The Smethport High School Track team of 1955 sustained the tradition of great Hubber teams of the past. A fine all-around team led by Blaine O'Connor, Bob Lathrop, Jim Smith, Larry Moran, Glenn Cunningham, Fred Larson and Rodney Hauck gave the Hubbers a record-breaking fifth consecutive District 9 Class B Championship.
