WILLIAMSPORT - Brooke Crawford took a left turn onto Memory Lane and returned to Williamsport High School on Wednesday. Back in the day, the first-year Tuscarora coach was known as Brooke Weimer, practically living in the gym while playing for the Wildcats' athletic teams. On this night, Crawford may have come home, but only to find out that house is currently Morgan Smith's residence. Smith scored a game-high 23 points, but played a vital part in Williamsport's total floor game as the Wildcats spread the offense around for a convincing 61-44 win over the Titans.

South Hagerstown boys basketball coach Kevin Naylor knew an early 11-0 lead would not be good enough against a team like Tuscarora. He was right. South Hagerstown jolted top-seeded Tuscarora, taking an 11-0 lead in the first 6:31 of Tuesday's game. But the Titans roared back to send jolts of their own through the Rebels, beating South 59-46 in the Maryland Class 3A West region semifinals. The Titans move on to the final Friday against Urbana, a 64-54 winner over Albert Einstein.

HAGERSTOWN -- South Hagerstown's fourth quarter was a dream for every player and coach who wants to win a game. For the Rebels, however, the fourth quarter followed three quarters in which they dug a mighty hole. South's dream period nearly erased most of a 23-point deficit Tuesday against Tuscarora, but the Rebels fell just short when Darico Provitt's 3-pointer was off target, giving the Titans a 64-61 win at South. "(Tuscarora) really wanted the game in the first three quarters and it showed," said South coach Kevin Naylor.

Tuscarora placed three players in double figures and used a dominating third quarter to glide past Williamsport 57-44 in  a girls basketball game Thursday night. The game was knotted at 30 at halftime, but the Titans (5-1) opened the third quarter with an 8-0 run to produce their largest lead to that point. “We wanted to add some more second-half pressure and force some turnovers,” Tuscarora coach Robbie Turner said. “We pride ourselves on defense. We're still inconsistent but we're getting better.” Tuscarora's defense stymied Williamsport's offensive efforts in the third, limiting the Wildcats to just four points over the eight-minute span.

Tuscarora School District property owners could face a tax increase to support the district's preliminary 2013-14 budget. On Monday, the school board approved a preliminary budget that calls for a three-fourths of a mill real estate tax increase. A mill represents $1 of every $1,000 assessed property value. The proposed increase would cost the average property owner $14, according to Business Administrator Eric Holtzman. The school board must pass a final budget by June 30. Even with the proposed tax increase, the school board would not be able to balance its revenues and expenditures without dipping into savings.
