Weather permitting, four games scheduled

After struggling to a 2-4 opening record that featured several makeshift lineups, Powell Pioneers head coach Mike Jameson is looking forward to being able to field a full-strength lineup this weekend in Billings.

When Josh Cragoe coasted to a halt beyond the finish line of the boys’ 4x400 relay in Casper last Saturday, he unofficially brought the curtain down on another academic year’s athletic calendar. A whirlwind of activity that began in August will now take a couple months’ siesta before firing up and beginning anew.

Girls seventh after struggles

The Powell High School boys’ track team captured the 2012 Class 3A state runner-up trophy with a clutch performance in the final event of the state track and field championships. It marked the third time in four years the Panthers lined up for the 4x400 relay with a trophy riding on the outcome.

Powell blanked in Sheridan

The Powell High School boys’ soccer team departed for state tournament play in Sheridan hoping for a slice of school history. They returned home empty-handed after the Panthers were dispatched by eventual state champion Jackson and Cody.

Panther throwers will be a factor in Casper

The Powell High School track teams qualified 50 event slots for this week’s state track and field championships in Casper. Of those, 11 come in either the discus or the shot put, clustering a significant chunk of both the boys’ and girls’ team entries in just two of track and field’s 17 events.

Panther boys have goal at state soccer

One year after celebrating a consolation title in Sheridan, the Powell High School boys’ soccer team is returning with a bigger objective in mind. In a wide open state field, the Panthers are looking to make waves on the championship half of the bracket.

Panther standout to play ball in Billings

Powell High School senior Chase Partridge has signed a letter of intent to continue his basketball career as a member of the Rocky Mountain College Battlin’ Bears this fall. Panther head coach Mike Heny announced the signing recently.

Powell earns 50 slots at state meet

The Powell Panthers boys’ and girls’ track teams finished third in a talent-packed 3A West regional meet on Saturday. Between the team’s weekend performances and a smattering of automatic qualifications during the regular season, Powell will compete in 50 event slots at this week’s state championship meet in Casper.

“This is the highest quality meet I’ve seen at the regional level,” said Panther track coach Scott Smith.

Rawlins forces Powell to work overtime

The Powell Panther boys are heading back to the 3A state soccer tournament in Sheridan this week after posting a 2-1 overtime victory over Rawlins on Saturday. The win came during play-in tournament action in Riverton.
“It was tight as I expected, but closer than I wanted,” said Panther coach Travis Rapp following his team’s victory. “At halftime, I told the boys they could make it easy on themselves and score a goal or let Rawlins hang around and they’d have a tough match until the whistle. My boys seem to like to do it the hard way.”

Shootout loss ends soccer season

In the mind of Panther soccer coach Brett Hanlin, the 2012 edition of Powell girls’ soccer is probably the strongest team the school has fielded. Unfortunately, following a shootout loss to Torrington on Saturday, the Panther girls will have little to show for that status.
