No delays expected for holiday weekend

With an extended winter season and a sudden spring deluge of rainfall, the folks in charge of managing the Shoshone National Forest are offering a glimmer of sunlight. Despite the adverse weather, no delays are anticipated with regard to the opening of services and facilities in advance of the holiday weekend.

Powell Pioneers head coach Mike Jameson would love for his team to be able to play a game. Heck, the third-year skipper would love to be able to practice outside.

“It’s been a challenge,” Jameson said of recent weather conditions that forced the team to declare a rainout for both its scheduled home opener on May 21 and the team’s first conference doubleheader against Lovell, which was to have taken place Tuesday night.

Powell boys claim state title

For the fourth time in six years, Powell High School claimed the state title in Class 3A boys’ track and field. The Panthers endured a windy, wet and, at times, snowy weekend to outlast Douglas for an 11-point margin of victory (137.5-126.5).

“The weather wasn’t fantastic, but I thought the kids did a fantastic job of stepping forward and competing,” said Panther head coach Scott Smith. “If you look at our times and distances, they’re not bad at all considering the conditions we faced.”

Panther girls take second

The Powell High School girls scored their highest finish at a state track meet since 2000, scoring 69 points to finish as the Class 3A runner-up. The Panthers topped everyone except Park County rival Cody.

“It’s great for our girls,” said Powell head coach Scott Smith. “It has been a number of years since we’ve brought home a girls’ trophy.”

Wild comeback gets team to Saturday contest

All season, Powell head boys’ soccer coach Travis Rapp was adamant in his belief that the Panthers were a top-five program in Class 3A. That faith was rewarded Saturday as Powell wrapped up the season with a 6-2 victory over Torrington in the consolation final game in Sheridan.

“I kept saying we were a top five team,” Rapp said. “The boys just had to wait for state to prove it.”

Panthers seek perfect ending

Both Panther track teams could come home with hardware

If there’s strength in numbers, the Powell Panthers should look absolutely overpowering when they step off the bus Thursday morning in Casper. After combining for just shy of 400 team points in regional competition last weekend, the Panther boys’ and girls’ track teams are on a short list of squads capable of winning team hardware at state.

“I’m excited about our prospects,” notes Panther coach Scott Smith, whose team has returned home with a state title in three of the last five seasons. “It should be a good battle between us and Douglas on the boys’ side with Cody and Torrington as dark horses. For the girls, everyone will be chasing Cody and then it looks like us and Glenrock battling for second.”

Pre quarterfinals injury bites Powell soccer

A tough state quarterfinal draw for the Panther boys’ soccer team became tougher when Powell learned it would likely be without senior playmaker Dan Katz. An injury Katz suffered during Powell’s 4-0 play-in contest against Rawlins last Friday was diagnosed as a torn meniscus.

“It doesn’t look like Dan’s knee is going to allow him to play,” said Panther soccer coach Travis Rapp. “He’s sat the last two practices and I am planning at this point to not have him.”

Girls second, teams face busy week ahead

The Powell High School boys rolled to a 3A West regional title over the weekend while the Panther girls placed second. In doing so, both teams assured that fans planning to make the trip to Casper for this week’s state championships will be plenty busy.

“The kids just did amazing,” said Panther track coach Scott Smith, who possibly could be accused of an understatement.
