Boys eye top three state finish

After seeing a fantastic, if somewhat unexpected, performance at the 3A West Conference meet Feb. 9, fans of the Powell High School swimming and diving team will be rooting for an equally impressive encore this weekend.

The Panthers will travel to Gillette Thursday afternoon for the 3A State Championship meet. The two-day meet will pit state qualifiers from 11 Wyoming 3A schools.

Coming off a second place conference finish in front of their home crowd, the Panther swimmers are faster than they’ve been all season. Powell will boast a 13-man squad, each of whom swam at least one personal best time at conference.
