Grusky Sets New Record

Congratulations to Freshman Mary Grusky for breaking the school record in the javelin with a throw of 127’ 3” in only her 3rd career Varsity meet! It is the 2nd farthest javelin throw by a female athlete of any grade in PA so far this year, and it is the 5th farthest throw in the nation by a freshman female athlete so far this season! Way to go, Mary! Punxsy Proud! (Photo: Mary Grusky and her dad, Coach Jason Grusky)
