May 10, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy girls' track and field team could not surmount District IX Class AAA rival Bradford, but did earn a victory over District VI Hollidaysburg during Senior Recognition Day Tuesday in Punxsutawney.

The Lady Chucks (4-5) lost to the Lady Owls, 93-57, but dominated the Lady Golden Tigers, 105 1/2-44 1/2, thanks to a great day in the field.

Knowing how talented Bradford is, Punxsy head coach Barry Young was happy with his girls and pleased with what a nice day Tuesday was after a season of rainy and cold weather.

Chucks split with Golden Tigers, Owls

May 10, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Tuesday was a bittersweet Senior Recognition Day for the Punxsy boys' track and field team, as the Chucks defeated District VI Hollidaysburg and lost to District IX Class AAA rival Bradford to conclude the regular season.

Punxsy (5-4) handled the Golden Tigers, 95-55, and was defeated by the Owls, 105-45.

The Chucks competed without distance-running senior Tom Wagner and junior Brody Morgan, who has by far been the team's finest thrower this season. Without them, Bradford earned every throwing point but one and was victorious in the 4x800-meter relay.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Once Williamsport figured out Punxsy starting pitcher Shawnna Crago Tuesday afternoon, the Lady Chucks' softball team couldn't contain the Lady Millionares' offense.

District VI Williamsport (12-4) used a five-run, seven-hit fifth inning to rally past Punxsy (8-3) and won 9-4 on the Lady Chucks' Senior Recognition Day.

Punxsy manager Alan Pifer said the fifth inning was the turning point.
