HAGERSTOWN -- No baseball team in the Maryland Class 2A baseball tournament was able to stop South Hagerstown from reaching Saturday's state championship game. But a rule book violation did. The Rebels will not be playing in Saturday's 4:30 p.m. final against Kent Island after the team was cited for violating a National Baseball Federation rule limiting the number of innings a pitcher can throw in seven calendar days. "We didn't try to circumvent the rules," said Mike Tesla, South Hagerstown athletic director.

Sandra Volneck has faced many challenges over the years, but the hardest thing she ever had to do was look at her 15-year-old daughter's battered, lifeless body before closing the casket and burying her. “I wouldn't wish that on nobody. I'll never get over it,” Volneck said last week. “Never.” Twenty-nine years later and recovering from surgery for lung cancer, Volneck still does not know who killed her only child. Maryland State Police recovered Lorraine “Lori” Zimmerman's body from a wooded area outside Boonsboro in April 1984.

It worked for Adam Hockensmith, who won his run for president of the Student Government Association at South Hagerstown High School this year. Adam narrowly beat fellow senior Trang Phan for the position - and he did it by being sincere, upbeat, funny and confident, he says. "I just tried to be myself, to be positive, and not to have a fake niceness about me," says Adam, 16, of Hagerstown.
