February 3, 2012

As Ridgway wrestling enters the District 9 team duals this Saturday, Ridgway's co-captains reflect on head coach Gary Gerber's last home match which took place Tuesday night at Ridgway Area High School.
The trio of co-captains have a cavalcade of accomplishments within the Ridgway wrestling program. Senior Corey Bush is a 2-time district champion, 3-time regional qualifier, 2010 regional champion and 2-time state placewinner. Bush compared his time with the program to a roller coaster ride without many of the valleys.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Gov. Tom Corbett professed his early spring preferences just prior to Punxsutawney Phil's 126th annual prognostication early Thursday morning at Gobbler's Knob, but as history has shown, the Seer of Seer relies on nothing else except than his own instinct.
The result, as read by Vice President Mike Johnston: "As I look at the crowd of Gobbler's Knob, many shadows do I see; so six more weeks of winter it must be."
When asked if he was pleased with Punxsy Phil's prognostication, Corbett replied, "No. Now we've got to get PennDOT ready."
