12 The Lovell Chronicle I January 26, 2012 Garrett Angell signs to play at Wyoming BY DAVID PECK For Garrett Angell, it's a dream come true. The big Lovell senior last week decided to accept a preferred walk-on offer to play football at the Uni- versity of Wyoming. The decision to attend UW came to the Lovell lineman as he returned from an official visit to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technol- ogy in Rapid City, who has been recruiting An- gell along with the likes of Dickinson State, Minot State and Dakota State. He had been in con- tact with UW offensive line coach Jim Harding for several months after he spoke with universi- ty coaches a year ago at LHS and following this season sent a highlight video and two game films to UW coaches. Coach Harding fol- lowed up and established contact with Angell, he said, noting that he and the coach have spoken of- ten by phone since then. In the end, it was sim- ply a matter of Angell's dream of playing Division I football "Not a lot of people get that opportunity, and I really wanted to," he said. He notified Harding on Jan. 18 that he want- ed to accept UW's offer to play football at the uni- versity: "Looking forward to being a Cowboy," he wrote to Harding. Angell is the son of David and Kim Angell of Lovell. "We talked about it as a family, and I said, 'I can't pass this UP. I want to play for Wyoming.'" "We said OK," father David said. As a preferred walk- on, Angell said, he will not receive scholarship mon- ey but will be guaranteed a spot on the roster next season. He will work out with the team and will redshirt next season, he said, hoping to play in the fall of 2013. He hopes to eventually earn a schol- arship and move up on the depth chart. Although he mainly played defensive tackle last season, helping an- chor the defensive line for Lovell's 11-0 state cham- pionship team, Angell said Harding was recruit- ing him as an offensive tackle. He's huge at 6-6, 330, but Angell said he wants to lose weight and work on agility, footwork and speed drills. He will train in Lovell under the tutelage of Kevin Walker, he said. Angell said he will major in computer science at UW, hoping to become a computer programmer. He plans to visit the cam- pus in late February or early March to meet the coaching staff. He will also apply for other schol- arships to help pay for his education. Angel ! has received plenty of honors during his career. He was named to the 2A Northwest All- Conference team follow- ing the 2011 season, and he received several other awards this year: 2011 U.S. Army All-American Bowl nominee, ESPN All-Wyoming team and Gridiron University All- American. He was also nominated for the Prep Star Classic All-Ameri- can game in Las Vegas. "He was a big player (6-6, 330) who plugged up the middle and made it hard to run. against our defense," Lovell coach Doug Hazen said last fall. "He also got a good push and put on some pressure when we needed it." Angell finished with 35 assisted tackles, five solo tackles, two tackles for a loss and one pass breakup in 2011. His brother Brandon is an offensive tackle as a junior at Dickinson State. "It's an unbeliev- able opportunity," Gar- rett said. "It's every little kid's dream to play Divi- sion I football, and I get that opportunity."

Angell will now don the Brown and Gold of the University of Wyoming. PATTI CARPENTER RMHS wrestler Jake Loyning, shown above in a match with a Powell wrestler, is showing improvement, according to his coaches. Rocky wrestl BY PATTI CARPENTER Four wrestlers from Rocky travelled to the Lingle- Fort Laramie tournament this week. Nineteen teams entered the competition. Six were from Nebraska. Tyler Lindquist placed third in his class and Jake Jones took first in his class. Freshman Justin Smith wrestled again in the 106-pound class and went 1-3 against his oppo- nents. Coach Josh Collins is pleased that Smith was able to stay in this weight class, which he thinks provides more appropri- ately sized opponents for him. "He wants to stay in this weight class because he can see the difference in the kids he wrestles in this class," said Col- lins. "There's a difference and he knows it, and he wants to stay in this class and he should stay in this class because of size." Collins feels that Smith has definitely im- proved in his take-downs and is showing progress as a result of practice. 'You keep practicing and you definitely get bet- ter and better," explained Collins. "He is definite- ly practicing his take- downs, and getting better as a result." ers show progress in Lingle On the first day of the meet Smith was pinned by his opponent from Sho shoni in the first period and by Tyler Lindquist. He wrestled a third match where he pinned Zach Denton in the first period. On the second day he was pinned by his opponent in the second period. Lindquist also wres- tled in this weight class and took third in the class at this tournament with a record of 3-1. On the first day he pinned his opponent in the first pe- riod. On the second day he pinned two ;opponents but lost to a wrestler from Nebraska on a 15-7 score. Lindquist has only lost two matches all season. "One kid he beat, Nathan Martinez, was ranked fourth in the state," said Collins. "Tyler pinned him in the third period, so we have a lot of expectations for Tyler. He is doing well." The match he lost was a close one, where he al- most pinned his opponent in the first match and ended up wrestling three challenging rounds before being out-scored by him. Lindquist has wres- tled in this class the en- tire season and Collins expects him to continue to do well in the class. Jake Loyning wres- tled in the 132-pound. Loyning went 0-2 this meet. "Jake has continued to be a little more physi- cal with every kid that he wrestles," said Collins. "Both Coach Jones and myself believe that he is continuing to improve this season." Jake Jones placed first in the 152-pound class, winning all three matches. He pinned in two of the matches, and had a forfeit in his favor in the third match, after leading 12-2 against his opponent Martin Fitz- water. Jones has lost only two matches all season and both were very close. "There is competi- tion on that side of the state, there is no doubt about that," said Collins. "The team that took the tournament was Wright, and they have some good wrestlers on their team." Next up, the boys will travel to Greybull for a smaller tournament that is sure to attract some fa- miliar faces, as many lo- cal teams from through- out the area are expected to attend on Saturday. Wrestling begins at 10 a.m. and is expected to continue all day. Katelyn Doughtyforgedthrough the 200 freestyle at the "Wnt ,Fiesta" USA Swimming meet Sunday, Katey placed fourth in the girls 11-12  group. ; , Barracudas earn personal bests at the 'Winter Fiesta' in Powell BY PAT PARMER Eight swimmers from the North Big Horn Barracudas traveled to Powell Sat- urday and Sunday for the Powell Swim Club's "Winter Fiesta" meet. Coach Ross Fuller commented that his youngest swimmers had "sparkling swims" throughout the weekend. Colby Doughty raced to personal bests, slashing almost 20 seconds from his 200 free, more than 17 from the 100 breast and 10 seconds from the 100 backstroke. Fuller commended Richard Spann for his continuing improve- ment and said that Spann took more than seven seconds off his 200 freestyle time. Swimming eight events over the long week- end, Anna Fuller posted personal bests in six events and took more than nine seconds from her previous 100 IM time. "Ben Zeller impressed everyone with his intensity and fortitude, swimming the 'beast' events, including the 1650 freestyle and 400 IM. He took 9.73 seconds off his best 200 free time and posted times in all events he swam," Coach Fuller said. Still 12 years old, Aly Schneider has qualified in all but two events in the 13- 14 age group in preparation for aging-up prior to the winter state meet in March. Coach Fuller said, "Aly has really put it to the metal at this meet. She finished first, second or third in all events, and I'm really proud of her."
