The South Hagerstown girls basketball team has been led by a trio of junior stars this season. But on Senior Night in the Rebels' gym, it was fitting for Dejiah Johnson to shine. Johnson, the only senior on the floor for the Rebels, was their top scorer, dropping in a season-high 17 points and helping South to a 76-20 rout of Brunswick in an MVAL Antietam game Friday night. “Dejiah played a real nice game tonight, real nice for her to have that kind of game on Senior Night,” said South coach Nate Naylor.

It’s been said that timing is everything. The South Hagerstown softball team had timing issues all afternoon Thursday — from timing the opponent’s pitcher to untimely miscues and aggressiveness on the bases. And in the end, it was timely hitting on the part of Kennedy, which got a pair of bases-loaded singles in the top of the seventh inning to rally for a 12-11 win over the Rebels in the first round of the Maryland Class 3A West playoffs at South. “We didn’t have much emotion,” said South coach Angie Jeffries.

Darico Provitt was forced to do something he doesn’t have to too often. “It was weird. I don’t look up to anybody,” said South Hagerstown’s 6-foot-6 senior. On Monday, he was forced to tilt his chin up to look Clarksburg’s 6-10 Andre Walker in the eye. Provitt just made sure the Coyotes didn’t look down on him. Provitt set the tone by taking Clarksburg’s big man head-on while the rest of the top-seeded Rebels chopped the Coyotes down to size in a 70-52 victory on Monday in a Maryland Class 3A West quarterfinal.

It takes a lot to scare the dickens out of someone. Sporting events aren't like exorcisms. The devil will make fans do a lot of really questionable things, but in most cases, the games aren't all that life-changing. That certainly goes for South Hagerstown and Clear Spring's midseason boys basketball game on Wednesday. On the surface, there wasn't anything all that shocking about the Rebels' 68-51 victory, outside of a 16-1 advantage in the second quarter. To be truly honest, the outcome is about what most would have expected.

The South Hagerstown girls basketball team had its cake and ate it too Friday night, celebrating Senior Night with a 48-46 MVAL Antietam victory over visiting Brunswick. “We came out with more intensity,” South coach Amy Deeds said. “Since it was Senior Night, the girls came out wanting to win one for the seniors.” South (4-12, 3-9) and Brunswick (6-13, 4-9) were deadlocked 35-35 after three quarters. After a few lead changes in the fourth quarter, the Railroaders took the lead for the last time at 44-43 with 2:10 remaining when Amber Brown made a basket.

Now, South Hagerstown boys basketball coach Kevin Naylor can exhale. It was time to come up for air. The Rebels had just finished an NBA-style stretch in their schedule — four games in five days — and came away better for it. Still, it was time to call for oxygen — the fancy bottled kind on this occasion — as South finished its run with a 77-60 victory over Linganore on Tuesday in what could have been a trap game....

The South Hagerstown football team didn't waste time using one play to set up another in the first quarter of the Gridiron Classic against North Hagerstown on Saturday. Instead, the Rebels came out looking for the home run ball - and they connected on four straight. Brandon Hess threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another score, and Isiaha Smith scorched the Hubs for an 81-yard touchdown run to give South a 27-point cushion on its way to a 40-7 pasting of North in the 55th annual city showdown at North's Mike Callas Stadium.

North Hagerstown’s Aaron Stoner had nothing on the mound on Monday in the first inning against South Hagerstown. It’s what he did after that inning to rally his teammates to produce a 5-3 MVAL Antietam baseball victory. South Hagerstown hammered the Hubs’ right-hander for three runs on five hits for a 3-0 lead, but North took little steps in fighting back that culminated with Andrew Yacyk’s two-run double in the sixth inning. “I didn’t really have focus and concentration in the first inning,” said Stoner.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - For 25 years, the banner has flown by itself in the South Hagerstown gymnasium. The banner honors the Rebels 1974 boys basketball team, which capped a 26-0 season with a win in the state championship game at Cole Field House. On Friday, the Rebels were in Cole Field House for the fourth time since that storied 1974 squad took home the title, looking to give the quarter-century old banner some company in the rafters at South. But the Rebels' 1999 trip to the University of Maryland ended like their three previous trips as Clement Sorgho scored 23 points and gave Pikesville the lead for good on a 3-pointer with 3 minutes, 2 seconds left to lead the Panthers over South, 66-62.
