Skerkavich's three-run homer, Ty Zimmerman's grand slam catapult Chucks to 4-0

April 11, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy baseball team has been a notoriously slow starter the past few years.

When the Chucks won the state title in 2007, they followed a 6-5 start by winning 10 of their final 12 games. Last year, Punxsy's seventh-straight District IX Class AAA Championship team started 3-7.

Monday, in a change from years past, Punxsy continued its quick start behind home runs by Tyler Skerkavich and Ty Zimmerman when it improved to 4-0 after a 16-9 victory over Class AAAA DuBois.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsy senior Dave Roberts had to fight hard to pick up his first win of the season Monday afternoon at Punxsutawney Area High School.

Roberts, the Chucks' No. 1 singles player, lost the first set 7-5. After forcing a tiebreaker by winning the second set, 6-3, he fell behind by three points in the tiebreaker.

He rebounded and came back to earn his first win of the season with a 10-7 win in the tiebreak, which helped Punxsy (1-2) beat Clearfield, 9-0.
