Teams don’t win three straight state titles because they take the term “offseason” literally.

While some teams might use the summer for rest, recovery and recreation, Powell High School wrestlers — back-to-back-to-back Class 3A champions — are staying close to the mat, even if it means venturing far from home.

Three Trappers qualified the short round and the Northwest College men’s team finished 24th at the College National Finals Rodeo last week in Casper.

Northwest scored 197.5 points to finish just two and a half points behind University of Wyoming (200) at CNFR, which went from June 15-21.

Powell faces both division Foes in four conference games this week 

The Powell Pioneers went 2-2 at their home tournament over the weekend but came away with a big win that won’t show up in the standings.

Because I am a good son — or at least one who does the bare minimum in an effort to avoid being a bad son — I gave my dad a call on Father’s Day.

The conversation went from lawn mowing to fantasy baseball to work (mine, since he’s recently retired) and eventually to the World Cup.

It’s been seven months since Riley Stringer has played a football game, but his stock has never been higher.

The all-state two-way lineman for the three-time state champion Powell High School football team is spending his summer training and competing to grab the attention of as many college football programs as possible.

Hayden Cragoe spectacular in return to the diamond  

Hayden Cragoe returned to the lineup and the Powell Pioneers scored at will as they beat the Douglas Bearcats twice in a Tuesday-evening doubleheader.

LARAMIE — University of Wyoming head men’s basketball coach Larry Shyatt’s contract has been extended through April 2019.

Shyatt recently completed his third season at Wyoming since returning to UW in the spring of 2011 and his fourth overall season at Wyoming, having also served as head coach of the Cowboys for the 1997-98 campaign. Shyatt has led the Cowboys to a 78-50 (.609) record during his four seasons as head coach, has taken Wyoming to postseason play each of those four seasons and has dramatically improved the academic standing of the men’s basketball student-athletes during his tenure.

Incoming Powell High School senior Bryce Bott will compete at the National High School Finals Rodeo in Rock Springs July 12-18.

Bott qualified in calf roping by taking third place at the Montana High School Rodeo Association’s State Finals June 6-8 in Kalispell, Mont.

“I was really happy just to make it because I hadn’t made it yet,” Bott said.

Team falls to 5-10, looking for arms  

The Powell Pioneers went 2-3 at the Buffalo Wild Wings Invitational in Billings, Mont., over the weekend to complete a disappointing 2-6 week of baseball.

Powell (5-9, 2-0 Northwest) found itself in the midst of every type of game last week. The Pioneers won a high-scoring close game against Gillette and lost two by a single run. The team won by 14 and then lost by 17 in the same day.

Those looking for some fun in the sun this weekend in the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area should be on the lookout for an influx of Webelos, Wolves, Bears and even Tiger Cubs.

If found face-to-face with one of these clever critters, do not be alarmed, they are just part of the Big Horn District Cub Scout Day Camp.
