Total team effort propels Chucks to 51-21 victory

January 7, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy wrestling team proved it is a squad that has more than one talented grappler Thursday night with a 51-21 victory over Curwensville in its first home match of the season.

The Chucks (6-6) fell behind 15-6 following the first-ever home loss of senior Kody Young before rallying off five-straight victories that carried into the decisive win.

Young (9-1), who was competing in his first home match since breaking the school record in career victories Dec. 28, 2010, was up against Curwensville's best wrestler in junior Jake Keller.

Turnovers once again doom Lady Chucks

January 7, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Turnovers in crucial situations have crept up on the Punxsy girls' basketball team all season, and Thursday's game in Brookville was no different.

The Lady Chucks (3-7, 0-2 District IX League) were ahead by four points at halftime only to give the ball away too many times during a 40-33 loss to Brookville.

"They came out in the third quarter and turned up the heat defensively, and we didn't handle it very well," Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz said. "Their defense created some turnovers for them, they got up eight points, and we just couldn't bring it down."
