PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Junior Carl Langley is the top seed at 160 pounds and is one of Punxsy's four heavier weights in position to advance past today's District IX Class AAA Individual Wrestling Championships in Clarion.
Langley is joined by teammates Josh Neal (171 pounds), Tige Woodson (189) and Tyler Titus (215) as the Chucks' upper weights to compete today. All three are top-three seeds, and the top-three place-winners advance to regionals next weekend in Altoona.
Punxsy will not have a heavyweight at districts.
CLARION â€” Brookville sophomore Lanae Newsome saw the path to the rim and knew that she had an opportunity to win the game during the Lady Raiders' game at Clarion High School Friday.
She went around a screen at the top of the key and drove to the rim, sidestepping Moniteau's Amanda Sloan and Katie Brehm in the process, and let her shot go.
It glanced off the backboard and went in with three seconds remaining, giving the Lady Raiders a 42-40 win over third-seeded Moniteau (11-11).
Newsome, who finished with a game-high 21-points, said that she wasn't afraid to take the shot.
