Three Punxsy wrestlers advance to PJW states

March 23, 2011

CLARION — Led by a two-time state runner-up, a trio of Punxsy wrestlers will compete in the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling State Championship Tournament this weekend at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre.

Kaleb Young, a runner-up at the PJW state tournament the past two years, will once again compete at states, which take place Friday and Saturday.

For the second-straight year, Young will be joined by Josh Schuckers and Troy Peace after all three finished within the top two places of their weight classes and age divisions at the Area V Tournament last Saturday at Clarion University.

Punxsy's Young finishes career with sixth-most wins in district history

March 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — His 143 victories were the sixth-most in District IX history and by far the most ever by a Punxsutawney Area High School wrestler. His 92 pins were second-highest in District IX lore, two behind the record holder. He won four district titles, reached the state tournament twice and earned a regional title once during his four-year career.

Though he didn't compete at a school that has ever been associated with the best in the district, Punxsy senior Kody Young just completed a career that ranks up with the best in the area.

March 16, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney proved that it is a growing wrestling program by sending two wrestlers to the PIAA Tournament last weekend, and at the lower levels, it has shown that more talent is on the way.

Punxsy will send 29 grapplers to Saturday's Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Area V Tournament at Clarion University. That's a distinct difference from last year's 17 Area V qualifiers.
