PUNXSUTAWNEY â A solid all-around softball team is always a challenge, but even more so when a team has limited outside and game time before the matchup.
Despite being on its way to being a good softball club, Punxsy could not match the quality Williamsport squad on Saturday and dropped a close game for the majority of the day, 10-1.
âThat was a good quality team over there. They have offense with the pitching to go with it,â noted Lady Chucks coach Alan Pifer. âI told the girls from the start they had to share the hitting load."
Helman's Boxing held a Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing event at the Punxsutawney Area Community Center (PACC) last Saturday night and raised $2,200 that was donated to the center.

Helman's Boxing recently moved its practice facility into the second floor above the PACC Fitness Center in the old school board meeting room.
