Meterko, Baker headed to states

October 31, 2010

RIDGWAY — The Chucks may not have taken first place at this year's PIAA District IX Cross Country Championships in Ridgway Saturday afternoon, but the performances of A.J. Meterko and Dane Baker certainly qualify as a successful trip to districts.

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.

Schall wins second-straight title

October 31, 2010

RIDGWAY — To say that the Punxsutawney girls' varsity cross country team just missed out on winning its third-straight PIAA District IX Cross Country Championship would be a vast understatement.

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.

Punxsy's passing game, turnover-creating defense lead to win over Raiders

October 30, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If you can't stop the pass and turn the ball over three times in the second half, you won't win many games.

The Raiders found that out the hard way Friday night, as Punxsutawney turned a 9-6 halftime lead into a 37-6 drubbing of Brookville to not only win the Route 36 Gridiron Cup, but also claim the first-ever KSAC Large School Division championship.

Thompson, Smith gather for preview of new flags

October 30, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Friday at Gobbler’s Knob, U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson and state Rep. Sam Smith previewed new national and state flags to be presented at a dedication to local veterans Nov. 7.

“I certainly wanted to support the local organizations as they prepare to do an outreach program for our veterans,” Smith said. “Any time we can support those efforts and recognize people who have served our country, it’s a worthwhile cause.”

What’s up, Jack?

Jack-o’-lanterns are the face of Halloween, and that face is very conspicuous in the Timblin area where a local farming family lines hundreds of them along the road. David and Mary Dunkle grow several acres of pumpkins each year, and the unsold pumpkins are carved by area residents. (Photo submitted)
