Brookville drops tough final against Smethport

March 3, 2012

CLARION — Brookville has had just one thing on its mind since the beginning of the 2011-2012 season: To be three-peat District IX Class AA champions.

The Raiders stormed to a successful 18-6 season, worked their way into the final for the third consecutive year and gave themselves the opportunity to achieve that goal.

But Friday night at Clarion University, Brookville met its match in the Smethport Hubbers (18-5), and the Hubbers captured their first District IX Class AA championship in school history by taking down Brookville, 47-38.

The Zak Zone

I hate to admit this, but I used to be a little bit ashamed to call Punxsutawney my hometown.

I learned from an early age, as I traveled to roller hockey tournaments across the country, that telling people you were from Punxsutawney quickly drew the same question no matter where you found yourself visiting: "Hey, that's where that groundhog is from, right?"

Now, the embarrassment grew stronger as a teenager, after Bill Murray put Punxsutawney on the map for folks outside the quirky circle who had already heard of our little, local holiday.
