PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Nick Gillung, a 2007 Punxsutawney Area High School graduate, kept an eye on the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Tuesday just in case any of the athletes he played with on summer teams were selected.
Little did he know, his own name would come onto his computer screen in the 19th round.
Pictured are the Punxsutawney Area High School's 2010-11 Winter Sports Most Valuable Players (front, from left): Jenna Reitz, girls' basketball; Kissy Wright, cheerleading; (back) Kody Young, wrestling co-MVP; Logan Weaver, boys' basketball; and Seth Spack, wrestling co-MVP. The Punxsutawney Booster Club sponsors the Most Valuable Player awards. The winners are determined by a vote of all members of each team based on team leadership, character and athletic performance.
