Clarion tops Brookville during snowy game

March 30, 2011

CLARION — When the infielders for Brookville and Clarion's softball teams raced toward ground balls Wednesday afternoon at Clarion, they were forced to contend with Mother Nature, as well as their opponents.

The Lady Bobcats (3-0) overcame the conditions and used a strong outing from starting pitcher from Krysta Fuller to beat the Lady Raiders, 12-0.
