Hoohuli's 46 leads St. Marys past Punxsy

January 18, 2011

ST. MARYS — St. Marys senior guard Kayla Hoohuli once again proved why she could go down as one of the best female basketball players in District IX history Monday night, scoring 46 points during the Lady Dutch's 57-48 victory over Punxsutawney.

Punxsy threw everything it had at Hoohuli, but she still scored all but 11 of her team's points while helping St. Marys dispatch a 14-5 deficit. Hoohuli was strongest down the stretch, going 8-of-10 from the free-throw line while providing her team with a 17-13 final quarter to extend upon a 40-35 lead after three.

Brookville downs Redbank

January 18, 2011

BROOKVILLE — It was a tale of two halves Monday in Brookville, as the Lady Raiders bounced back from a slow first half to pull away from Redbank Valley late, turning a close game into a 63-31 rout of the Lady Bulldogs.

When Brookville went into halftime with a seven-point lead, it was hard to imagine that the Lady Raiders were going to find a way to just cruise to the one-sided victory. Brookville constantly turned the ball over in the first half and couldn't seem to find a consistent offensive attack.

Punxsy ends small losing skid with Monday's win

January 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy ninth-grade girls' basketball team bounced back from its only losing streak to date by thrashing Indiana Monday, 39-14.

The Lady Chucks (8-3) dropped two-straight games to Altoona and Hollidaysburg last week, but Monday, they didn't give up more than four points during any quarter while cruising to a huge win.

Punxsy scored 10 points during each of the first two quarters while taking a 20-7 advantage into the break. After jumping ahead 33-11 entering the final frame, Punxsy allowed just a three-pointer during the fourth quarter.

After nearly four decades of service, Ralph ‘Tucker’ August calls it a day

January 18, 2011

REYNOLDSVILLE — After Feb. 4, Ralph August will no longer be a member of the Reynoldsville police department.

It will be the first time in 39 years that he will not be on the force.

August, known as “Tucker” to most people, is set to retire. He has been the police chief since 1987, and an officer in the borough since 1972. During the past four decades, August has, in most respects, been living out his dream.

His parents owned a restaurant in town. They retired to Florida, anticipating young Tucker to take over the family business.
