Panthers win 8 titles, Lynch breaks 3A shot put record

The Powell Panther boys won their second state track and field title in four years and the girls took second at the Class 3A State Championship Meet in Casper over the weekend.

Five Panthers took home seven individual titles, and the girls’ 4x100-meter relay team won an eighth as the PHS boys scored 118 points and the girls scored 111.

The Powell High School boys’ soccer team finished fourth at the Class 3A state tournament to place higher than any soccer team in PHS history.

PHS head coach Travis Rapp downplayed the accomplishment, which he said is a good sign for Powell soccer.

The PHS girls’ soccer team again extended its season in improbable fashion but ultimately was eliminated in two games at the Class 3A state tournament in Jackson over the weekend.

The Panthers (7-12, 2-2 Northwest) lost 3-0 to Buffalo in the first round Thursday and then 3-2 (5-4) in a consolation round game with Cody on Friday that was decided by a shootout.

It hasn’t worked out. Yet.

Brett Smith’s initial foray into the NFL has been a failure, but that doesn’t mean his decision to leave college a year early was wrong.

University of Wyoming fans were disappointed when the former Cowboys’ quarterback was overlooked during three days and seven rounds of the NFL draft, but were given reason to celebrate when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Smith as an undrafted free agent shortly after the final pick was made.

Just five days after former Powell High School track star Kyle Sullivan won the Mountain West Conference’s decathlon title, he had one thing on his mind.

“I just want to go out and do it again,” Sullivan said in an interview with the Tribune.

The Cubs boys and girls traveled to Lovell for the conference track meet on May 10  and then to Riverton on May 13 for the Best of the Best meet.

Lander originally was scheduled to host the Best of the Best, but weather moved the meet to Riverton.

The Powell High School boys’ soccer team is a healthy first-round favorite as the Class 3A State Tournament begins today (Thursday) in Jackson.

The Panthers open at 9 a.m. with a match against Pinedale for the third time this season.

Powell is 2-0 against the Wranglers after beating them 7-0 in the season opener March 22 and again 5-2 on the road May 3.

The Powell High School track and field teams will count on a deep and diverse group of athletes as the Panthers seek state glory this weekend in Casper.

The Panthers are the only team in Class 3A to have an athlete qualify in every event at the state meet.

Defense will be key to success in Jackson  

When the Powell girls kick off their first-round match of the Class 3A State Soccer Tournament at 2 p.m. today (Thursday) they will be facing a daunting, but not unbeatable, opponent.
