MARION CENTER â€” Marion Center's girls' volleyball team defeated the Lady Chucks in three sets, 25-16, 25-14, 25-22, behind strong serving and hitting from senior Kristen Yeomans.
Yeomans' serve was kryptonite to Punxsy's returners as she served a seven-point streak in the first set, a seven-point streak in the second and an eight-point streak in the third and deciding set.
Each run came early in the game, giving the Lady Stingers some breathing room in the contest. Without Yeomans' streaks, the sets would have been very close from start to finish.
ST. MARYS â€” The Lady Chucks eighth-grade team basketball team outscored St. Marys 13-6 in the final quarter of Monday afternoon's game in St. Marys to earn a 31-14 win.
"All the girls played well in the second half to help us pull away," Punxsy head coach Mike Carlson said. "After St. Marys cut it to six point in the fourth quarter, the girls executed perfectly."
Punxsy's scoring was led by Hope Bridge, who scored 15 points. Bridge was followed by Emma White, who scored eight.

Parise Youth Football Team Senior team scored on three of its firstÂ four offensive possessions of the game, and for the second straight game, dominated on the defensive side of the ball to earn a 34-8 victory over Clarion-Limestone Saturday on a rainy after-noon in Strattanville.
Punxsy started its first drive atÂ the 40-yard line. Joey DiPietro had runs of 11 and eight yards to rev up the offense.
Patrick Fedigan's 17-yard run three plays later moved Punxsy to the 25.
