Across the board: Punxsy dominates all facets

April 27, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The only forewarning the Chucks baseball team needed that it'd have its work cut out for it against Altoona Friday afternoon in Punxsutawney came April 16 when Punxsy eked out a 1-0 win over the Lions in Altoona. Altoona's record was a pretty good indicator, as well, as the Lions entered Friday's contest with just that one loss.

A strong effort in all facets of the game by the Chucks, though, meant Altoona headed back home with a pair of losses to the Chucks this year, as Punxsy earned a 6-1 victory.

CURWENSVILLE — After five innings Friday night in Curwensville, the Lady Chucks softball team trailed the Golden Tide 3-1, but a bit of offensive spark from some unfamiliar faces at the varsity level led Punxsy to a come-from-behind, 5-3 victory in the end.

Facing the two-run deficit, Punxsy's Johnna Depp led off the top of the sixth inning with a single, and Sydney Phillips followed with a walk.

Extended layoff hurts Chucks in loss to DuBois

PUNXSUTAWNEY — After more than a full week off — thanks in part to a snowed-out match against Johnsonburg Monday — the Punxsy boys' tennis team returned to action Friday against a difficult squad in the DuBois Beavers, and DuBois earned a 9-0 victory.

Despite the zero on the score sheet, the Chucks did have a number of close matches, and Punxsy head coach Todd Heigley said it was difficult to keep the rhythm that his team had been building over the course of the season with such a long layoff.
