Chucks blow by DCC, 16-1

May 12, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy baseball team scored early and often to climb back to .500 with a 16-1 victory in four innings over DuBois Central Catholic Thursday at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field.

Punxsy (7-7) scored 10 times during the first two innings before it finished off the Cardinals with one run in the third and five in the fourth.

Beavers top Chucks to claim team district title

May 11, 2011

DUBOIS — Wednesday's 4-1 score doesn't fully represent how close the DuBois boys' tennis team's victory over Punxsy in the District IX Class AAA Team Tournament Finals in DuBois.

After the Chucks fell behind 2-0, they won a doubles match and were ahead during the No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles matches. Punxsy couldn't hold onto either lead and had to settle for runner-up distinction for the third time in four seasons.

Lady Raiders split doubledip with Bradford

May 11, 2011

BROOKVILLE — Senior Night was bittersweet for senior outfielder Chey Ross and the rest of Brookville softball team Wednesday afternoon in Brookville.

Ross was happy she tripled and drove in a run and helped the team win Game One 8-2, but was equally as frustrated that the Lady Raiders (3-8) fell to Bradford 15-4 in six innings in the Game Two.

"It felt really good to be able to hit and score off it, too," Ross said. "I thought the first game would be a booster. I don't know what changed (in the second game). We need to pick it up."
