Beuster fires no-hitter

Pioneers perfect 6-for-6 over weekend

Call it stating the obvious, but Powell coach Jeff Young is rather pleased with the performance of his pitching staff this past weekend. Pioneer hurlers tossed three shutouts, including a no-hitter by Jake Beuster on Sunday, to sweep six games against Gillette, Douglas and Sheridan.

“We had one bad inning the entire weekend,” said Young. “Our pitchers threw very well. Jake's no-hitter was excellent, but everyone we threw did a great job this weekend.”

Beuster allowed individual walks in the third, fourth and fifth innings, but never allowed a runner beyond second base in a 12-0 game-one victory over Sheridan on Sunday. Buester fanned eight batters over five innings to register the Pioneers' first no-hit performance of the summer.

Tyler Dahlgren doubled in a pair of runs to open the scoring for Powell in the second inning, providing the Pioneers with all the runs they would need. Beuster and Ty England each scored three runs in the win.

The Pioneers captured a 12-run victory in the nightcap as well, winning 14-2 at Sheridan. Josh Cragoe's bases-clearing double in the second inning helped Powell to build an 8-0 lead. Gianluca Giarrizzo was a perfect 3-for-3 with two runs driven in atop Powell's batting order.

Andrew Young allowed two fourth-inning runs to Sheridan, but was never threatened as Powell supported its pitcher with plenty of runs. Young struck out nine in the contest while allowing just six hits.

Powell opened its weekend at Gillette, earning wins of 10-0 and 17-4. Scotty Jameson took the victory in game one, allowing just three hits and three walks while fanning 10 in the five-inning contest.

“We threw our top two guys in that doubleheader in order to rest them up for Tuesday night,” said Young, referring to a conference doubleheader against Cody.

Dahlgren went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs for Powell, which jumped out to a five-run lead in the top of the first and was never threatened. The Pioneers drilled Gillette pitching for 12 hits in the contest.

Game two saw Grant Geiser go 4-for-5 at the plate, including a second-inning home run, to finish with three runs scored and five RBI. Auston Carter and Jake Beuster each were a perfect 4-for-4 at the bottom of Powell's batting order as the team hammered 21 hits.

Powell led 17-1 before Gillette scored three runs in the fifth. Geiser took the win on the mound, allowing six hits and three walks while fanning seven.

The Post 26 team continued its weekend with a 10-7, 8-0 sweep of Douglas on Saturday.

Douglas grabbed a 7-1 lead in the second inning of game one, thanks in part to a trio of Powell errors in the frame. The Pioneers gradually rallied to tie the game in the sixth before plating three runs in the seventh for the win.

After the scare in Saturday's opener, the Pioneers wasted little time in removing any drama from Friday's game.

Dahlgren was in command on the mound from basically the opening pitch, allowing just two Douglas hits as he carried a no-hit bid of his own into the sixth inning. Dahlgren struck out eight in the victory.

Only three of Powell's eight runs in the game were earned as Douglas pitching struggled to find the plate.

The weekend sweep improves Powell to 19-9 overall. After three weeks away from home, the Pioneers will return to the confines of their home ballpark tonight (Tuesday) for a conference doubleheader against Cody. First pitch is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in game one.

Vincent Harold Rose

(Nov. 30, 1931 - Sept. 18, 2008)


Vincent Harold Rose, 76, of Powell, Wyoming passed away at his home on September 18, 2008 following a hard fought battle with cancer.

He was born November 30, 1931, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Harold J. and Emma Lewis Rose. He attended Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, graduating in 1958 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. During this time, Vince also served with the United States Army Signal Corps at Fort Dix, New Jersey and Fort Huachuaca, Arizona, under an ROTC commission.

Vince married Lucinda Pitcairn of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on November 5, 1955 and they had three children: David, Andrew, and Susan.

The marriage ended in divorce in 1966. Several years later, Vince was remarried to Caroline P. Gaty, and later divorced.

