PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” When the last track event of the day, the 4x400-meter relay, arrived Tuesday in Brookville, Punxsy boys' head coach John Smith wasn't sure if his team would be able to pull out a victory.
That's when he urged his 4x400 runners â€” Tom Wagner, Derick Kelly, Nathan Ward and A.J. Meterko â€” to finish strong, considering their victory and the five team points the foursome could earn would push the overall win in the Chucks' favor.
BROOKVILLE â€” Brookville's speed on the track compensated for the Punxsy girls' track and field team's power in the field during the Lady Raiders' 78-72 victory at home Tuesday.
Punxsy (1-1) was in control of nearly every field event, but the Lady Raiders (1-0) swept both the 100- and 200-meter dashes and won all three relays.
