PUNXSUTAWNEY — Students at Punxsutawney Area High School passed a very important test Friday, and it had nothing to do with their future plans, as a seat belt safety check was held by Punxsutawney Borough Police while students began head home.

Meterko was strong, finishing second overall while Baker took fourth to qualify for the state championships next weekend in Hershey.

Meterko's time of 17:27 made him district runner-up, while Baker clocked in with a time of 17:56.

The Lady Chucks finished in a tie with Bradford with 30 points, but the championship went the way of the Lady Owls as Bradford's sixth runner finished four places ahead of Punxsy's sixth runner, giving Bradford the edge.

Chucks primed for first-ever playoff victory

October 31, 2010

BROCKWAY – Two boys’ soccer squads that were destined to meet again will face off with a District IX Class AA Final berth on the line for the second-straight season at 7 p.m. tonight in Brockway.

The Punxsy Chucks (14-3-1), who were eliminated by St. Marys in last year’s playoffs in a shootout, enter tonight’s game coming off their best regular season in school history. The St. Marys Flying Dutchmen (13-3-2) have just as impressive of a 2010 resume, and they’re in search of advancing to yet another district championship game.
