BROOKVILLE â€” Punxsy senior A.J. Meterko is living his dream.
Ever since he was a freshman, the Chucks' long-distance runner had the goal of running in the 1,600-meter run at states.
After his performance Thursday in Brookville during the District IX Class AAA Track and Field Championships, he'll have more to look forward to than just the 1,600.
DUBOIS â€” No matter who they played, Punxsy junior Tim Pearce and sophomore Mike Blose weren't going to be stopped in district play this season.
The duo completed an 11-0 season with a 3-0 day Friday in DuBois to claim the 2011 District IX Class AAA Boys' Tennis Doubles Championship.
As underclassmen with six seniors on the roster, it was unclear how Pearce and Blose would fit into the 2011 Chucks' plans. But a chance doubles practice early in the season started a bond on the court between the two players.
BROOKVILLE â€” Punxsy seniors Nickita Martz and Milea Schall felt pressure to perform for different reasons at the District IX Class AAA Track and Field Championships Thursday in Brookville.
Martz, a three-time champion in the javelin, was in search of a four-peat. Schall, who was seeded first in the 3,200-meter run, was trying to reach the state track meet for the first time ever.
Both girls accomplished their goals, and they did it by blowing away the competition.
