Punxsy's Young, Peace still alive at PJWs

March 25, 2011

WILKES-BARRE — Two of Punxsutawney's three wrestlers are still competing after Day One of the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling State Championship Tournament at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.

Kaleb Young, a state runner-up the past two years, has once again advanced to the championship semifinals after a 2-0 day Friday.

Troy Peace won his first two bouts before a loss dropped him to the consolation bracket, while Josh Schuckers lost both of his matches Friday and has been eliminated.

All three of Punxsy's wrestlers are competing in the 13- and 14-year-old age division.

“God put this idea in my mind,” he said.
