Jameson, Geiser conclude careers as first-teamers

Four members of the Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team that successfully defended its Class A state title and finished as runner-up at the Northwest Regional tournament earned all-state honors for their efforts this season.

Three other Region IX teams also ranked

The Northwest College women's volleyball team will begin the year ranked No. 25 nationally after the NJCAA released its pre-season Division I volleyball poll. The Trappers are coming off a 27-10 season a year ago that culminated in a Region IX North title and an appearance at the national championships.

Northwest College head coach Flavia Siqueira returns eight sophomores from her 2009 team that finished with a 1-2 record at the national tournament.

Despite Northwest's returning core of players and success in the 2009 season, the nation's pollsters predict a challenge in the Trappers' road to a title defense. Longtime Region IX North powerhouse Casper College (32-10 in ‘09) opens the year ranked No. 18. Laramie County (28-9) begins its fall calendar holding the No. 21 ranking in the nation.

Perennial national title contender Western Nebraska (42-4), which plays in the southern division of Region IX, is No. 5 to open the year.

The College of Southern Idaho (32-6) holds the No. 1 ranking to begin college volleyball season. They'll be followed by Missouri State-West Plains (27-9), Salt Lake (29-9), Miami-Dade (32-5) and Western Nebraska. Rounding out the top 10 are Iowa Western (42-6), Blinn (29-4), San Jacinto-Central (32-9), Hillsborough (30-10 and Temple (23-22).
Northwest's lone national tournament victory came against Temple last season.

The next 10 starts with North Idaho (28-5) at No. 11, followed by Frank Phillips (29-13), Eastern Arizona (21-2), Pratt (19-14) and Seminole State (26-15). Nos. 16-20 show Panola (28-9), Seward County (26-11), Casper, Wallace State-Hanceville (34-6) and Florida State-Jacksonville (32-6). The last five spots in the poll are held by Laramie County, Spartanburg Methodist (10-19), Midland (23-14), Yavapai (26-15) and Northwest.

Also receiving votes in the first poll of 2010 were Barton (22-12), Lee (17-13) and Palm Beach State (26-12).

The Northwest College Trappers open the 2010 volleyball season on a challenging note. Northwest College travels to Twin Falls, Idaho, on Aug. 27-28 to participate in the College of Southern Idaho tournament. Southern Idaho and Salt Lake are among the teams slated to appear in that tournament field.

Primary election is even more important than usual

Today is primary day in Wyoming.

By the end of the day, Republicans and Democrats will have chosen their candidates for the major offices at the state and county levels, and we all will know what our choices will be, come November.

Every election day is accompanied by editorials of the importance of voting, and the Tribune certainly isn't going to break that tradition, especially this year in light of the crowded fields in a couple of races.

Statewide, most of the attention is on the Republican race for governor. With seven candidates running, the eventual nominee is certain to win the votes of a minority of Republican voters. While only four of the candidates seem to have a reasonable chance of winning, votes won by the other three may play a critical role in deciding who wins, because the final tally probably will be close.

Closer to home, 11 Republicans are contending for three nominations to the Park County Commission. As with the governor's race, the three nominees are likely to have won the support of a minority of the voters, and the margin of victory is likely to be thin.

Finally, there's the proposed 1-cent specific purpose tax to finance upgrading of West Park Hospital in Cody. That tax may pass or fail on the basis of how much support it receives in Powell.

In short, it's the kind of election where every vote truly will count, and yours might be the vote that makes the difference.

We urge everyone to cast their vote today.
