Southern Columbia Closed So Students, Staff Can Attend State Championship

The Southern Columbia School District is closed today so that students and staff can attend the Tigers’ Double-A state championship game in Hershey. Southern is going for a 9th state title and its 3rd in the last 4 years. The school held a pep rally Thursday for the football team to get everyone pumped up. The Tigers play the Wilmington Greyhounds from the New Castle area in western Pennsylvania, the team they played in last year's state championship game and beat 48-0. The championship game is today at 1:00 p.m. at Hersheypark Stadium and you can hear all the action on Columbia County’s Sports Leader—WHLM—with the pregame show beginning at 12:30 p.m.
