The Punxsy girls' soccer team held its banquet Wednesday night at the Christian Missionary Alliance Church. At the banquet, Punxsy head coach Kevin Hughes thanked his senior players for their time on the team, wished them well and encouraged the players who weren't graduating to start thinking about what they could do to improve next year. Letter pins were presented to all players who earned them, and seniors were presented with warm-up jackets with their names on them as mementos. Pictured (from left) are seniors Alissa Vite, Sierra Milton, Kelsey Young, Cenneca Dilts and Tasha Story.
