PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Lady Chucks middle school volleyball team opened its season last Thursday against Brockway and continued Tuesday afternoon against the Lady Beavers of DuBois.

In the first game, Punxsy picked up a win behind Emma White's eight aces, including one on game point to seal the game.

"Overall, it was just a really good game," Punxsy head coach Megan Decker said. "Emma's serves were really good, and that definitely helped."
