PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Punxsy junior-high wrestling team surrendered four forfeits Monday, but overcame the deficit and earned an impressive 57-45 victory over Altoona at home.
"We were pretty pleased with our performance on the mats. Obviously, to win this one after giving up a total of four forfeits is a big win," Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said. "Not that we still don't have room for improvement in many areas, but we're definitely happy with the final outcome, and we saw a lot of nice things out there. We looked rather aggressive and ready to wrestling."
