On Wednesday evening, in Chuck Daly Memorial Gymnasium, the Lady Chucks basketball completed a season sweep of their Route 36 rivals, the Brookville Lady Raiders, with a 46-37 victory. And in doing so, the Punxsy girls staked their claim as the first to take possession of the Punxsy-Brookville Traveling Trophy, presented by Butch White on behalf of the Chuck Daly Foundation. Punxsy saw three girls — Sarah Weaver, Riley Presloid and Chloe Presloid — score in double digits to lead the offense. For a full story and plenty of action photos, see Thursday's print edition of The Spirit.

Other scores from Wednesday included:
• JV girls' basketball: Brookville 36, Punxsy 18

• 8th-grade boys' basketball: Altoona-White 31, Punxsy 27
