PUNXSUTAWNEY â€“ The Punxsy middle school cross country runners have been showing great progress this fall.
The young harriers had two runners, Brady Young and Alexis Vite, in the top 10 at last Saturday's Ridgway Invitational before closing the home slate with a good showing Tuesday afternoon.
Last weekend on the boys' side, Young ran to a sixth place finish on the 1.7-mile middle school course. His time of 10:17 was fast enough to earn him one of the T-shirts given to the top 10 finishers.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€“ If you missed the first quarter, you missed the game. The Punxsy Chucks ninth-grade football team stomped the Brookville Raiders with 41 first quarter points on the way to a 43-6 decisive victory Wednesday night.
Alex Young scored three of the Chucks (6-0) six touchdowns with a 60-yard opening kickoff to go with two long scoring runs of 40 and 35 yards.
Braxton Giavedoni found the end zone on both sides of the ball. He raced into it from 45 yards and intercepted a Raiders' pass to take it 42 yards.
