Thomas Johnson's gameplan was like a pitcher who tips his pitches. The batter knows what's coming at him. But even with that knowledge, the batter still has to hit the ball. The Saints knew every curveball the Patriots threw at them on Thursday, but TJ got enough of them by in a 68-60 win in the first round of the St. James Invitational Tournament.

"We're not used to going straight up," said Lemon of the vicious 800-yard climb that the runners had to tackle during mile one of the three-mile race. "We just wanted to take it up relaxed and go after people after that. " That's exactly what Lemon and teammate Marshall Lawrence did in the boys race.

Patriots remain right on schedule By DAN SPEARS dans@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - There is no RPI formula to decide seeds in the Maryland state basketball tournament. Winning streaks or level of competition aren't considered when the regionals are set up at the end of February. Thomas Johnson coach Tom Dickman doesn't care. Neither do his Patriots. For all they know, schedule strength is the most important ingredient in earning a trip to the state semifinals at Cole Field House.

Charles Hollinshead stood solemnly with his hand on his heart Saturday as a young man carried an American flag down Main Street at the Sharpsburg Memorial Day Parade. His wife, Martha, peered across the street to the home where she grew up, conjuring memories of parades from years gone by. Though she left Sharpsburg 51 years ago, Martha, 69, of Waynesboro, Pa., said she and Charles, 78, watch the parade each year across the street from her “home house.” Her brother and sister both used to play in the parade with the Boonsboro school band.

The Leopards outshot the Patriots 52-20 and, thanks to Travis Leopold, won 16 of 20 faceoffs. But Sponyoe made 23 saves and Thomas Johnson left Coach Carroll Reid Field with a stunning 8-7 victory. “He had a good night, and our shooting was to his liking,” Smithsburg coach Joe Dietrich said. “We were going low, and he was very good getting down quick.

South, the No. 4 seed, will return home Thursday for a 6:30 p.m. quarterfinal matchup against No. 5-seed Northwood. “We played a good first half of basketball,” South coach Kevin Naylor said after the Rebels beat Thomas Johnson for the second time this year.

Les Smith told Spring Mills Middle School students Friday that he enlisted in the West Virginia Air National Guard years after he wasn't drafted to fight in the Vietnam War. “I wanted the opportunity in some small way to perhaps pay back what had been given to me by others,”  Smith said at the school's annual Veterans Day assembly. Smith, who is a counselor at Martinsburg High School, along with Sharon Webb, a military flight nurse who works at the Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center, were the guest speakers for the hour-long program, which featured performances of patriotic music by the school's seventh- and eighth-grade chorus and individual recognition of area veterans who attended.
