NWC slams Sheridan in basketball

Big first half lifts Trapper women to win

The Northwest College Trappers exploded for 53 points in the first half of Tuesday’s women’s basketball contest at Sheridan College and returned home over the Big Horns with an 87-67 sub-region victory. The win improves Northwest to 8-10 overall and 1-1 in sub-region play.

“This was a good win for us,” said Trapper head coach Janis Beal. “The girls came out really ready to play from the beginning. We were able to get a good lead and any time you shoot 60 percent in the first half, that really helps.”

Panther boys enter rankings

PHS basketball team makes debut in fifth

After a wild overtime win last Saturday, the Powell High School boys’ basketball team makes its first appearance of the season in the Wyopreps.com 3A basketball poll. The Panthers, who have garnered votes in previous polls, appear as the No. 5 team in this week’s rankings.

The Panthers received 11 fifth-place votes from a panel of 22 coaches and media personnel. Powell, 6-5 overall this season, but 5-0 in 3A West play, is the only member of the West conference to appear in the poll.

Indoor track teams open season

PHS students shine in first competition

Numerous Panther competitors experienced success at the first indoor track meet of the season last weekend. The Powell students, competing as part of the Cody team, played a role in seven of the nine event championships recorded on the day.

Kyle Sullivan took the title in both the 60-meter hurdles and the high jump. Drew MaGill added a first-place finish in the long jump and led a 1-2-3 Powell parade at the top of the 200-meter standings.

Extra effort by PHS Panthers

Powell holds off Lander in overtime

Zane Bushnell converted a pair of late free throws to lift the Powell Panther boys’ basketball team into the lead on Saturday. From there, the team held on through a few nervous moments for a 51-50 overtime victory against Lander.

The win lifts Powell to 5-0 in 3A West conference play. The Panthers, who also recorded a 58-45 non-conference win against Rocky Mountain last week, sit alone atop the 3A West standings.

Leaders of the pack

Weekend sweep lifts Panther boys

The Powell High School boys basketball team improved to 4-5 on the season and 4-0 in 3A West conference play with a pair of weekend victories. The Panthers defeated Mountain View by a 51-31 final count on Friday before handling Lyman 48-35 in Saturday action.

The wins, combined with action elsewhere in the 3A West division, leaves the Panthers as the sole undefeated team in the conference standings entering play this weekend.

Quake narrows the gap

Win over Bozeman pulls team within two games

The Yellowstone Quake scored a 6-1 victory over Bozeman to narrow the gap between themselves and a spot in the NORPAC hockey playoffs to two games. A 3-1 loss to Billings prevented the squad from shaving another game off that margin.

Alex Johansons’ power play goal 3:31 into the game gave the Quake an early advantage in its Saturday game against Bozeman. Hazen Ripple countered with a power play goal for the Ice Dogs just before the 12-minute mark, but the scoreboard remained tied for just 19 seconds before the Quake’s Tyler Torkelson delivered the go-ahead goal.

It isn’t Mount Everest, but right now Powell High School boys’ basketball coach Mike Heny has to feel like he’s standing on top of the world. How could he not be?

Admittedly, we’re only a little more than a quarter of the way into conference play this basketball season, but there’s already reason to smile. The Panthers currently sit alone atop the 3A West conference standings. With a 4-0 conference mark, they already have more wins in league play this season, than they had in all of their games — conference and non-conference — last season.

Baseball fields dreams in 2010

Powell teams turn heads at regional events

(Editor’s note: This is the second in a three-part series recapping the sports highlights of the region in 2010. The series started on Tuesday and will conclude next Tuesday.)

Baseball is America’s pasttime and Powell is Wyoming’s baseball capital. Anyone who didn’t know either of those facts probably didn’t spend a day at the ball fields during the summer of 2010.

One year after the Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team and the Powell Babe Ruth All-Stars baseball team invigorated the community by winning state titles and advancing to regional competition, the teams decided to make it a doubleheader. So, in 2010, both the Pioneers and the All-Stars once again captured state titles.

Trappers return to action

Arizona trips tip off second-semester schedule

Call it fortuitous scheduling or simply a case good timing. As winter weather returns to the Big Horn Basin and tempertatures are forecast to plunge well below zero, head coach Janis Beal and the Northwest College women’s basketball program are stepping off a plane in Arizona to resume play.

Flom helps keep Trapper teams moving

Athletic trainer sees a little bit of everything during the year

Behind every good race car is a skilled mechanic laboring behind the scenes to ensure the engine operates at peak performance. For Northwest College athletic teams, the “mechanic” tasked with keeping the teams performing is athletic trainer Liz Flom.

While she can often be seen on or near the Trappers’ sidelines during athletic contests, much of Flom’s true work takes place behind the scenes and out of the public eye.
