ST. MARYS â€” Punxsy senior Kody Young knew the Chucks would hold on for a win once six bouts remained during the Punxsy wrestling team's match against St. Marys Wednesday night.
Punxsy was ahead 22-12 after 189-pounder Tige Woodson, Young's senior teammate, suffered a loss by decision, but Young was still certain his squad would come out on top.
Punxsy lost the next two bouts by fall and fell behind 24-22, but clutch decision victories by two freshmen, and Young's pin during the final match of the night propelled the Chucks to a 34-30 upset of the Dutch on their Senior Night.
BROOKVILLE â€” The last time the Brookville girls' basketball team played Elk County Catholic, nothing went right for the Lady Raiders.
Starting forward Emily Ferraro was out with an injury, the Lady Raiders had to travel to play the Lady Crusaders on a Saturday night after playing a tough game against St. Marys the night before, and the Lady Raiders were in the middle of a four-game losing streak.
But when the two teams met Wednesday night at Brookville, the Lady Raiders' luck changed.
