Regional tournament highlighted by Bowers' States berth for Chucks

March 5, 2012

ALTOONA — A Punxsy record 10 wrestlers advanced to Friday and Saturday's AAA Northwest Regional Tournament, and for one Chucks' grappler, sophomore Joel Bowers at 113 pounds, the weekend was a great success, as Bowers ended the tournament second in the region to earn a berth to the PIAA Class AAA State Championships Thursday through Saturday in Hershey.

Bowers' weekend started Friday with a pair of notches in the win column, but the first came in unusual fashion with a victory by forfeit over Obama's Malik Green.

Chucks' bid at D-IX title comes up just short

CLARION — The Punxsy boys' basketball team traveled to Clarion Saturday with hopes of reaching one of its loftiest preseason goals — a District IX AAA Championship — and unfortunately for the Chucks, they came up just short in a 36-35 loss to D-IX foe Bradford.

Despite the final score, Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said he appreciated the effort his team gave him, adding that he wouldn't have changed a thing.
