Carlton Davis has never been the kind of basketball player at South Hagerstown who is going to be an offensive headliner game after game. In his third varsity season - and his second in a starting role - the 5-foot-9 senior guard just goes out on a daily basis and does his job, which mainly consists of playing in-your-face defense. On Friday, Davis made an impact on the other side of the court, as he scored a career-high 17 points to lead the Rebels to a 92-41 victory over Catoctin in an MVAL Antietam Conference wipeout.

By the luck of the draw, the South Hagerstown girls basketball team received the eighth seed in the Maryland Class 3A West tournament, earning home-court advantage against ninth-seeded Tuscarora in a first-round matchup. Unfortunately for the home crowd, that only meant that it was able to see the Rebels be eliminated 75-43 on Saturday by the Titans. South (4-18) tried to make it a game early, trailing only 18-13 after one quarter. But Tuscarora started to roll, outscoring the Rebels 26-5 in the second quarter to make the result all but academic.

Being the guest to Saint James’ wrestling party Thursday also meant being the piñata. South Hagerstown found that out the hard way. The Saints repeatedly struck the Rebels and enjoyed the treats of a 69-9 victory in their final home match of the season. “Wow, I didn’t expect to get that kind of victory,” Saint James coach Aaron Williams said. “South placed higher than us at the Hub Cup, and I knew they had some tough guys. ... I would say that was our most impressive match this season.

When Greg Slick graduated from North Hagerstown in 1972, the Hubs were 0-5 all-time in their annual wrestling matches against city rival South Hagerstown. My, how the times have changed.

The Hubs improved to 26-6 against South under Slick, upping their all-time series lead to 32-13. “It’s not about me. It’s about these kids,” Slick said.

All C.J. Davis needs to do to know his role is take a look at a defense. If it’s man-to-man, the South Hagerstown point guard is a sidekick. If he sees a zone, he’s a gunslinger. For a brief moment, Davis came out with his guns a’blazin’ by hitting two key 3-pointers which helped the Rebels get some breathing room on Clear Spring on Friday and set the path for a 61-38 MVAL Antietam victory. With Clear Spring packed in a zone defense, Davis hit a 3 with 1:10 remaining in the first quarter to give South a 9-6 lead.

Nobody said following up a 2,000-yard rushing season was going to be easy for Isiaha Smith. And for two quarters Friday night, it looked like the going would be quite rough for South Hagerstown's senior running back. That all changed in the first minute of the second half. Smith broke off a 74-yard touchdown run on the second play from scrimmage after halftime and finished with 261 yards and five touchdowns as the Rebels opened the season with a 49-26 win over Century in a game slowed and marred by penalty flags.

Toby Peer knows it's a cliche, but he's not going to apologize for it. He believes it. “We're a one-day-at-a-time outfit,” Peer said of his South Hagerstown program. “We have one goal: To get better every day. Champions strive to get better every day. We focus on what we can control and don't worry about what we can't control.” If Peer did worry about things he couldn't control, he'd probably worry about the fact that he lost about 75 percent of the starters from a team that went 8-2 last season.

The school year is rapidly coming to a close and graduation is near, but Boonsboro senior Zach Poffenberger is not showing any signs of senioritis. He made his second start of the season Monday on Boonsboro's Senior Night and stifled South Hagerstown with a complete-game performance for a 2-1 MVAL Antietam victory. “I felt good today and had everything going for me,” said Poffenberger. “It's my first win, so it's a great finish.” Boonsboro coach Ronnie Stewart made mention of having a few sore arms and needed his starter to go deep into the game.
