Panthers take second place in 3A state championship

When Kohl Battleson’s shot sank through the net, so did the hearts of the Powell Panthers.

Star Valley’s buzzer beater sent the Panther boys home Saturday afternoon as the runners up in the 3A boys basketball tournament in Casper.


Panther aim to lead cheer in Casper

With less than a week to perfect their routines, the members of the Powell High School cheer team are aiming to bring home a trophy from the State Spirit Competition in Casper.

The Panthers will perform in both the stunt and non-stunt competitions March 6 at the Casper Events Center.

The Powell Panthers swimmers and divers endured the long bus ride over the Big Horns Thursday, on their way to the 3A state swim meet in Gillette.

The Panthers placed fourth out of the 11 team field.


For Christians and Jews, it’s Jerusalem. For Muslims, Makkah. For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya. But for those who find their religious experiences on top of mountains adorned with iced-over waterfalls, it doesn’t get any holier than Shoshone’s South Fork.


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.

Panthers close in on second place

The Powell Panthers’ boys’ basketball team is getting hot at the right time as seeding for the 3A West regional tournament starts to take shape.

LaPierre named top swimmer, Rodriguez top assistant coach

Technically, it’s only second place, but the Powell High School boys’ swimmers and divers feel like winners following the 3A West conference meet.

“They were pretty motivated to swim in front of their home town,” said assistant coach Jerry Rodriguez. “Being home and rested, and not traveling…that definitely helps any team.”

Powell Panthers complete season sweeps of Lyman, Mountain View

The Panthers are sitting in a tie for second place in the 3A West conference following a weekend that saw them beat their opponents by a combined 41 points.

A week after embarking on a winless road trip to Star Valley and Jackson, the Powell High School boys’ basketball team beat No. 3 Lyman and Mountain View at home. The two-game stretch marked the first time all season Powell has won consecutive games since the last time they faced Lyman and Mountain View. A third-straight game was won against Cody Jan. 11.

Powell hosts conference meet

After competing in three meets over five days, the Powell High School swimming and diving team is preparing for this weekend’s 3A West conference meet.

The meet will be at the Powell Aquatic Center Feb. 8-9. Friday’s preliminary events start at noon and Saturday’s finals begin at 10 a.m.

Of my six years in Sacramento, I’d say about a total of four of them were spent as a single man*, and for the most part, it was awesome.

I had the same roommate/best friend for most of those years and he, too, spent most of his days sans-girlfriend. This made for many awesome “guy nights” that played something like a drawn-out movie party montage complete with beer, laughter, fruit-chucking (NOT a euphemism!) and beer.
