Teamwork is the key to Punxsy's success

August 17, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Tennis is a sport that is most often considered an individual one, except in the case of doubles, but Punxsy girls' tennis coach Rose Graffius is using the so-called individual sport to instill lessons about teamwork in her girls this year.

Entering her fourth year as Punxsy's girls' tennis coach, Graffius is optimistic about the way her girls are playing, despite limited practice so far.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — When the boys' golf team tees off Friday morning at the Punxsutawney Country Club, the Punxsutawney Area High School's fall sports regular season will officially be underway.

Under the leadership of fourth-year coach Josh Conrad, the Chucks hope to improve from last year when no Punxsy player made it through the first day of districts.

Conrad said his players understand that Punxsy's program has a history of success, and he feels confident they will give their all to make this year a successful one.

For as long as I can remember, there has been a debate in the sports community, among athletes and fans alike, centered around one important question: What exactly is a sport?

In high school, I knew the question existed, but I also didn't really have to consider the answer too closely. Most of my friends liked and followed the same sports I did, and so there was no room for debate.

Football? Basketball? Hockey? Baseball? There was no debate with those sports. Whether we liked to watch them or not was one question, but we each acknowledged they were all sports.
