Three down, one to go: Morgan to compete today

May 25, 2012

SHIPPENSBURG — The three Punxsy athletes who were slated to compete at the PIAA Class AAA Track and Field Championships Friday in Shippensburg knew they had their work cut out for them with stiff competition from across the state converging on the meet.

And with the seed times, Punxsy knew it would be a long shot for any of its athletes to advance beyond the preliminary rounds.

And although none did advance, all three underclassmen — sophomores Juliann Boddorf and Kevin Hughes and junior Alexis Young — gained some valuable experience running in the big tourney.

I-Medical puts up 17 in victory over Walbeck

May 25, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Hunter Hickok and Dakotah Byers combined to pitch a two-hitter, and I-Medical's bats did the rest, helping Punxsy cruise to a 17-4, five-inning victory over Walbeck in Indiana County Youth Legion action Friday in Punxsutawney.

Hickok allowed three runs, none of which were earned, and Byers allowed just one on a balk.

Hickok's line included four strikeouts, and Byers fanned three in just two innings of work.

Kerr third-best, Newsomes still alive at Class AA PIAAs

May 25, 2012

SHIPPENSBURG — Five individual performers for the Brookville track and field teams participated in Friday's events at the PIAA Class AA Track and Field State Championships in Shippensburg, with one walking away a medalist and two advancing beyond the preliminary rounds to today's action.

Ryan Kerr — a thrower for the boys' track and field team — earned a third-place finish in the finals, which were held Friday, with a throw of 194-8. While Kerr's seed throw of 207-2 would have been enough to eclipse the first-place mark, finishing third at the state meet is still quite an accomplishment.
