Home finale comeback foiled by Lady Lions

May 17, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It had all the ingredients of yet another Lady Chucks' come-from-behind, thrilling victory. But unfortunately, not every story has a happy ending, and the Lady Lions of Altoona eked out an 11-10, eight-inning victory over Punxsy Thursday afternoon in its home finale.

"That was a tough loss today," Punxsy head coach Alan Pifer said. "We had a lot of chances and left too many girls on base. We battled back, and that was encouraging. But it is definitely disappointing that we had our chances and just couldn't seem to score when we really needed to."

More than half of the members of the PAHS Class of 2012 received awards and scholarships Thursday, and they also celebrated that despite its small numbers, it hosted the highest-grossing, most-profitable Variety Show in the history of the event, raising $19,425.84 — of which half will benefit the Margaret C. Boles Scholarship Foundation, and the other half will go toward the senior’s post-graduation party.
