The board voted to authorize the district to begin planning for the move following discussion of alternatives presented by Todd Wilder, coordinator of support services for the district.

From tight end to artist, Cooley keeps busy

On the football field, Chris Cooley’s hands have earned him a living as a tight end. The two-time NFL Pro Bowl selection has been said to have hands capable of catching any ball thrown his direction.

On this day, however, Cooley’s hands are being employed for a different purpose. Starting with a lump of clay, Cooley’s hands work and shape the material as it spins around on a potter’s wheel. A subtle application of pressure here, a touch there, and suddenly a work of art springs to life.

Powell Panther wrestler Randy Andrews took on top wrestlers from around the nation and brought home a 3-2 record from a prestigious national tournament at Virginia Beach, Va.

Wrestling at 160 pounds, Andrews was among 67 high school juniors competing in the bracket during the three-day tournament. Nearly half of them had medaled in state tournaments and 13 had won one or more state championships.

Leaner Panther teams still strong

Skeleton crew delivers third meet title for Powell boys

Even when less than full strength, the Powell Panthers demonstrated on Saturday that they are still a formidable opponent on the track oval.

With a lineup trimmed by injury and absence and tailored down still further to account for the wet conditions at the start of the meet, the Panthers’ boys’ track team captured its third team title in as many meets with a 149-122 victory over host Lovell on Saturday. Park County rival Cody placed third with 117.5 points.

The Powell Panthers turned in a strong performance in less-than-ideal conditions on Friday as they placed third out of 11 teams at the Worland spring golf invitational. Panther Brian Morse tied for eighth place with an 18-hole total of 79.

“We had a very good day in conditions that, while typical of spring golf, were far from ideal,” said Powell coach Troy Hildebrand.

Trappers have mountain to climb in the spring semester

Northwest College interim rodeo coach Dan Mortensen leads the Trappers into the start of their spring schedule when his squad travels to Montana State University. Competition in Bozeman opens today (Thursday).

“I think things have gone well,” said Mortensen, who took over following the mid-season resignation of Ryan Vander Pluym. “We have some good kids. They’ve been hitting it hard in practice for the last month. Everyone seems to be making progress, and that’s what I’m striving for.”

Panther soccer falls to Worland

The Powell Panthers continued their early-season tour of Class 3A’s top five programs on Tuesday, losing a 5-1 decision to fifth-ranked Worland. The Panthers slide to 1-6 overall this season with the defeat.

Another 1-2 finish for Powell track

Panther boys cruise to title at Worland

The second meet of the track season looked very much like the first. Powell’s boys destroyed the nine-school field, posting an almost 90-point margin of victory. The Panther girls placed second behind state power Cody.

Senior Kyle Sullivan led the way to the boys’ team title with three event wins for the Panthers. Sullivan cruised to victory in both the 110-meter hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles. He also captured the top spot in the high jump.
