GREEN RIVER — After his Homecoming week ended in heartbreak seven days earlier, it was fitting that Powell High School quarterback Carter Baxter wore the biggest smile on Friday night.

He earned it.

Panther swim team wins in Cody, Worland

Written by Gib Mathers

The Lady Panthers swim team is looking strong with five wins in seven meets, including defeating Cody in a dual on Thursday and claiming the Worland Invite Saturday.

However, head coach Luke Robertson is not counting wins, rather he’s tallying the number of girls qualifying for state Oct. 17 and Oct. 31.

Trio of Panther golfers earn All-State honors

Written by CJ Baker

Powell High School’s golfers took home as many individual medals as the best teams at the Class 3A State Tournament.

Three PHS seniors — Pax Mitchell (tied for third on boys side of the tourney) and Carli Brown and Mikala Fulton (fifth and sixth for the girls, respectively) — earned All State honors at Cody’s Olive Glenn Golf Course on Friday and Saturday.

Trappers still battling setting woes, says Pohlman   

Just enough isn’t enough for Shaun Pohlman.

Although the newly ranked No. 20 Northwest College volleyball team swept Rocky Mountain College’s visiting JV team in a make-up match Tuesday at Cabre Gym, a 25-14, 25-18, 25-17 victory, the Trappers’ coach is looking for more decisive efforts.

Nicci Bloomer held out her hand, and Mattie Larsen used it as a plate for her bread as she spread mayonnaise for a sandwich.

True friendship at its best.

For the past four years, unique bonds like Bloomer and Larsen’s have grown through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Wyoming and the Northwest College volleyball program. And are proof the partnership is working.

Powell runners go back-to-back

Written by Tom Lawrence

The Powell High School cross country teams ran in meets on back-to-back days this week, something veteran head coach Cliff Boos said was new to him.

“We’ve never had it before,” Boos said. “First time in all my years of coaching.”

Time was slipping away for the Panthers.

And then, Carter Baxter’s inadvertent mistake cost the Powell High School football team the few precious seconds it had left.

PHS volleyball sweeps rival Cody

Written by Joe Alberico

If the Powell High School volleyball team goes on to win its second straight state championship this year, it will be victories like Thursday night’s that had Panther Country believing the entire way.

Powell put aside the pressures of a rivalry showdown and the crowd noise of battling student sections to earn a convincing 25-15, 25-7, 25-9 win over visiting 3A West Conference foe Cody.

The young men playing football for Powell High School are human beings.

They’re football players, but they’re human beings who just happen to play football. Amidst the tackles, touchdowns and testosterone, I think it’s easy to forget the gridiron gangs we follow religiously on Friday nights are still living, feeling human beings.

Tennis splits with Cody

Written by CJ Baker

The Powell High School girls tennis team trumped Cody again on Tuesday, while Cody got a bit of revenge on the Powell boys.

Playing in Cody, the Lady Panthers won four of five matches — as they did on Sept. 4 — while the Panther boys went 2-3; the boys had beaten Cody 3-2 earlier in the year.
