ST. MARYS â€” March 10, the Punxsy eighth-grade girls' volleyball team traveled to Elk County for the ECC Tournament, and the Lady Chucks finished with an impressive 9-1 record on the day.
"This was a great day of volleyball for the eighth-grade girls," Punxsy coach Megan Decker said. "They finished the day with an impressive record, and they really pulled together and worked on their individual weaknesses, as well as the teams'."
The tournament's format saw each team playing five others in two-game sets.
