Chucks hang first track and field defeat of the spring season on Beavers

April 16, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The finally tally was close but the Chucks swept the final 14 points in the last two events to seal the victory.

After falling behind midway through the meet, Punxsy finished off strong to hand the first track and field defeat to DuBois, 89-61.

"At times, DuBois was ahead as it was a lot closer than people thought. We had a game plan going in. One where we wanted to win, and we put our guys in strategic spots to do so," explained Punxsy head coach John Smith. "We picked up second and third places we needed to as those points make a difference at the end."
