BROOKVILLE â€” On a chilly day along Interstate-80, Punxsy was still able to record many personal best efforts amongst a 22-team field at Saturdayâ€™s 15th Annual DeManâ€™s track and field invitational.
The Chucks boys, highlighted by Kevin Hughes' and Will Harmonâ€™s days, totaled four first places, while the Punxsy girls had three top- three placings in the non-team scoring event.
As a whole, the Punxsy boys had a good day with various personal best performances recorded.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A good start to a full slate of weekâ€™s games was just what Punxsy head coach Mike Dickey would have ordered.
