Brooklawn wins 24th state Legion title

By CELESTE E. WHITTAKER • Courier-Post Staff • July 30, 2010

The Brookers won their 24th Senior American Legion state championship by smacking 18 hits, playing solid defense and defeating Gibbsboro 15-5 Thursday night at Mercer County Park.  Brooklawn's last state championship was in 2001, the same year the Brookers last won the national World Series.  One night after downing Gibbsboro 9-5 to force Thursday's winner-take-all scenario in the double-elimination tournament, Brooklawn used a three-run third inning and a four-run fourth to take command. With the win, Brooklawn moves onto the Mid-Atlantic Regional in West Lawn, Pa., while runner-up Gibbsboro plays in the Northeast Regional in Middletown, Conn.
