PUNXSUTAWNEY — The president of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club said that Punxsutawney Phil, the world's only true weather-forecasting groundhog, isn't afraid to take on the Super Bowl again this year.
Bill Deeley, Groundhog Club president, said all they can do is do their thing.

Harlan was recognized before the game as the team's only senior on this year's team.
With the game out of reach, Harlan was able to hit a short bank shot with about 30 seconds left and then added a buzzer-beating layup to end the game and punctuate the victory.

January 31, 2015

JOHNSONBURG – The Johnsonburg Rams (10-9) may be peaking at the right time after a 60-43 win Friday night over visiting Curwensville (5-12).
The Rams were led by Kevin Benson's 23 points, and teammate Zane Hodgdon followed with 12 in the win.
"I thought we played team basketball," said Johnsonburg head boys varsity basketball coach Bill Shuey. "We hit the open guy, fed the guy that gave us the best chance on the floor to score and we weren't rushing our shots.
"We rebounded well and played well on defense. We had some lapses but it was still pretty good."
