Craig Glogowski of National Community Development Services, an Atlanta, Ga.-based consulting firm, presented the recommendations to members of the Powell Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Powell Valley Economic Development Alliance Monday. The recommendations were based on a study by NCDS conducted over the past year that included interviews, a small group development session, discussions with other stakeholders in the Powell area economy and government officials.

He complimented PHS athletes for their efforts and challenged them to be role models for their fellow students and younger kids.

PHS track teams head to 3A West regionals

The Powell High School track teams head to Jackson this Friday and Saturday for 3A West regional track competition. For the Panthers' automatic qualifiers, the meet represents a tune-up for the state meet in Casper.

For the rest of the squad, the regional meet is one last chance to earn a spot on the Kelly Walsh track when 3A state competition begins on May 20.

Cody golfer the first since 2002 to advance

University of Wyoming junior Gabe Maier, a native of Cody, received an individual bid to the NCAA West Regional golf tournament in Bremerton, Wash., on Monday. Maier is the first UW golfer to advance to regional competition since 2002 and only the fifth golfer in school history to receive such an opportunity.

The tournament takes place May 20-22 with the top performers advancing to the NCAA championships.

Maier joins Dave McCleave (1990), Pat Fry (1995), David Hearn (1999-2001) and Mike Urbatchka (2002) as the only Cowboy golfers to qualify for a regional event. The 1992 UW team remains the only golf team in school history to advance to regional competition.

Maier currently holds a 71.7 stroke average for the season, fourth-best among Mountain West Conference golfers. He owns four top-10 finishes and three top-five appearances this year. His season highlight was winning the 92-man UW Desert Intercollegiate last fall.

Maier is currently ranked No. 81 in the national GolfStat Cup rankings. His short game has received the No. 14 national rank by GolfStat's statistical breakdown.

“We are all very excited for Gabe, as he is very deserving of this opportunity,” said UW director of golf Joe Jensen. “Gabe has played really well this season and it is great to have him recognized on a national level. He earned this opportunity with his tremendous work ethic. We will prepare hard for this event and go out there to compete for a chance of going to the national tournament.”

The West Region tournament will be held on the Gold Mountain Golf Club's Olympic course, future host of the 2011 U.S. Junior Amateur championships. The 18-hole layout plays to a maximum yardage of 7,104 yards and a par of 72.

Boys take Broncs to O.T.

Powell High School wrapped up the soccer regular season last Thursday, getting swept by Cody in both boys' and girls' action. The Panther girls fell by a 4-0 final count. Powell's boys dropped a heartbreaking 1-0 decision in overtime.

“I couldn't be more proud of the way we played,” said Pat D'Alessandro, whose team kept the defending state champions off the scoreboard until fewer than three minutes remained. “You'd like to win the game after putting that much energy into it, but I can't fault anyone for the energy they gave.”
