Lady Panthers senior Maddy Hanks stood just off the track near the triple jump pit at Kelly Walsh High School, hands on her knees, catching her breath. Having finished her leg of the 1600 meter relay, the realization suddenly hit that she’d just completed the final event of her high school career.

After a slow start to begin the 2018 campaign, the Powell High School Boys’ soccer team showed steady improvement as the regular season wore on. That culminated in a overtime shootout thriller against Douglas that propelled the young team to an improbable state tournament berth in Jackson.

Undeterred by the elements, the Powell High School track and field teams continued adding medals and accolades on the third and final day of Wyoming's Class 3A state track meet.

Day two of the Wyoming State Track Meet is in the books, with the Powell High School track and field teams finishing another day of strong performances.

OK guys line up, eyes on me ... pay attention, I’m only going through this once.”

The Powell High School boys soccer team opened the Class 3A State Soccer Tournament Thursday with a lopsided 6-0 loss to Rawlins, then fell to Torrington on Friday, 4-0. That concluded the Panthers' season.

When he wasn’t wreaking havoc on opposing offenses as a defensive standout for the Montana State University Bobcats, Aaron Papich was learning the intricacies of the game from his coaches, with an eye toward one day running his own program.

Former Lady Panther track and field standout Lexee Craig continues to impress at the collegiate level. Craig earned a second-place finish in the pole vault at last weekend’s North Star Athletic Association Outdoor Conference Meet. Her jump of 10 feet, 8 inches also earned her NSAA All Conference honors for the second straight year, but was shy of her personal best of 10 feet, 9.75 inches set earlier this season.

The Powell Middle School track and field teams stormed into the Yellowstone Conference Meet in Thermopolis as a team on a mission, with three of the four teams emerging as conference champions earlier this month.

Given just one word to describe the Powell High School boys’ soccer team, for many, that word would be “young.”
