PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Playing back-to-back days in any sport is tough. Punxsy proved to be successful on both ends of the matches as it breezed past rival Brookville, 3-0, Tuesday night.
Behind 15 service aces and strong serving in the sets, the Lady Chucks (5-1) claimed the three games by scores of 25-13, 25-10 and 25-11.
"Any time you win a match in three sets it is a good thing. It is a feat for any team any time," said Punxsy's coach Heather Good. "Sydney Phillips and Chelsea Engeholm served extremely well, while Taylor Newcome had a solid night on our front line."
