Legion Post #6 to Host 2014 Regional Tournament

State Director Ford “Skip” Carnes, Jr. has approved Clearfield Post #6 to serve as host for the 2014 Region 7 Tournament. Regional Director Michael Hogan recently notified Coach Sid Lansberry of the announcement. As the host team, the Clearfield Chiefs will automatically qualify for the tournament, which will be held July 19th-23rd at the Lawrence Township Recreation Park.

Eight American Legion Senior teams will compete for a spot in the Pennsylvania State Tournament. Region 7 is composed of 4 leagues (Cambria County, Indiana County, Central Penn, and Westmoreland County). Clearfield is a member of the Central Penn League along with Altoona, State College, Bellefonte, Clarence, Mifflin County, Penns Valley, Hollidaysburg, Philipsburg, Beech Creek, and Dubois. Participation in the Regionals provides a good exposure opportunity because it usually draws the interest of many college coaches.
