Pioneers head to Casper Thursday

Final regular-season tourney has Colorado flavor

Originally scheduled as a standard eight-team, two-pool tournament, the format of the 2010 Mike Devereaux baseball tournament in Casper this weekend was forced to make a late change following the decision by Denver Playball to withdraw from the event. The Powell Pioneers are scheduled to make their first-ever appearance in the tournament this week.

“They had a team pull out of the tournament, so now it'll be more of a round-robin tournament,” said Powell Pioneers head coach Mike Jameson, whose team will appear in the tournament's first game at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Powell is scheduled to play Smoky Hill, Colo., at 3 p.m., then turns around to play SOCO at 5:30 p.m. The Pioneers are also scheduled to face two other Colorado teams at the tournament —Grandview at 1 p.m. on Friday and Fort Carson at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

The Pioneers will wrap up their tournament appearance at 1 p.m. on Sunday against in-state foe Torrington.

“It gives us a chance to see a higher caliber of competition which will hopefully help us out down the road,” said Jameson.

The Pioneers, currently 27-11-2 on the year, will open postseason play in three weeks in Cody.

After spotless pool play, bats silenced

The Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team settled for runner-up honors at the 2010 Heavy Metal Classic baseball tournament on Sunday. After a perfect 4-0 performance in pool play, the Pioneers came up on the short side of a 2-0 loss to Billings Select in Sunday's title game.

“We didn't make the adjustments we needed to at the plate,” said Pioneers coach Mike Jameson, who saw his team strike out 12 times in the championship game. “We didn't get their pitcher out of his rhythm.”

Vezain wins all-around rodeo title

Cowley youth qualifies in three events for nationals

Cowley's J.R. Vezain captured the 2010 Wyoming High School rodeo boys' all-around title and earned the right to compete in three events at the High School National Finals Rodeo later this summer. Vezain is the defending high school national champion in bareback riding.

Not surprisingly, it was Vezain's skill in that event that helped fuel his all-around title during the 2010 season. Vezain was the 2010 state bareback champion, amassing more than 3,000 points during the high school rodeo season in that particular event.