Vince's early career involved engineering jobs with several firms in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. Vince moved to Grand Junction, Colorado in the early '70s to work for Dixson Inc., a gauge manufacturer, where he oversaw and developed an export sales division. In 1984, Vince moved to California to pursue another job opportunity, but soon afterward established his own company, HI-Q Technology, Inc., with the goal of designing, manufacturing and selling high quality gauges.

In the mid '90s, Vince moved from California to Powell, Wyoming, attracted by a more favorable business climate and a desire to be near his son Andy. With his innovative gauge designs and extensive foreign business contacts, Vince was able to build a healthy and successful business, remaining active in its daily operations until the time of his death. He was particularly proud of having been awarded eight U.S. patents during his career.

Vince was an avid outdoorsman, introducing his family to the joys of camping, canoeing, hiking, bicycling, and skiing, instilling in us a sense of adventure and a love for the natural world

During his years in Wyoming, Vince was active in local community groups as a member of the Powell Rotary Club and the Powell Tree Board, board member of the Western Design Conference, and trustee of the Yellowstone Art Museum. He was generous in his support of the Northwest College Foundation, providing funds to help the Writers Series, NWC Art Department, SIFE Program, NWC Chorale and others.

Vince also provided support to Powell Medical Foundation, Rimrock Opera, and Billings Symphony.

Vince was preceded in death by his parents, sister Margaret, and brother Lawrence. He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Edward (Betty) Brennan of Whitehall Boro, PA, and Charmaine Rose of Concord, NH, and two brothers, Philip Rose of Laughlintown, PA, and Donald Rose of Mars, PA, son and daughter-in-law David and Cindy Rose of Powell, son and daughter-in-law Andrew and Stephanie Rose and grandson Gabriel of Powell, daughter and son-in-law Susan and Steele Wotkyns of Flagstaff, AZ, and grandsons Kyle and Mason Mann of Flagstaff, AZ, and Delaware, OH.

We extend thanks and gratitude to the many doctors, nurses, CNAs, clergy, friends, and family who prayed and cared for Vince during his courageous battle with cancer and helped him during his final journey. Dad, we love you and will miss you. God bless you and may you rest in peace.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday Oct 2, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at Thompson Funeral Home and Crematory, 111 W. Third Street, Powell, WY. Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations may be made to Powell Valley Hospice or a charity of choice.

Young swimmers gather in the deep end of the Powell High School pool to listen to Tanya Fawcett-Kay, Powell Swim Club coach, last week during practice. Throughout the week, the pool is shared by various groups, including the Powell Swim Club, Swim America, the Powell Recreation Department and Park County School District No. 1.

Current pool crowded

While watching her son learn swimming techniques in early September, Elaine DeBuhr realized how much Powell needed the eight-lane pool that recently was approved.

“I saw how busy the pool was, and I thought, ‘Thank God,'” she said. “The pool is packed. There are kids bumping in to each other in lanes. This new pool can't come soon enough.”

Each Tuesday and Thursday evening, the Powell High School pool teems with activity. As high-school swimmers finish their practice, Swim America students and Powell Swim Club members arrive.

Wolves step back into the fray

Conservation groups who filed a lawsuit last summer may be celebrating their recent victory over the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's decision to put wolves back on the Endangered Species list, but the future of wolf management in Wyoming is still very much up in the air.

“We feel vindicated in that sense,” said Franz Camenzind, executive director of Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, one of the 12 conservation-group plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit before Judge Donald Molloy in U.S. District Court. “But we also know this is not an end point.”

Since Fish and Wildlife put wolves back on the Endangered Species list and back under the agency's protection in September, the state of Wyoming would have to write new legislation to manage wolves and get the service's approval. But, first, Fish and Wildlife officials would need to provide Wyoming with a proposal.

“I'm excited about everything,” Clymer says.

However, you can find your own favorite feature on Saturday.

The library will host everyone and anyone for a grand opening Oct. 4, from 3-8 p.m. (see related story).

