It's a big day: Softball, baseball open PIAAs

June 3, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With their respective wins over St. Marys last Wednesday in Brockway, the Chucks baseball team and the Lady Chucks softball team each advanced to today's opening round of the PIAA Class AAA State Championships.

On the boys' end, the Chucks, who earned an impressive ninth-consecutive District IX crown last Wednesday, will open the PIAAs with a 4 p.m. contest against a WPIAL team — the Belle Vernon Leopards — who finished as District VII's second seed after a 1-0 loss in a pitching duel against Blackhawk in the D-VII championship game last Thursday.

Newsome repeats with triple jump state title

June 1, 2012

SHIPPENSBURG — In just one jump, Lanae Newsome surpassed her 40-foot goal, broke the state record and won her second PIAA Class AA triple jump championship.

"It was just really exciting," Newsome said. "I was really happy. ... That was my best jump ever."

Newsome and king seed Paige Lumley, of Richland, battled out the competition throughout the day. The state record was broken four times during last Saturday's competition.

The previous state record (39-5.75) was held by Rhonda Witmer, of Greenwood.
