Drama aplenty to open year

Early 2010 treated fans to titles, near-misses

(Editor’s note: This is the first in a three-part series recapping the major local sports accomplishments of 2010. The series will continue in Thursday’s edition.)

State and national glory, the pursuit of it and the bitter agony of nearly attaining it dominated Powell sports headlines at the start of the 2010 calendar year. Powell High School and Northwest College athletic teams combined to give local crowds plenty of reasons to jump to their feet and cheer.

Team second in rankings behind Worland

Thirteen Powell High School wrestlers appear in the WyoWrestling.com Class 3A rankings as schools break for the holiday recess. Included in that number are five Panther grapplers who currently hold down the No. 1 ranking in their division.

Wrestlers Robert Friday (119), Jimmy Seckman (152), Olie Olson (160), Randy Andrews (171) and Trevor Griffeth (285) will begin 2011 sitting atop the polls.


It was the Wednesday before Christmas at the Powell Tribune. The Sports Guy looked up and he felt himself swoon.

“My goodness,” he exclaimed, “it’s the month of December. Christmas is near! How could I not remember?”

Meeteetse native earns top PRCA honor

Meeteetse’s Dusty Tuckness has been around rodeo his entire life. So, more than anyone, he could appreciate what it meant earlier this month when he was named the PRCA bullfighter of the year.

Panthers fall to No. 1 teams

Top squads in 2A, 3A take down Powell

After spending more than 20 minutes building a nine-point lead on Class 2A’s top-ranked Lovell Bulldogs, the Powell Panthers watched as it all came unraveled in the span of 10 as the team fell 55-50 in boys’ basketball action on Thursday.

Trappers split duals to end 2010

No. 2 North Idaho pushes past NWC

Second-ranked North Idaho overwhelmed No. 6 Northwest College 27-12 in a meeting of NJCAA wrestling heavyweights on Friday in Couer d’Alene, Idaho. The Trappers rebounded on Saturday to close out the 2010 portion of their schedule with a 24-17 victory over No. 12 Southwestern Oregon.

“It was nice to get the win at the end of the semester against Southwestern Oregon,” said Trapper head wrestling coach Jim Zeigler. “We had some guys who wrestled well against some tough competition, and we had some guys who saw they need to work on some things and get better against that caliber of competition.”

League rules on Quake goalie incident

Team forfeits three wins

Yellowstone Quake team officials announced they will be required to forfeit three wins as the result having an over-age player on their roster. The ruling was handed down this past weekend by the North Pacific Hockey League (NORPAC).

“We expected this,” said Quake head coach Craig Furstenau. “It didn’t come as a surprise to us.”

SPORTS GUY: A winter flurry

Quick hits and short bits in an attempt to clear my notebook and my mind, just in time for the holiday season:

• It’s hard to say who had the more positive weekend, basketball-wise around Powell this past week. The Trapper women picked up a pair of huge conference wins on the home floor while both Powell High School teams took to the road to begin 3A West play. Both came home with 2-0 records.

• Don’t think the Panther boys’ 2-0 start to 3A West play went unnoticed either. The school picked up a pair of votes in this week’s WyoPreps.com boys’ basketball poll. The team hasn’t cracked the top five yet, but simply getting recognition is an indication that things are off to a good start for head coach Mike Heny’s sophomore campaign.

Quake rumble into new year

Team batters Butte in first post-Christmas contest

Seven Yellowstone Quake players scored goals, including three during a four-minute span of the third period, as Wyoming’s only Junior A hockey team returned from the Christmas break with an 8-1 thrashing of Butte on New Year’s Eve. The game was the first action for both clubs in two weeks.

Evan Dixon scored a shorthanded goal 11 minutes into the first period to open the scoring for the Quake. Tyler Torkelson and TJay Lozier added goals before the first intermission, giving the Quake a 3-0 lead.

Trapper women split Arizona games

Strong shooting buries South Mountain

The Northwest College Trappers returned from Arizona with a 1-1 split of hardwood action. NWC opened its second-semester schedule with an 81-58 win over South Mountain before falling at NJCAA Division II No. 7 Mesa the following night by a 76-47 final score.

“Mesa was perhaps the best team we’ve seen all season,” said Trapper coach Janis Beal. “They were quick. They had good post players. They pressured us on defense. They were the real deal.”
