Teamwork key as 2013-14 season starts

For the second year in a row the Northwest Trappers volleyball team will require the support of its freshmen to carry it to the Region IX Tournament and beyond.

Of the nine freshmen on the 2012-13 roster, only five have returned to the lineup as sophomores this season. Head coach Shaun Pohlman said it’s not an ideal situation, but one that can still yield successful results.

I really should be a lot better at golf.

I’m sure a lot of people share this thought, and I’m sure most of them are wrong. But, really, I can’t be this bad.

All six Powell High School fall sports teams will start practicing for the upcoming season next week.

Football, tennis, golf, girls swimming, volleyball and cross country will all begin their official practice season Monday. Each sport must complete a required amount of practice days before it can engage in competition, said PHS Activities Director Tim Wormald. Football must finish 10 practices, golf only three and the remaining fall sports must practice for nine days.

Powell golfers will try to drive straight and far so that those who are ill might not have to.

The 21st annual Heartland Golf Classic will be held Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Powell Golf Club. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Powell Medical Foundation’s effort to provide transportation to those who need help getting to and from medical appointments.


Forty-seven PGC golfers compete in two-day tournament

Jerry Herweyer carded a 155 for the lowest total during the two-day event. Zane Bushnell won the men’s championship with a 157, while Laurie Lee won the women’s championship with a 171 and one-hole playoff victory.

As a young man, Ati Bekes’ life was spent in the air.

A quarter-century later the former Hungarian Air Force pilot has excelled at most every mode of transportation man has come up with.

College football season is fast approaching and I am excited for how excited you are.

Look at you, wearing your team’s colors, driving around town in a truck with your alma mater’s decal on the rear window. You know, the cool one with the outline of the animal/warrior/intertwined letters.


Disappoint with 1-2 record in Gillette

Everything was going the way of the Powell Pioneers — until it wasn’t.

The North’s top-seeded Pioneers finished their season a day before they had hoped, with a 15-10 loss to No. 4 Gillette Friday at the American Legion Wyoming State A tournament.


The Powell Pioneers are considered a young baseball team.

With just one player ineligible to return to the team next year, many of this year’s players had room to grow and improve.

Cale Wright, 9, isn’t quite old enough to play for Powell’s American Legion team, but if he ever dons the Pioneers’ orange and black, expect him to be ahead of the learning curve.
