Lady Chucks feel confident entering states

November 11, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Coming off their sixth-straight District IX Class AA Championship, the Punxsy volleyball team feels as good as ever about its chances of advancing past the first stage of the PIAA playoffs this weekend.

In years past, Punxsy would run into a talented WPIAL foe that, for the most part, overpowered the Lady Chucks in a best-of-five match. This season, Punxsy will test its mettle against three teams in a round-robin tournament that begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the North Hills Junior High School Annex.

Presloid chosen as UAVSL MVP

November 10, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — When Punxsy junior Tyler Presloid received the news that he was named the Upper Allegheny Valley Soccer League Boys' Central Division Most Valuable Player, he was quite surprised.

"This is a huge honor because there are a lot of good players in the league," Presloid said. "To be named MVP, I'm just speechless."

Those around the league can't be the least bit shocked about the honor, as the junior set the PAHS single-season school record with 25 goals and led the Chucks to a 15-4-1 record and their first-ever District IX Class AA Championship Game berth.

Strong season comes to close for Raiders

November 10, 2010

SOMERSET — After losing by a goal in the District IX Class A Championship Game last Thursday to Northern Potter, the Brookville Raiders had a new attitude when it came to the PIAA state playoffs: Have fun.

The Raiders entered the first round of the state tournament Tuesday in Somerset with a laid back feel, and the notion that playing a loose game with zero pressure would be the best approach. That mindset nearly paid off, as the Raiders kept pace with North Star before surrendering a second-half goal, ending Brookville's season with a 1-0 loss to the Cougars.
