Panther relay team torches school record

The Powell High School girls’ 4x800 relay team shattered a school record that had stood for 22 years in Cody on Friday. The foursome of Desiree Murray, Kassey MacDonald, Sierra Morrow and Tally Wells carved more than seven seconds off the previous Powell best.

“They wanted to go after it today and they ran it down,” said Panther assistant track coach Tracy McArthur. “Running the girls’ race along with the boys’ helped because it gave them someone to chase.”

Powell soccer breaks out against Pinedale

Ten goal outburst allows several to see action

After a frustrating season of near-miss opportunities against ranked opponents, the Powell Panthers were in need of a confidence boost in advance of this week’s state tournament play-in game. Pinedale happened to be in the wrong spot at the wrong time.

The Panthers filled their prescription for a win with a one-sided 10-0 victory at Pinedale on Friday. Seven players scored goals as Powell limited the host Wranglers to just one shot on goal over the 80 minutes.

Pioneers fall to open season

Team drops 12-2 games to Troopers

The Powell Pioneers opened the 2011 baseball season in Sheridan on Saturday, dropping a pair of doubleheader games by identical 12-2 final scores. Both games were stopped after six innings.

“It’s the early part of the season and the games were closer than the scores show,” said Pioneer head coach Mike Jameson. “We had a few key plays we didn’t make and a few key hits that we didn’t get. It could have been a lot different ball game.”

Smith, Ramos earn Trapper awards

Petersen, Lesu named male and female athletes of year

Northwest College basketball players Megan Smith and Chantz Ramos were honored on Tuesday night as the winners of the Trapper Awards for the 2010-2011 academic year. The announcement came during Tuesday’s ceremony recognizing the achievements of the college’s student-athletes over the past year.

“What can I say about him?” Northwest College men’s basketball coach Andy Ward asked rhetorically. “He’s an extremely hard worker. We were fortunate to have him in our program. He does so much more than just compete on the court.”

Track classic performances

Sullivan wins hurdle titles as seven compete

Kyle Sullivan and Josh Cragoe finished 1-2 in the 110-meter hurdles on Monday at the Wyoming Track Classic in Casper. Sullivan added the 300-meter hurdle title as well, taking nearly a second and a half off his season-best time in the process.

The performances were among eight top-three finishes by Panther athletes at the Wyoming Track Classic. The event had been scheduled to be held last Friday, but the threat of poor weather conditions prompted meet officials to push the event back to this week.

Panther soccer teams fall to Lander

Powell High School girls’ soccer coach Brett Hanlin could only shake his head on Tuesday afternoon. He’d just watched his Panthers dominate play for many of the 80 minutes, but fall by a 1-0 count to Lander.

Two hours later, Powell boys’ coach Travis Rapp felt pretty much the same way.

Panther teams swept by Cody

Boys, girls fall in Northwest quadrant action

After waiting most of the day to see if the weather would allow Friday’s soccer games with Cody to take place, members of the Powell Panthers boys’ and girls’ teams waited an extra hour after arrival before dropping both halves of the varsity doubleheader.

Powell’s girls fell by a 3-0 final count. The boys were on the short side of a 5-1 decision.

Weather the big weekend winner

Cancellations, postponements abound

A busy April ending on the local sports calendar grew considerably less cluttered as the weather prompted numerous cancellations and postponements.

The Powell High School golf tournament was cancelled after school officials awoke on Friday morning to a cover of 1-2 inches of freshly fallen snow. That same snowfall also produced the cancellation of Friday afternoon’s track invitational at Thermopolis.

NWC coaches see little impact locally

A winter rule change by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) regarding international players is expected to have a significant impact when it takes effect in two years. Locally, though, Northwest College officials aren’t seeing many changes to the way things are done on campus.

Pioneers' next chapter starts Sunday

Pioneers open 2011 season with plenty of questions

After producing 94 wins the last two seasons, back-to-back state titles and Northwest Region tournament appearances and a 2010 regional runner-up pennant, the Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team finds itself with something it hasn’t had for a while.
