Local Prep Soccer, Track & Field
Written by timanderson on May 14, 2018
Over the weekend, one of the two Cody High School varsity soccer teams had to play in order to qualify for the such Wyoming 3A Classification State Tournament being held at Jackson for this year later on in the week but the other didn’t, while those particular Bronc as well as Filly outdoor track and field squads actually began postseason affairs come 2018.
It was those specific reigning Wyoming Class 3A State champion CHS boys footballers who needed to appear in a respective Regional Qualifier at a neutral site across the Big Horn Basin here amongst Worland. Back on early Saturday afternoon, those Broncs – who’d placed No. 2 among their corresponding trio of programs in the certain 3A Northwest Quadrant during this year’s regularly-scheduled campaign and thus were the second seed – shutout that Northeast’s third-seeded Newcastle Dogies 3-0 to advance. Those Cody boys are now going to face that Southwest Quadrant’s champ and therefore No. 1 seed – along with second-ranked amongst the whole Classification in 2018’s final such wyopreps.com Coaches and Media Poll from last Wednesday – Star Valley HS Braves of Afton, who automatically made State by winning their conference and didn’t have to compete among a pigtail-type game, over the first round of the culminating event late this coming Thursday morning.
Meanwhile, those defending State crown-wearing CHS girls had captured their specific 3A Northwest, so they (also) weren’t required to see any action amongst a neutral-field weekend qualifying match otherwise. The particular top-seeded along with wyopreps No. 1-ranked Fillies have a quarterfinal showdown earlier Thursday at their State tourney versus that Southwest’s second seed Riverton Lady Wolverines, who beat that Southeast Quadrant’s third-seeded Torrington Lady Trailblazers the latest Saturday in Worland to reach their culminating event among Jackson’s Hole.
As far as the Cody tracksters are concerned: they were at nearby Powell the most recent Friday plus Saturday for their certain Class 3A West Regional meet this year. Among eight teams per side total: those respective Broncs wound up No. 2 overall out of the boys squads, while those corresponding Fillies were triumphant amongst the girls programs.
Individually for those CHS boys: they prevailed among three of 18 events. Bailey Smith ran that quickest 1,600 meters, Peter Klessens topped everyone amongst the high jump, along with the Broncs being the fastest in that 4x100M relay.
On personnel notes for those Cody girls: they recorded victories among seven disciplines. Riley Smith won both her 80oM along with that such 1,600M race, Nicole Wagler captured the 300M hurdles, Grace Shaffer was best among that pole vault, Erika Larsen heaved the shot put and threw the discus each the farthest, while the Fillies triumphed in that 1,600 sprint medley
