RIDGWAY â€” The Chucks may not have taken first place at this year's PIAA District IX Cross Country Championships in Ridgway Saturday afternoon, but the performances of A.J. Meterko and Dane Baker certainly qualify as a successful trip to districts.
Meterko was strong, finishing second overall while Baker took fourth to qualify for the state championships next weekend in Hershey.
Meterko's time of 17:27 made him district runner-up, while Baker clocked in with a time of 17:56.
RIDGWAY â€” To say that the Punxsutawney girls' varsity cross country team just missed out on winning its third-straight PIAA District IX Cross Country Championship would be a vast understatement.
The Lady Chucks finished in a tie with Bradford with 30 points, but the championship went the way of the Lady Owls as Bradford's sixth runner finished four places ahead of Punxsy's sixth runner, giving Bradford the edge.
BROCKWAY â€“ Two boysâ€™ soccer squads that were destined to meet again will face off with a District IX Class AA Final berth on the line for the second-straight season at 7 p.m. tonight in Brockway.
The Punxsy Chucks (14-3-1), who were eliminated by St. Marys in last yearâ€™s playoffs in a shootout, enter tonightâ€™s game coming off their best regular season in school history. The St. Marys Flying Dutchmen (13-3-2) have just as impressive of a 2010 resume, and theyâ€™re in search of advancing to yet another district championship game.
