PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsy's girls' soccer team has one week of practice and one scrimmage under its belt, but first-year head coach Kevin Hughes still has a lot to look forward to.
Just because Hughes has the first-year label tacked onto the front of his title this year, though, doesn't mean he isn't familiar with the game and Punxsy's soccer system.
DUBOIS â€” The Punxsutawney girls' tennis team fell in its first match of the season to what Punxsy head coach Rose Graffius said was "one of the tougher teams that we will play" in DuBois, 9-0, Wednesday afternoon.
Despite the fact that her team was unable to win any matches, Graffius still saw some promising signs from her team, which lost several of its experienced players from last season.
"Overall, I was pleased with the team's performance, considering the lack of varsity court experience that many of the girls have," she said.
