When the South Hagerstown cheering section yelled for defense, the Rebels' players were ready to answer. Showing a defense with superior quickness, hands going everywhere to disturb the opponent and a zone trap that left Linganore totally puzzled, No. 2 seed South Hagerstown romped to a 60-29 victory over the Lancers on Wednesday in the Maryland Class 3A West region semifinals. That sets up a meeting on Friday night at top-seed Damascus, which defeated Frederick on Wednesday 51-43, with the winner heading to UMBC for the state semifinals.

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.

Sometimes, dads have big feet. When traditions and heritage are in question, a father's footsteps may seem like size 22 EEE to a son. The imprint is huge and hard to fill. But then, there's the approach Nate Naylor takes when he travels in the same circles as his father Kevin. Nate follows the path Kevin has left behind, and rubs it out along the way. That's the kind of relationship the Naylors have. They are father and son, and colleagues who work in the same profession.

Just two of the 10 wrestlers representing North Hagerstown and South Hagerstown at the Maryland Class 4A-3A West region championships advanced to the semifinals on the first day of the tournament Friday at Sherwood High School. North's Gene Balcita advanced in the 138-pound class with a pin over Thomas Wooton's Garrett Ruderman in 2:26 in the quarterfinals. South's Marquil Holt advanced at 220 with a 4-0 decision over Dalonte Taylor of Northwood in the quarters. The shocker of Friday was the forfeit by North junior Brendon Colbert, who did not make weight.

There's an old saying that claims, “nobody is perfect.” Anybody associated with the South Hagerstown girls basketball team might disagree with that statement. The Rebels finished with a perfect MVAL Antietam record, wrapping up the regular season with a 67-41 victory over Smithsburg on Thursday night. “Going undefeated in the conference is an accomplishment,” South coach Nate Naylor said. “This is the first time that South has won (a) conference (title) since 1995.

The South Hagerstown and Williamsport girls basketball teams tried to meet objectives on Wednesday. The Rebels were out to get some life for the playoffs.

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.

A win over Walkersville for South Hagerstown's wrestling team might have seemed like a foregone conclusion on Wednesday, as the Lions forfeited six bouts. Even so, the Rebels sent their seniors out in style with a 48-22 victory on Senior Night. The Rebels (9-12) made it two straight over Walkersville, as they defeated the Lions 48-24 at the Rebel Duals on Jan. 19. All five of South's seniors wrestled, with three earning victories with pins. Starting at 182 pounds, Michael Rodriguez earned an upset pin over Walkersville's Brennan O'Connell, a winner of 22 bouts.
