Punxsy's Young finishes fourth at PJWs

March 30, 2011

WILKES-BARRE — Kaleb Young's search for a Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling state championship will have to wait another year.

Young, a 102-pounder competing in the 13- and 14-year-old age division, finished fourth this year at the PJW State Championship Tournament this past weekend at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.

The wrestler finished as a state runner-up the past two years.

Young, a seventh-grader, was one of three Punxsutawney grapplers to compete in the state tournament.

Also wrestling were Josh Schuckers (107 pounds) and Troy Peace (212 pounds).

Clarion tops Brookville during snowy game

March 30, 2011

CLARION — When the infielders for Brookville and Clarion's softball teams raced toward ground balls Wednesday afternoon at Clarion, they were forced to contend with Mother Nature, as well as their opponents.

The snow started about an hour before the game and continued throughout, leaving both teams scrambling to stay warm and trying to find solid footing in the field.

The Lady Bobcats (3-0) overcame the conditions and used a strong outing from starting pitcher from Krysta Fuller to beat the Lady Raiders, 12-0.
