Young Township hopes cameras, new recycling site will deter illegal dumping

October 5, 2011

WALSTON — At last, the recycling bins formerly located at Walston Community Park have moved to the Young Township Municipal building, Walston Road.

Township Supervisor Andrew Meterko said the main reason the recycling bins were moved was due to the lack of security at the playground location.

“We won’t have to go up and gather all the garbage that people brought to the old recycling location at the park,” he said. Township workers regularly picked up a variety of items from the former site, including televisions, mattresses and garbage.

Perfect season continues Lady Chucks win District-IX Title

October 4, 2011

KANE — After another convincing victory Tuesday in Kane, the Lady Chucks' golf team is still undefeated, but Tuesday's victory was a bit sweeter than the first 16, as Tuesday's win meant Punxsy was the District IX champion.

"We've had our hopes set on this win all season, but we knew going into today's match that we would have some serious competition," Punxsy head coach Katie Irwin said. "The course has some very tricky holes, and Kane had a definite advantage playing on their own course. But our girls played smart, focused rounds and deserved the win."

Marion Center stings the Lady Chucks

October 4, 2011

MARION CENTER — Marion Center's girls' volleyball team defeated the Lady Chucks in three sets, 25-16, 25-14, 25-22, behind strong serving and hitting from senior Kristen Yeomans.

Yeomans' serve was kryptonite to Punxsy's returners as she served a seven-point streak in the first set, a seven-point streak in the second and an eight-point streak in the third and deciding set.

Each run came early in the game, giving the Lady Stingers some breathing room in the contest. Without Yeomans' streaks, the sets would have been very close from start to finish.

October 2, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In rainy, windy and soggy conditions Saturday at Jack LaMarca Stadium, the Punxsy boys' soccer team was able to maintain an upbeat tempo en route to a 5-0 win over the Elk County Catholic Crusaders.

The Chucks jumped on the Crusaders early when Brycen Lunger fired a shot at the net in the first minute of the game. Elk County's keeper came out to play the ball, but Punxsy's Tyler Presloid beat him to it and headed it just out of his reach, and the ball rolled into the cage giving Punxsy a very-early 1-0 lead.
