BRADFORD â€” With a two-hour-plus bus ride to Bradford, the Lady Chucks softball team headed north Wednesday evening and made the trip well worth it, as pitchers Ashley Bacha and Monica Cameron combined to pitch a perfect game in Punxsy'a 18-0, four-inning win.
Bacha pitched the first three innings to earn the win, striking out all nine batters she faced, and Cameron pitched the final inning in relief, striking out one to preserve the perfect game.
DUBOIS â€” Tuesday afternoon, the Punxsy boys' track team headed to DuBois to take on the best athletes District IX has to offer in the same meet, and despite a fifth-place team finish, the Chucks again had a number of strong individual performances.
The Chucks, with 66 points, finished just three points behind the fourth-place squad, Elk County Catholic, with DuBois winning with a score of 149 1/3-points.
Last week, I wrote about the importance of realizing that sometimes, in life, you're going to lose â€”Â or, your favorite professional team is going to lose.
Sunday, I found myself slumped on my couch, staring at the wall thinking, "The Penguins can't be done."
Tuesday, I awoke with the initial thought, "It's a great day for hockey," and sent my mom a text saying, "It just feels like the Penguins should be playing today."
But, alas, the NHL season â€” at least for my favorite team â€”Â has come to an end.
