Riverton will be Panthers' homecoming opponent
Powell High School's homecoming festivities, originally scheduled for the week of Sept. 29 through Oct. 4, have been changed, announced Jeff Jones, PHS activities director.
Late last week, Jones said homecoming festivities have been rescheduled for Sept. 15-20. The move was made to allow more PHS students to take part in the events during the week of homecoming.
“There had been plans to have homecoming the week of Sept. 29 through Oct. 4, which meant all of our student-athletes would be home except for our tennis players. This also meant the tennis student-athletes would miss out on the bulk of the homecoming activities for the second consecutive year. By moving homecoming to the week of Sept. 15-20 and making a few minor adjustments in our calendar, we are able to have all of our student-athletes at home for the homecoming activities planned that week.”
For the PHS football team, the change means Riverton will be the Panthers' homecoming opponent instead of the Star Valley Braves. That game against the Wolverines also will serve as the home opener for the Panthers, who play road contests against Worland (Sept. 5) and Buffalo (Sept. 12) during weeks one and two of the season. PHS's matchup with Riverton is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m.
Because of the schedule adjustment, Jones noted that a time change has been made to the Lady Panthers' swim team schedule for Friday, Sept. 19. The Lady Panthers, who host Cody that day, now have a scheduled 4 p.m. start time. That meet was originally planned for 5 p.m.
“By moving the start time up one hour, it should give the swim team time to compete then go to the football game,” Jones said.
To keep track of the Panthers and Lady Panthers, Jones said fans can access PHS's sports schedules atwww.highschoolsports.net. The schedules on that website are updated as needed, so they reflect changes to schedules as soon as new information is submitted by officials at PHS. He also noted that non-athletic events pertaining to PHS are included in the master schedule at www.highschoolsports.net.
“If you are someone who likes to have up-to-date schedules for all activities (athletic and non-athletic) at PHS, I strongly encourage you to check out the website www.highschoolsports.net,” Jones said. “Once you get to the opening page, type in our zip code (82435), then you will have access to a current, real-time PHS activities calendar. You also can click on ‘My Account' at the top of the screen to set up a very simple account. This would allow you to be immediately notified anytime there are schedule changes made at PHS.”
Schedule change notifications from www.highschoolsports.net can be set up so that they are sent to one or more e-mail accounts. Also, the option is available to have notifications sent to a cell phone via text message.
