PUNXSUTAWNEY — Tom Chelgren is a recognizable face around town. He may be most recognizable as a former sergeant for the Pennsylvania State Police, or perhaps, you have seen him throughout the community involved in one of his many activities.

Lady Chucks take care of Lady Raiders on Senior Night

October 17, 2013

UNXSUTAWNEY — On Thursday night, the Lady Chucks' volleyball team hosted the Lady Raiders of Brookville for their Senior Night.

With their rival in town, and their seniors being honored, the best case scenario for the Lady Chucks would be a three-game shut out of the Lady Raiders.

While they were unable to complete that unreachable task, they did the next best thing.

Punxsy sent off its seniors with a three-game sweep, outscoring the Lady Raiders 75-21 (25-5, 25-10, 25-6) en route to victory.
