Panther boys take top honors in 3A West, girls runner-up

The Powell High School boys' track team scored points in every event this weekend to pick up the 2010 track title in the 3A West region in Jackson. Powell's girls had an oustanding Saturday to rise from fifth to second in the final standings to earn regional runner-up honors.

“The kids had a great weekend,” said Powell head coach Scott Smith, who again was named the 3A West boys' coach of the year. “I was really happy with the way the kids came out and performed. We had a ton of personal records and qualified more than we expected. We just had a great meet.”

Urbach tests wrestlers' mental, physical toughness

It's not often that the photo of a furry, white harp seal strikes fear into a person. Last Monday, however, it did just that to a number of young wrestlers at Powell High School.

The harp seal image, one of many photos of docile-looking seals taped to the window next to the entry way leading into PHS head coach Nate Urbach's classroom, wasn't exactly the scary part. It was more a case of what it represented — SEAL Day — an event that has become a tradition for the Panther wrestlers.
