Staff Writer

The Lady Chucks took several representatives to the Butler Invitational on Friday, with a pair of Punxsy performances earning first place. Sammy Dyson (left) took first place in the shot put with a throw of 37-6, and Leah Miller (right) finished first in the high jump by clearing 5-3.

Punxsy's softball team also had a stellar outing, as Kylee Lingenfelter struck out 18 in seven innings of work and Grace Aikens belted a home run to push the squad past ECC 10-1.

The Chucks baseball team made it a clean sweep of the day by scoring two early runs and holding on for a 2-1 victory at Curwensville.
