BROOKVILLE â€” Tuesday night's Brookville boys' varsity game against St. Marys could be called a lot of things, but perhaps the most fitting would be to call it a reality check.
The Raiders played well in the first half and led by as many as 10 points before the Dutchmen stormed out of halftime to shut down the Raiders and take the lead. From there, St. Marys never looked back, picking up a 55-45 victory in Brookville, handing the Raiders their first loss of the season in the process.
DUBOIS â€” A strong performance from Shawnaa Crago in the post proved to be too powerful for DuBois Central Catholic Monday night as the Lady Chucks picked up a 45-37 road win over the Lady Cardinals in DuBois.
The plan was to get the ball low to Crago, and Punxsy executed all night long. The senior finished with 17 points to lead all scorers in a game that moved Punxsy's record to 3-6 on the year, with a trip to Brookville looming Thursday.
"The guards did a nice job getting her the ball in the low post," Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz said. "Shawnna did a very nice job of finishing."
WHEELING, W.Va. â€” The Punxsutawney varsity wrestling team had a strong showing last Tuesday and Wednesday at the Wheeling Park tournament as the Chucks took 10th place out of the 40-team field.
While the Chucks as a team looked strong up and down the board, the annual tournament was highlighted by the return of senior Kody Young, wrestling in his first action of the season.
Young, along with teammate Neko Cappella, finished the two-day tournament with a combined record of 8-0 to lead Punxsy, with Young's victories coming in record-breaking fashion.
