Wrestling team continues to improve, 4-2 over weekend


Powell High School’s wrestlers put together two impressive showings at the end of last week, going 2-1 in both the Worland Quad and Lander Quad. 

The Panthers kicked things off Thursday afternoon in Worland. Despite lacking several of the team’s key wrestlers, PHS put together an overall sound performance.

Just a week after falling to Cody at home, Powell was able to defeat the Broncs in the day’s first dual, 38-36. The Panthers flipped a few matches from their last meeting against Cody, including a key win from Karson Lamb in the 195-pound class. Powell also defeated Lovell 45-24.

“It was a good day for us,” head coach Nick Fulton said. “It was a good momentum builder for us, and we were just wrestling hard.”

PHS’ only defeat in Worland came against the hosts, falling 78-0 to the Warriors. Fulton described the performance as “disappointing,” but he was still pleased with how the Panthers competed overall.

The next day, the team was closer to full strength, with seniors Seth Horton and Riley Bennett competing.

Once again, PHS went 2-1 as a team. Powell earned victories over solid Rawlins and Mountain View teams, and the Panthers’ lone loss was a 38-36 defeat to a top-tier Pinedale squad. 

Coach Fulton noted how much his squad has grown since winter break. 

“They’re some up-and-coming teams, and they were nice wins for us,” he said. “We’re starting to gain confidence, and little by little, we’re turning a corner.”

PHS will venture south to Riverton Friday for a noon quad. There, the Panthers will compete against Lander Valley, Riverton and Cheyenne East. 

Facing off against three strong programs, Fulton sees this as another growth opportunity for his team. 

“This week will be a good test for us,” the coach said. “We’re moving in the right direction, and hopefully we can keep battling.”
