PUNXSUTAWNEY â In the latest edition of the Route 36 Rivalry, the red and white team from the south breezed its way to the winnerâs circle.
The Punxsy girls basketball blistered Brookville with its relentless defense and balanced scoring in a 63-27 romp.
âDefensive pressure,â bluntly said Punxsy coach Randy Reitz. âThe kids are relentless. They play hard four quarters for 32 minutes.â
Reitz continued, âWeâre deep and we bring in one (player) in after another to keep that pressure on and wear teams down.â
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Thursday night, the National Honor Society inducted new members with 25 Punxsutawney Area High School students being recognized.
The program began at 7 p.m. with an introduction by High School Principal David London.
The public was then introduced to the National Honor Society advisors, who received a thank-you for all their help.
National Honor Society advisors include Dr. Keith Wolfe, superintendent; David London, PAHS principal; Darren Hack, assistant principal; and Russell Bishop and Josh Conrad, teachers.
The fourth day of the Make-a-Wish "Light up a Child's Life" campaign brought the organization closer to reaching its goal.
Thursday morning from 7 to 9 a.m., the campaign once again teamed up with WPXZ and reached out to the listeners, as well as students of the Punxsutawney Area High School and Middle School.
At 9 a.m., the Wish crew settled in at the Pantall Hotel. Al Lockwood, program director of Renda Radio, challenged local businesses to make a pledge and to see which business would donate the most.
BROOKVILLE â The second annual Christmas Village free shopping event will return to Brookville on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Brookville Lanes bowling alley, and opportunities to donate and volunteer are still available for the remainder of the weekend.
The event first appeared in Brookville last year, the brainchild of Brookville Lanes owner Mike Dusch and several other individuals with whom he attended church. The decision was made to hold it at Brookville Lanes because âwe have the room,â Dusch said.
