Panthers finish 6-6, earn automatic bid to state  

A 1-0 victory over Worland Thursday evening was enough to clinch a postseason berth for the Powell High School boys’ soccer team.

The Panthers (6-6, 3-1 Northwest) won their quadrant and earned an automatic bid to the state tournament, both firsts for the PHS program, with the home finale victory.

PHS girls’ soccer to play Torrington for state bid 

A 6-10 record and a last-place finish in the Northwest Quadrant haven’t eliminated the Powell Panthers girls’ soccer team from postseason play.

The Panthers can still qualify for the state tournament by beating Torrington (8-5, second in the Southeast) Saturday in Lander in a win-or-go-home game.

Senior Garrett Lynch took advantage of relatively calm skies to notch a personal-best and school-record discus throw of 179 feet, 7 inches Friday afternoon in Cody.

It’s not an audio recording of appalling racist remarks. It’s not the painfully cartoonish logo that openly mocks an entire race of people. At first (and probably second and third) glance, it’s not even all that offensive.

It’s quiet and subtle, and easy to dismiss.

And that’s why exactly we need to talk about it.

The Powell Aquatic Center’s leisure pool is scheduled to reopen Saturday after a two-week closure due to a broken boiler.

Admission will be free Saturday to celebrate the PAC’s four-year anniversary.

JuliaKay O’Neill broke two records, including one of her own, as the Powell Middle School track team competed in Burlington Saturday.

The eighth-grader bested her own time in the 1600-meter run by more than 11 seconds and out-jumped a long jump record that was twice as old as she is. O’Neill also won the 800-meter run and was part of the first-place 4x100-meter relay team.

The Powell High School track and field team stood tall despite being stretched thin as the squad was split during three meets in two days.

Four Panthers placed first at the Wyoming Track Classic at Kelly Walsh High School in Casper on Friday.

If the pattern continues, the Powell High School boys’ soccer team will finish the regular season with four straight wins.

A 5-2 win over Pinedale Saturday ended a four-game losing skid that followed the Panthers’ season-opening four-game win streak.

Regular season ends with ‘toughest week’ 

A return to fundamentals propelled the Powell Panthers’ girls’ soccer team to a weekend road win, its first since April 22.

“We always have to go back to basics,” said PHS head coach Isaac Reyesmejia.

The top nine PHS track and field athletes were invited to compete in the Wyoming Track Classic in Casper Friday.

Athletes who rank in the top 10 (top eight for the 100-, 200-, 400-meter runs and all hurdles events) from Wyoming’s four classes will meet at 4 p.m. at Kelly Walsh High School.
