Pioneers win 3, even record

The Powell Pioneers took three of four against the Billings Angels this weekend to improve to 3-3 on the season.

Pitching led the Pioneers to two road victories Saturday while offense ruled back in Powell as the Pioneers won Sunday’s first game but couldn’t complete the sweep.

A proposal to start a wrestling program for sixth-grade students at Powell Middle School has been denied by the Powell school board.

Fairy tale takes stage at PHS

Powell High School will debut its latest theater production, “Once Upon a Mattress” Friday at 7 p.m. in its auditorium.

Male lead Josiah Hogan said he expects this show to be more accessible than “Diviners” and better received by the community.
