Sometimes, things just happen for a reason. Call it destiny or coincidence, but it’s amazing how certain events seem to coincide with other recent happenings. In a way, South Hagerstown’s trip to the Maryland Class 3A boys basketball state tournament falls into that category. It wasn’t planned this way, yet it is kind of fitting that the Rebels returned to College Park just months after the death of Nick Scallion, the man who led the Rebels to their first (and only)

South Hagerstown's performance on the basketball floor Tuesday night started out very well, but everything the Rebels worked for nearly turned ugly in the fourth quarter. The Rebels nearly squandered all of a 17-point lead, but managed to fend off charging Thomas Johnson 57-50 in the first round of the Maryland Class 3A West region playoffs. 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.

For as much talking as she did with her performance, Tayana Stewart had little to say after she had poured in 36 points to lead South Hagerstown to a 78-67 victory over Tuscarora's girls on Monday night. “We just worked hard and I'm proud of my team,” said the 5-foot-8 sophomore, who made her varsity debut in splashing style for the Rebels. Stewart did it from behind the arc, with an array of medium jumpers and in the paint. She hit 13 of 26 shots, including 6 of 13 from 3-point land, including 19 points in the first half to help the Rebels build a 43-27 advantage.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Boonsboro and South Hagerstown baseball teams are living by similar mottos. "You take it any way you can get it," South coach Ralph Stottlemyer said. Easily isn't one of those ways, though. The two inexperienced teams battled through walks and tedious innings on Wednesday as the Rebels held on for a 10-7 victory ... this time. Boonsboro allowed South (7-6, 4-4) to build a 10-1 lead after four innings. But the Rebels allowed the Warriors to escape the brink of the 10-run rule with a five-run fifth, capped by a pinch-hit grand slam by Zach Poffenberger.

The South Hagerstown baseball team got tagged with two losses at home Friday. The Rebels were first defeated 9-7 in their regularly scheduled, non-conference game against the Linganore Lancers. South then lost the completion of a suspended MVAL Antietam baseball game to the Catoctin Cougars 9-8 in 11 innings. The Rebels (6-10, 3-9) started the season with a 3-0 record, but since then have gone 3-10. “We just didn’t make the plays when we had to,” South coach Ralph Stottlemyer said.

South Hagerstown football coach Toby Peer didn't need to be pinched. What he had just seen was real. His Rebels scored a 59-7 victory over Berkeley Spring on Friday in South's season opener. But Peer was the first to admit it was like magic because what fans saw wasn't actually what they got. “You look at the score of this game,” Peer said. “You see the 59-7 score and you think it was an offensive game. For us, the defense and special teams set it all up. We got scores from all three phases of the game today.” The Rebels forced turnovers on Berkeley Springs' first four possessions - two fumbles and two interceptions - to set up their first four scores as they took a 26-0 lead.

The Smithsburg baseball team withstood a late rally by South Hagerstown to pick up an 11-10 MVAL Antietam victory Monday. The Leopards built a 9-2 lead in the first four innings and then did just enough to hold off the Rebels. “It’s good to see us finally catch some breaks,” Smithsburg coach Trey Cobb said. “It’s good to see our players battling hard and then getting rewarded for it. With our effort and attitude, we deserved to win.” Senior shortstop Ryne Willard, who is batting over .500 for Smithsburg, had another good day at the plate on Monday with two hits and three RBIs.

Don't think for a moment that South Hagerstown's season-opening 72-57 girls basketball victory over Winters Mill on Wednesday was an easy romp through the park. The Rebels fought back from an early 10-point deficit, nearly blew an eight-point lead of their own in the third quarter, then dominated the Falcons in the fourth. “The first game, everyone was so ready, over-amped,” South coach Nate Naylor said. “We just wanted to come out and put the ball in the basket instead of what we really do best.” Once the Rebels got into the flow of the game, their best on Wednesday was their defense, forcing Winters Mill into 36 turnovers.

Strange things make South Hagerstown boys basketball coach Kevin Naylor happy. The Rebels have athleticism, speed, quickness and move aggressively to the hoop. And when Boonsboro took the floor on Monday, Naylor got a big smile on his face. “When they came out in a zone, I was happy,” Naylor said. “We are quick, but we seem to play better against zones than we do against man defense.” The Rebels were able to do it all against the Warriors with mid-range jumpers and breakaway baskets off turnovers to collect a 78-32 MVAL Antietam victory.
