Lander, Cody shut out Panthers

First-year Powell boys’ soccer coach Travis Rapp senses a breakout game is coming. He just wishes it would get here soon.

Instead, the Panthers’ skipper was left shaking his head after his team dropped a 1-0 decision at Class 3A No. 2 Lander on Thursday and followed it with a 5-0 loss to No. 4 Cody on Saturday afternoon.

Experienced lineup hands Powell 7-0 defeat

The proverb states that there’s no substitute for experience. The members of the Powell High School girls’ soccer team found out firsthand just how true that is during a 7-0 loss to Buffalo last Friday.

“Buffalo’s a real tough team,” said Panther coach Brett Hanlin. “They played in the finals last year and most of that team was back. You look at their roster and they have at least 10 seniors on their team.”

There are a lot of things Wyoming guide books warn hikers about — bears, mountain lions, bacteria in the water. None of them warn about oobleck.

For those of you without a child or who may have forgotten your Dr. Seuss, oobleck is this green substance that sticks to everything. While many are probably under the impression the 1950 Caldecott winner is a work of fiction, the truth is that Wyoming is full of oobleck.

Girls third as season gets started

The Powell Panthers fired out of the blocks on the 2011 track and field season on Saturday. Competing in Cody for the first meet of the season, the Panthers surpassed the state track qualifying standards in 11 events.

Powell’s boys captured a dominating 46-point victory in the boys’ varsity standings. The Panther girls placed third in the eight-school meet.

PHS strikes  before third-ranked Bison get rolling

The Powell Panthers dropped a 5-1 non-conference decision to third-ranked Buffalo in Friday boys’ soccer action in Powell. The loss sets the Panthers at 1-3 for the season.

“This wasn’t a 5-1 game,” Panther soccer coach Travis Rapp said afterward. “I thought we played them a lot tougher than what the final score showed.”

‘It was good to see both of them get some attention for the things they’ve done on the floor’

Sophomores Megan Smith and Valerie Lesu each picked up some post-season recognition for the Northwest College women’s basketball program. Trapper head coach Janis Beal noted both were deserving of the honors they received.

Smith was tabbed for both all-region honors within Region IX and all-conference honors in the Wyoming Community College Athletic Conference.

Four days before the first scheduled outdoor meet of the season, Powell High School track and field coach Scott Smith gazed out the front doors of the school building. A steady mixture of rain and snow greeted his eyes.

“Hope it gets better by Saturday,” he said. “But it doesn’t look good right now.”

Worland Jamboree gives fans first look at squad

The Powell Panthers kicked off the 2011 boys’ soccer season in Worland. The busy Saturday saw the team defeat 3A newcomer Rawlins while falling to 4A’s Rock Springs and Green River.

“We saw a lot of things that we’ve been working on the last two weeks, and we also saw some things that we need to work on and improve at before our next game,” said new Panther coach Travis Rapp.

Team defeats Rawlins, ties Star Valley
