PUNXSUTAWNEY â Rossiter resident Lisa Campbell and her fiance didnât expect to meet a future TV star on their summer vacation to Mexico.
But by what Campbell terms âjust a fluke,â the duo did just that, encountering the unexpected.
While on a retreat at the Iberostar Paraiso del Mar resort in Rivera Maya, Campbell unsuspectingly struck up a casual conversation with a young woman accompanied by her father.
Little did Campbell know that her shoot-the-breeze companion, Lindsay Hill, would be a future contestant on season 15 of ABCâs television series âThe Bachelor.â
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Whether buttons, old coins, baseball cards or dolls, everyone has a collection that he or she cherishes.
Ever since Douglas Bartlebaugh was a little boy, he had a fascination with license plates. When he was young, he took the plates off old cars at his PaPaâs junk yard, whereas they all were special to him, and still are.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Filling nearly every weight class has benefitted the Punxsy junior-high wrestling team all season, and Wednesday night against Redbank Valley was no different, as the Chucks earned a 72-13 victory at home.
Punxsy would have won 36-13 on the mat if not for six forfeits, but with those easy wins, it registered the 59-point win. The Chucks (11-1) all but clinched their 11th-straight victory by scoring the first 36 points of the match.
BROOKVILLE â Senior wrestler Dylan Buffington temporarily lost his confidence Thursday night after he was taken down by St. Marys' Ben Cheatle in the first period of their 160-pound bout.
Buffington doesnât wrestle varsity much, but it didnât show, as he didnât panic, reversed Cheatle, and ended up scoring a pin before the end of the first period to earn his first win of the season. Buffington earned the Clint Puller award for outstanding wrestler of the match.
It was the first time he won a Puller Award for wrestling. He previously won one for track and field.
