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.

Erickson, Klassen qualify at Montana’s state finals  

Two Powell High School students qualified for the National High School Finals Rodeo over the weekend in Kalispell, Mont.

Graduating PHS senior Skyler Erickson and junior Jalisa Klassen each advanced to nationals by placing in the top four of their event(s) at the Montana High School Rodeo Association State Finals in Kalispell’s Majestic Valley Arena.

Through the first seven games of the Powell Recreation softball season Cody Seamless Siding sits atop the standings with a 6-1 record.

My Auto and Woodward Tractor Beavers both sit at 5-1 and Prime Power is the last team with a winning record at 4-2.

LARAMIE — With 10 All-America honors already under his belt, this weekend’s NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships may seem like old hat to the University of Wyoming’s Mason Finley. But Friday will be the Cowboy senior’s last chance to capture a title to which he has come tantalizingly close during his collegiate career.

Two Powell Panther boys were named finalists for the Milward Simpson Award.

Hayden Cragoe and Garrett Lynch are among the five Wyoming graduating seniors who are eligible to win the annual honor, given to the most outstanding male and female athlete in Wyoming prep sports.

The award will be announced June 21.
