Chucks beat Bellefonte, lose big to Altoona

May 3, 2011

ALTOONA — The Punxsy boys' track and field team was strong in every event but the sprints to beat Bellefonte, 98-52, but Altoona's speed was too much for the Chucks during Altoona's 118-32 win during a tri-meet Tuesday in Altoona.

The Chucks (4-3) won every event but the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes, the 110-meter high hurdles and the 4x400-meter relay while dispatching Bellefonte. Against the Mountain Lions, Punxsy won just two events — the 800-meter dash and the javelin.

Punxsy (3-4) won 14 events against Bellefonte, including sweeps in the discus, triple jump, 400-meter dash and 3,200-meter run.

Against Altoona, the Lady Chucks won five events, led by a pair of first-place distances by Nickita Martz. Martz had the best throws of all three schools in both the shot put (32-5 1/2) and javelin (106-8).

Chucks finish strong while splitting two games with St. Marys

May 3, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — An inning after it allowed eight runs and lost to District IX Class AAA rival St. Marys 14-3 in five innings, the Punxsy baseball team had another game to play Monday night at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field.

Instead of feeling sorry for themselves and letting a loss affect them, the Chucks responded with a five-run first inning during Game 2 and defeated the Dutch 12-3 to split the season series.

The Walk Talk Ten

1. The people who maintain Rich Kuntz Memorial Field and the fields at the Frank Fairman Complex deserve a ton of credit for what they do on a day-to-day basis. Throughout April, as rain came down nearly every day, those fields were almost always ready for baseball and softball. Their dedication and time they put into maintaining those fields shouldn’t be overlooked.
