Deep PHS track team battles for state title

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.

Powell’s 30 competitors were scheduled to leave for Casper at 4 p.m. Wednesday, giving the team time to settle in and rest before events begin at noon today (Thursday) at Kelly Walsh High School.

While year-long stalwarts Garrett Lynch, Tori Sleep and Kalei Smith eye consecutive state titles, underclassmen Kalina Smith, Anissa Warner and potentially others are vying for their first. Both the boys’ and girls’ teams figure to be in contention for the overall championship.
