After slow start, JV Chucks' bats come to life

May 3, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Despite not yet recording a base hit and trailing 3-2 after two innings Thursday afternoon in Punxsutawney, the Punxsy JV baseball team scored 13 runs on 12 hits over the course of the final three innings to win a 15-3, five-inning contest over Marion Center via the 10-run rule.

"Our bats started out a little bit sluggish, and it seemed like we needed a wake up call," Punxsy head coach Rodney Thompson said after the game. "When you have some pitching that's a little bit slower, you have to stay back on it. But hitting is still hitting."

Memorabilia to preserve Harrick's accomplishments for years to come

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It would be a "virtually impossible" feat today, according to his daughter, Mary Ann Barilar.

But from 1917-1921, Joseph (Joe) V. Harrick (1895-1958), earned 16 letters during his college career at West Virginia University, and is the one and only recognized 16-time letterwinner in WVU history.

A Punxsutawney native and former Punxsy coach, Harrick's greatest feat was earning four varsity letters each in football, baseball, wrestling and track and field.
