P-O games postponed

The Altoona/ Philipsburg-Osceola baseball game and the Philipsburg-Osceola/ Clearfield softball game were both postponed Wednesday due to a bomb threat at Philipsburg-Osceola.

Altoona coach Tom Smith said his team was on the bus preparing to head to Philipsburg when he got the news. Clearfield athletic secretary Jamie Kline confirmed the softball game was off due to the threats.

“We had a bomb threat at the school,” Philipsburg athletic director Lee Fisher said. “The school took precautionary measures, and they wouldn’t let anyone back into the school for safety reasons. The teams couldn’t get back in to get their equipment, so we had to postpone the games.”

According to state police in Philipsburg, the station was contacted by school officials stating that a written communication has been discovered indicating a bomb threat at the school. It was the second consecutive day a threat had been received.

The school was evacuated and a search of the school and grounds was done with dogs trained in explosive detection, but the search yielded negative results. The investigation is continuing.

The games have yet to be rescheduled.
