For two weeks following the state Special Olympics Fall Games in Casper, several members of  the Powell Panthers Special Olympic team could be seen wearing their medals in the halls of their schools.

Eight swimmers qualify in 15 new events

The Powell High School boys swimming and diving team added 15 more state qualifications in two meets last weekend.

It’s 5:45 a.m. and everything is very real.

You know how great sleeping in feels? I think it feels so good only as a counter balance to how awful it is to wake up early.

Seasons greetings, everyone. For those wondering, yes, I am the Rudolph Reindeer. You probably know me as the red-nosed child star who saved Christmas by lighting Santa Claus’ sleigh one particularly nasty Christmas Eve many years ago.

Boys’ swim team adds seven qualifications against Lander Tigers

For the third time in eight days the Powell High School boys’ swim team faced off against the Lander Tigers, but for the first time this season the Panthers did so from the comfort of home.

Lander defeated Powell in Saturday’s dual at the Powell Aquatic Center 114-66, but the Panthers continued to rack up qualifying times.

The Powell Panthers committed 14 turnovers and shot 31 percent from the field in a 61-50 loss to the class 2A Lovell Bulldogs Thursday night at Powell High School.

Looking to head into the winter break with a winning record, the Powell Panthers (2-4, 1-1) were unable to sustain a consistent offense or come up with timely stops in the frustrating loss.

Proposed revisions would lessen academic penalties

The punishments given to students who violate the Park County School District No. 1 alcohol, tobacco and drug policy may change under revisions to the current school code.

The new policy, which would reduce the number of out-of-school suspension days and reduce academic penalties, is designed to punish those who break rules while preventing them from falling too far behind in classes.

It was a tale of two drastically different games for the Powell High School boys basketball team this weekend.

Powell split its first two home conference games, beating the Jackson Broncs 51-36 Friday night and then losing to the Star Valley Braves 59-39 Saturday afternoon.

The stats show two drastically different Panther teams, though neither game was Powell at its best.


Powell High School senior Tess Mitchell signed a letter of intent to play golf at Montana State University Billings Nov. 20.

Mitchell said she’s excited for the opportunity to play in college – an opportunity she wasn’t fully expecting.

When last week’s 3A boys basketball poll came out, it heralded the Powell Panthers as one of the league’s top teams.

The way varsity head coach Mike Heny sees it, the Panthers have plenty of work to do to earn that honor.
