Punxsy picks up win, but struggles on the mat

Marred by injuries, Clarion's squad dressed just five grapplers Tuesday, and four of the five earned victories.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Over the weekend, the town of Punxsutawney â€” more specifically the Punxsutawney Area Community Center and SS.C.D. â€” hosted 14 different sixth-grade basketball teams, both boys' and girls' for an annual tournament.
