ST. MARYS â€” Every team dreams and sets goals for its seasons. The Lady Chucks volleyball team was able to fulfill its dream of District IX gold in dramatic fashion Thursday night at St. Marys High School.
Trailing by a game, Punxsy came together to take game four and outlasted Bradford, 18-16, in the match-deciding set to capture the program's seventh title in eight years.
"Everyone on this team contributed to this win tonight. It feels like a dream to bring the District Championship plaque back to Punxsutawney," exclaimed the winning head coach Heather Good.
The Punxsy defense led by Caesar Maruca (left, 20), Zak Bevak (middle), Brandon Wingert (right, 64) and company stuff a Moniteau runner last Friday. The Chucks travel to face the Panthers of Northern Bedford tonight at 7 p.m. in the regular season finale.
