PUNXSUTAWNEY â Last Tuesday, Punxsy's junior high wrestling team met a much larger Hollidaysburg team that filled each necessary weight class, and despite outdoing Hollidaysburg 27-18 on the mat, the Chucks again fell because they had a smaller squad, 48-27, to the Golden Tigers.
EDINBORO â Saturday, a group of Punxsy athletes traveled to Edinboro for the second consecutive weekend to compete at the Tri-State Track Coaches Association's Meet No. 3 at Edinboro University, and in their final qualifying attempt of the year, several of the athletes positioned themselves to possibly compete at the Tri-State Championship Meet Feb. 18 at Edinboro.
Punxsy head coach John Smith said the athletes that put themselves in the best position to qualify were those on the distance medley relay team, which ran an overall time of 12:25.12 Saturday.
DUBOIS â Avenging last season's upset loss to Ridgway and earning the District IX Class AA title were the only two things Brookville head coach Dave Klepfer and the Raiders wrestling squad had on their minds heading into Saturday's championship match.
The Raiders were strong, motivated and unstoppable, rolling over five-time district champ Ridgway for a 36-33 victory, the team championship title and a trip to the PIAA wrestling championship Thursday in Hershey.
