Karst thrives at wrestling camp

Powell wrestler Chance Karst was one of two wrestlers to earn an Outstanding Wrestler Award at the Chadron State College wrestling camp July 18.

Four Northwest College teams and seven student-athletes were honored for their work in the classroom, the NJCAA announced Tuesday.

Both Trapper soccer teams and the NWC volleyball team were named to the NJCAA’s 2013-14 All-Academic list.

Six men’s soccer players and one women’s basketball player received academic student-athlete awards, which are given to NJCAA athletes with a grade point average of 3.6 or greater.

Four former Powell Panther football players helped the North triumph over the South 41-13 at the 2014 Shrine Bowl June 14 in Casper.

Hayden Cragoe, Anthony Lujan, Garrett Lynch and Garrett Michael spent the week of June 6-13 practicing with their new team at Natrona and Kelly Walsh high schools before the contest between Wyoming’s top senior players.

Three Trappers qualified the short round and the Northwest College men’s team finished 24th at the College National Finals Rodeo last week in Casper.

Northwest scored 197.5 points to finish just two and a half points behind University of Wyoming (200) at CNFR, which went from June 15-21.
