For the first time in years, Powell’s boys and girls golfers are expected to be in the running for top individual and team honors at this weekend’s Class 3A State Tournament.
The event tees off at 9 a.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday at Worland’s Green Hills Golf Course. With good weather in the forecast and a well-kept course, Powell High School head coach Troy Hildebrand expects to see very good scores.
Powell High School’s tennis teams will be looking to avenge some earlier matches at this weekend’s regional tournament in Gillette.
“We’re looking for some stories — some people who beat people who they’ve lost to,” said PHS head coach Ray Bieber. “We’re certainly capable and we’ve gained a lot of experience and we’ve improved a lot, so we’ve just got to make it happen.”
A series of career-best rounds boosted the Powell High School girls golf team to the Class 3A conference championship this weekend, while the boys’ squad took second-place honors at Evanston’s Purple Sage Golf Course.
Feds allege Cardwell sought passport under different name
Former Powell Valley Healthcare CEO Paul Cardwell is now considered a fugitive after he reportedly dropped off the map. Cardwell is awaiting trial on criminal charges alleging he embezzled nearly $848,000 from the healthcare organization.
Despite several close matches, Powell High School’s tennis squads took just one win from Cody last week.
The Broncs swept Powell 5-0, while the Fillies took four of five matches at PHS on Thursday. PHS head coach Ray Bieber had said the matchup with Cody — “They’re very well-coached, just an excellent team” — would tell the Panthers and Lady Panthers where they stood.
Four people received enough votes in the Aug. 21 primary election to run for mayor against Powell City Councilman Don Hillman in the general election. None of them will run against him.
Hillman was the only candidate to file for Powell mayor last spring, but the Nov. 6 general election ballot has two potential ballot slots — meaning someone could have taken that second position via write-in votes.
