A RARE DAY OFF FOR THESE GIRLS

January 17, 2012

Although the winter sports schedule isn't quite as hectic as the fall sports season, a night with no events — such as Monday night — is still a rarity. Faithfully attending all home events, and some on the road, Punxsy's cheerleaders rarely see a day off. This season's middle school cheerleaders are (front, from left) Kassi Niver, Kylee Knox, Hailyn Fye, Emily Travis; (middle) Laura Keller, Brianna Roy, Jalynn Mineweaser, Savannah Wolfe, Libby Anderson; (back) Tabitha Windsor and Sarah Malberg.

Raiders ace big test against Johnsonburg

January 17, 2012

BROOKVILLE — Heading into Monday night's game, the Brookville Raiders knew they were facing one of the district's best basketball squads in the Johnsonburg Rams.

But the Raiders prevailed, putting up 11 points in overtime and holding the Rams to just four to earn the 64-55 victory.

"I thought it was a pretty fierce game, physical underneath, and you had two teams out there that didn't want to lose," Brookville head coach Bud Baughman said. "Fortunately, we had a few lucky breaks for us; that was the difference in the game."
