Freshman Heinen brings size, basketball IQ to Panthers

You know, there’s a saying for athletes like Carson Heinen.

The NFL’s best teams are preparing for the playoffs, but Powell’s sharpest football minds have already claimed their titles.

In a year of continued streaks, fast beginnings and triumphant finishes, a long-awaited first may have trumped them all.

For the first time in school history, the Powell Panthers girls basketball team reigned supreme in Wyoming.

Chris Boucher had only one year to make his mark on Northwest College basketball, instead he left his signature on the entire nation.

The 6-10 transfer from New Mexico Junior College led the Trappers to a 31-5 record and a national tournament run that was halted in the quarterfinals, earning National Player of the Year honors in the process.

In the waters of Wyoming athletics, it was the year of Amanda Tracy.

When a voice came across the Powell Middle School PA system late in the Dec. 16 school day, the announcement wasn’t about homework, attendance or an assembly.

It was a celebration, in honor of sixth-grader Kaleb Brown’s qualification for the national Punt, Pass & Kick competition, which will be held on Jan. 2 in Indianapolis.
