Girls seventh in tight team race

The Powell Panthers endured intermittent rain, wind chills in the upper 30s and generally miserable weather conditions to place second at their home golf invitational on Friday. The defending state champion Powell boys carded a team score of 367 to place second behind Sheridan.

Brad Zangs, the former head coach and general manager of the Albert Lea Thunder of the North American Hockey League and Sioux Lookout Thunder of the Superior International Junior Hockey League, has agreed to a two-year contract to serve as head coach of the Yellowstone Quake. The team announced the hiring via a statement on its website.

Title at Big Sky region puts team back in national finals position

After momentarily dropping back to third place in the Big Sky region’s rodeo standings, the Northwest College women roared back into position to automatically qualify for the College National Finals Rodeo with a championship finish last weekend in Helena, Mont.
“The women just jumped up and man were they dialed in,” said Trapper head coach Del Nose. “My god, they were on.”

Medeiros, Crawford extend college careers

Leonardo Medeiros and Legofi Crawford, two forwards from the Northwest College Region IX champion men’s soccer program, will continue their playing careers next fall at four-year universities. The pair recently signed letters of intent.
Medeiros will head south to continue play for the Scorpions of the University of Texas at Brownsville. The NAIA-affiliated school compiled a 13-6-2 record this past autumn, finishing as the conference runner-up in the Red River Athletic Conference and advancing to the NAIA national championship tournament.

PHS Girls take second over weekend

A school record tumbled as the Powell Panther boys captured the championship Saturday at the Lovell Invitational track meet. The Panther girls secured still another runner-up finish for the year.

Sophomore Garrett Lynch penned his name to the Powell High School record book with a winning heave of 167-9. The toss surpasses Dusty Harvey’s previous school-best throw, which had survived on the record books since the spring of 1993. The throw also added 13 feet onto Lynch’s season-best throw.

Powell back at .500 with 1-0 victory

The fifth-ranked Powell boys’ soccer team blanked Cody for the second time this season with a 1-0 victory on the Broncs’ home field on Saturday. The win improves the Panthers to a season mark of 6-5 overall.

Tyler Oullette’s late second-half goal provided the only scoring in a tensely fought game between Park County’s two 3A schools. Oullette’s winning strike came after he received a pass inside the 18-yard box from teammate Cooper Wise on the left wing. Oullette then one-timed the ball past a sprawling Cody keeper for the game’s only score.

Boys fall 3-1, girls 4-0 to Warriors
The Powell High School soccer teams celebrated senior night, but not much else on Tuesday as Worland came to town and returned home with a sweep of the Panther teams. Powell fell 3-1 in boys’ action to the No. 3 Warriors. The girls fell by a 4-0 margin.

The Powell Panthers found a home in the latest Wyopreps’ coaches and media boys’ soccer poll. After knocking off a ranked Star Valley team last Saturday, Powell debuts in the rankings as the No. 5 team in Class 3A this week.

Head coach Travis Rapp’s team received votes from four of the seven voters in this week’s poll. The Panthers garnered one fourth-place vote and three fifth-place votes to secure the No. 5 position.

The defending state champion Powell High School golf team opened its spring season last weekend with a pair of runner-up performances. After a months-long winter layoff, the Panthers seem in no hurry to relinquish their leadership role in 3A golf.

Powell opened its spring at Riverton. Despite rain, sleet and lightning in Powell that day, the Panther golfers were able to find healthy spring weather conditions that enabled the team to compete.
