Chucks try to keep title streak alive

May 28, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Entering the season, the Punxsy Chucks baseball team put the number out there from the start: Nine.

In 2011, the Chucks earned their eighth-consecutive District IX title, and this year, the expectation was to put themselves in a position to pick up number nine.

Lady Chucks hope to make it 3-for-3

May 28, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — A torrential downpour knocked down branches across town Sunday evening and chased the Lady Chucks softball team inside for practice.

But despite the rain, Punxsy head coach Alan Pifer said the squad had one very good reason to squeeze in the practice while it still could: A very worthy opponent.

The Lady Chucks will face St. Marys today in the D-IX Class AAA Softball Championship.