Lady Trappers (from left to right) Katie Gregg, Angela Schuman, Carol Martin, Rebekah DePesa and Thabata Galvao celebrate after an NWC point late in Tuesday's match against Casper College. Tribune photo by David Dickey

Lady Trappers now 24-7

Playing at home for only the second time this season, the Northwest College Lady Trappers defeated Casper College in three sets (25-22, 25-22, 25-22) Tuesday night.

With the victory, the Lady Trappers improved to 24-7 for the season and 2-0 in matches played in NWC's Hank Cabre Gymnasium. NWC also has yet to lose a set during competitions in Powell this season. That mark, however, almost got its first blemish during the third set of Tuesday's match.

After being in control for the majority of the match, the Lady Trappers found themselves trailing 5-0 early in the third set and fell behind by as many as six points before rallying late.

Season standings settled

The Park County Kart Club's inaugural season came to a close last Saturday with a number of hard-charging battles on the track. When the dust settled following last week's races, 15 different drivers had claimed first-place finishes.

During those 15 races, only two competitors sped their way to multiple victories — Bill Rentschler and Scott Heny. Those claiming one first-place finish each were Brooklyn Sweet, Cory Heny, Mallory Triplett, Taylor Daniels, Matt Sweet, Nancy Knight, Jennifer Triplett, Trevin Allen, JJ Faulkner, Landon Greer, Mike Apanashk, Mark Rentschler and Tracy Sweet.

The Powell Lady Panthers invaded the Cody pool Tuesday night and swam past the Fillies in dual competition.

Freshman Belen Quillen added her name to the list of state qualifiers while finishing third in the 500-yard freestyle, bringing the number of Lady Panthers on the state team to 10.

The Powell girls earned only four first places in the 12 events, but grabbed most of the other top-five finishes to outscore the Fillies 100-86.

Monique Zorgati won both the 200-yard and 100-yard freestyle events to lead the Lady Panthers' efforts. Diver Laura Morse earned her highest score of the season to win her event, and Zorgati, Alice Pinter, Jessica Curtis and Samantha Baker swam to first in the 200-freestyle relay for the team's other first-place effort.

Cody scored first-place points in the medley relay and the 400 relay, and double winners Betsy Whisonant, Allie Samuels and Kristi Valenzuela accounted for six other first-place finishes.

Samantha Baker and Pinter each earned two second-place finishes — Baker in the individual medley and the 500 and Pinter in the 50 and 100. Hannah Toland was second in the butterfly, and Stepfanie Thompson finished behind Morse in diving.

Six other swimmers contributed to the team score with two scoring finishes, including Kourtnie Rodgers, Alyssa Smith, Maddy Jones, Ryanne McDaniel and Jessica Curtis. Diver Emily Newlin, Anya Tracy, Sierra Baker, Jenna Hotovec and Jessica Wurzel all earned team points by placing in the top five in one event.

PHS head coach Karen Roles said a number of the swimmers earned their best times in the meet. Olivia Paxton cut 13 seconds, and Hotovec cut six from their best times in the individual medley relay, Roles said. Smith had her lifetime best swims in the individual medley and the backstroke. She narrowly missed qualifying for state in the backstroke. Samantha Baker, Curtis, Tracy, Wurzel and Rodgers also had season best times during the meet.

The Lady Panthers have one more dual meet left this season when the Worland Lady Warriors invade the Powell pool Saturday, and Roles said this weeks' schedule is benefitting the girls.

“It's nice to have a week without back-to-back meets,” Roles said. “The girls had time to rest before Cody and they can swim fresh Saturday. That should help them swim faster.”

Roles said several girls are within reach of qualifying times, some within a second or two, and have a chance to qualify this weekend. In addition, she said swimmers who have already qualified will be swimming to qualify in additional events.

After this week, the Lady Panthers have only one more regular season event, the Lander Invitational. The conference meet takes place in Kemmerer Oct. 17-18, and the state meet opens Oct. 31 in Gillette.

Saturday's meet with Worland will be the last home meet for seven seniors on the team, and they will be honored following the meet.

Swimming starts at 11 a.m. Saturday, and senior recognition will follow at about 1 p.m.
