It hasn’t worked out. Yet.

Brett Smith’s initial foray into the NFL has been a failure, but that doesn’t mean his decision to leave college a year early was wrong.

University of Wyoming fans were disappointed when the former Cowboys’ quarterback was overlooked during three days and seven rounds of the NFL draft, but were given reason to celebrate when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Smith as an undrafted free agent shortly after the final pick was made.

Just five days after former Powell High School track star Kyle Sullivan won the Mountain West Conference’s decathlon title, he had one thing on his mind.

“I just want to go out and do it again,” Sullivan said in an interview with the Tribune.

The Cubs boys and girls traveled to Lovell for the conference track meet on May 10  and then to Riverton on May 13 for the Best of the Best meet.

Lander originally was scheduled to host the Best of the Best, but weather moved the meet to Riverton.

The Powell High School boys’ soccer team is a healthy first-round favorite as the Class 3A State Tournament begins today (Thursday) in Jackson.

The Panthers open at 9 a.m. with a match against Pinedale for the third time this season.

Powell is 2-0 against the Wranglers after beating them 7-0 in the season opener March 22 and again 5-2 on the road May 3.

The Powell High School track and field teams will count on a deep and diverse group of athletes as the Panthers seek state glory this weekend in Casper.

The Panthers are the only team in Class 3A to have an athlete qualify in every event at the state meet.

Defense will be key to success in Jackson  

When the Powell girls kick off their first-round match of the Class 3A State Soccer Tournament at 2 p.m. today (Thursday) they will be facing a daunting, but not unbeatable, opponent.

Pioneers pounded in debut

Team awaits return of three starters  

An undermanned and inexperienced Powell Pioneers team was no match for the Sheridan Troopers in Sunday’s season-opening doubleheader.

Powell, playing without at least three starters, lost 12-5 and 12-2 against the AA Troopers.

The road to state was never going to be an easy one.

There was an extra stop along the way, but by Saturday’s end, Powell beat Torrington in Lander to get to Jackson.

The Powell High School girls’ soccer team advanced to the Class 3A state tournament on the heels of a 1-0 victory against the Trailblazers (7-6-1, 2-2 Southeast) in Saturday afternoon’s qualifying game.

State your case

Girls search for goals as team gears up for playoff  

The PHS girls’ soccer team finished the 2014 season unfinished.

A 16-game regular season schedule wasn’t enough for the Panthers either to qualify for or to be eliminated from state title contention, and the girls will play Torrington in Lander on Saturday in a do-or-die playoff.
