What are the chances that a city that's more like a town could produce two scholastic basketball players worthy of inclusion on any year's 25-man McDonald's All-American Team? This year, they were splendid. Rodney Monroe, a 6-3 guard headed for North Carolina State, was born in Hagerstown, Md., a city of 33,000 located 68 miles west-northwest of Baltimore, and continues to live there. Dennis Scott, a 6-6 forward bound for Georgia Tech, also was born in Hagerstown. He continues to spend a lot of time there.

The magical ride for the Devon Strafford all-stars ended last night, one win shy of the Little League World Series. Devon's 8-3 loss to an undefeated team from Hagerstown, Md., ended a tremendous season that included the squad's first state championship. A win would have sent Devon to take on the world's best in Williamsport, Pa., as the Mid-Atlantic Regional champion. Devon found itself in an uphill battle from the opening pitch, as a solo home run by Andrew Yacyk put Hagerstown on top. Devon pitcher Kyle Stefanic looked as though he was going to elude a second-inning jam unscathed, but he hung a curveball up in the strike zone and was touched for a grand slam by Zane Schreiber, giving Hagerstown a commanding 6-0 lead after two frames.
