August 22, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Senior night will be special this year for the Punxsutawney Area High School boys' soccer team. Each one is special in its own way — if you were involved in an organization in high school, you understand.

But this year's team is driven by the 12th-graders.

They're the seniors who have led the program to a 15-4-1 record, a district title and a 15-5 record in three consecutive years.

You can use the Tomlinism "The standard is the standard" and "The next man is up" if you want, but the senior Chucks will be misssed both on and off the field.
