Local boxer taking her shot at nationals

With her recent win in Johnstown, Aviana Gillaugh is going the distance and is on her way to nationals in Lubbock, Texas, Dec. 3-10. She said going to nationals has been a dream of hers since she started boxing, and now Aviana and her coach and father, Gregg Gillaugh, are focused on sharpening up her skills and keeping her in fighting shape in preparation for the challenges ahead.

DUBOIS — When she straps on her boxing gloves and hits the heavy bag with steely focus, Aviana Gillaugh has one goal in mind: getting another belt to put on her wall. After her victory this weekend at the Battle at the Castle at Castle Boxing in Johnstown, she will get her shot as she is heading to Lubbock, Texas, in December for nationals.

Her road to nationals made a decisive stop in Johnstown over the weekend, where she faced off against Mira Bailey.
