May 8, 2012

BRADFORD — Despite a strong showing on the track after a long trip to Bradford Tuesday afternoon, the Chucks track and field team fell to a worthy opponent in the Owls, 90-60, in their final regular season meet.

Punxsy head coach John Smith said he was pleased with his team's effort, adding that a few key pieces on the field were ailing, which can make a big difference in swinging the points.

Despite the tough loss, Punxsy head coach Barry Young told his squad there was just one thing it needed to do: Move on.
