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.

CLARION — Brookville's two basketball programs ran into the bully on the block in the first round of the PIAA Class AA playoffs and neither team could come away with a win.
