PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After posting its third-straight victory last Friday, the Punxsy Chucks squad will look to pass another road test against the traditionally tough Karns City Gremlins.
â€śKarns City is a fantastic program,â€ť points out Punxsy head coach Alan Nichol. â€śThey have won a good amount of the District IX AA championships and are a solid program.â€ť
The two Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference Large School Division co-leaders have produced very similar 2012 results to this point of the season. Both squads have 2-0 marks in the KSAC Large School Division and have 4-2 overall records.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Another week and another perfect outcome was the order of business for the Punxsy seventh-grade girls' basketball team.
The Lady Chucks won three of four quarters on the way to their third win of the week, 21-14 over Altoona-Maroon on Thursday afternoon in Punxsutawney.
"What a nice, hard-earned win against another quality opponent in Altoona-Maroon," said Punxsy coach Darrin Kriebel. "The girls definitely showed everybody in attendance including the visiting team just how far they've come as a team this year."
