PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Senior Shawnna Crago needed just one game to step out as one of the Punxsy softball team's leaders Monday.
Crago, Punxsy's starting pitcher and one of the squad's four captains, hit a three-run home run and struck out seven over three perfect innings to lead the Lady Chucks to a 12-0 victory in five innings over Bradford.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It wasn't pretty, but first-year manager Mike Dickey will take the Punxsy baseball team's 5-3 victory over Bradford in the season-opener Monday at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.
"We don't give back wins," Dickey said. "There are no style points."
The Chucks led 4-0 through three innings before Punxsy's miscues on the base paths and errors in the field allowed the Owls to make things interesting.
Bradford had the tying run on first base during the final inning, but Punxsy relief pitcher Dane Baker induced a fly out to left field that ended the Owls' threat.
DUBOIS â€” Punxsy boys' tennis coach Todd Heigley feels that his team was only a few unforced errors away from beating DuBois Central Catholic in their opener Monday afternoon.
The Chucks lost late leads and a match in a tiebreaker, which may have given them a chance at victory.
But Punxsy (0-1) couldn't pick up enough wins and fell 6-3 at DuBois Central Catholic (1-0).
