PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Despite having a disappointing regular season finale, the Punxsy Chucks football team was able to qualify for the District V-VI-VIII-IX subregional playoffs. The foe will be a familiar one for Punxsy as it will travel over the mountain to tackle undefeated District IX champ Clearfield on Friday night in a 7 p.m. kickoff.
In the new format, the Chucks (5-5) enter the AAA subregional tournament as the fourth seed. Clearfield (10-0) holds the top seed.
In the other contest, third seed Somerset (5-5) will face University Prep (5-3) as the second seed.
HERSHEY â€” After heading across the state of Pennsylvania with a lot of enthusiasm, sophomore Bo Dinger came across the finish line 19th to earn an All-State individual medal to lead the Punxsy boys' cross country team at the PIAA AA boys' cross country championships on Saturday afternoon in Hershey.
As a team, the Chucks completed the 5K Parkview Cross Country Course with 372 points in 18th of the extremely tough 19-team boys field, narrowly beat out by General McLane with 369 points in the program's first state team appearance since 1998.
