Lady Tigers pounce on Lady Chucks early

January 14, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Lady Chucks basketball team knew it had its hands full when the Lady Tigers of Hollidaysburg — defending District VI champion and perennial powerhouse — rolled into town on snow-covered roads Friday night.

Punxsy (3-9, 0-2) wasn't able to break the Lady Tigers' press, and Hollidaysburg scored eight points in the first minute and opened with a 13-0 run on its way to a 78-32 win.

Back to .500 — Punxsy takes down Ridgway

January 14, 2012

RIDGWAY — After a tough loss to Brookville put the Punxsy junior high wresting team below the .500 mark for the season at 2-3, Punxsy rebounded with a victory Thursday night in Ridgway to return to .500.

As has been the case for Punxsy in more matches than not this season, it dominated the bouts that took place on the mat. But in an interesting move, Punxsy head coach Bill Burke said Ridgway opted to exchange several forfeits as opposed to allowing its wrestlers to take to the mat during regulation.
