Punxsy uses hard work to improve during preseason practices

December 2, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With three starters gone from a team that played just five or six players nearly every game last year, the Punxsy girls' basketball team is concentrating on working hard to improve with new faces expected to play vital roles this season.

Gone are Amber Fye and Megan McCully, who each graduated this past June. Also, senior Hannah Neal — last year's leading scorer at 12.0 points per game — isn't playing this season, meaning seniors Shawnna Crago and Jenna Reitz are this year's only returning starters.
