It's the end of the road, but it was a good ride

MONACA — Entering Tuesday night's PIAA play-in game against the Central Valley Warriors, Punxsy boys' basketball coach Dirk Neal said anything after the District IX tournament was simply "icing on the cake."

After a successful season that saw Punxsy overcome the loss of a senior point guard to transfer and the Chucks earn their first trip to the D-IX title game since 2005, Punxsy's season came to an end Tuesday at the hands of the Warriors, 54-45.

Despite the loss, Punxsy Neal was pleased with the full-game effort from his squad.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsy's seventh- and eighth-grade girls' volleyball teams each took on DuBois Central Catholic Tuesday afternoon in Punxsutawney, and both teams earned sweeps over the Lady Cardinals.

In the eighth-grade contest, a three-game sweep for the Lady Chucks, Punxsy was dominant, picking up 25-16, 25-10 and 25-13 victories over DCC.

The first few points of the first game were fairly uneventful before Punxsy's Mallory Cameron stepped to the line and picked up two aces to give Punxsy a 4-3 lead.
