www.LovellChronicle.com October 14, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle[ 9 F|yi.ng high DAm) PeCK Lovell seventh-grader Beau Green goes high for a pass only to have a Greybull defender knock the ball away at the last second Saturday morning during a middle school football game in Lovell. Rocky Mountain Middle School Lady Grizz finish up season BY CHERYL JOLLEY The Rocky Mountain Lady Grizzly vol- leyball team traveled to Cody last Thurs- day for the last game of the season before conference tournament action. The eighth- grade A team fell 21-22, 10-21, and the B team won 21-19, 22-20. The seventh-grade A team also fell 21- 18, 19-21, 11-21. The B team played four games, which were played by the sixth- grade, or "C" team because Cody has so many girls, Coach Julie Winland reported. They won the match 19-21, 21-17, 21-16, 21-16. CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT The girls fought hard in tournament action Saturday, Oct 9. They matched up against fourth-seeded Cloud Peak in the first game, quickly besting them 21-10, 21- 17, then battled first-place seed Meeteetse, losing 21-11, 22-24, 11-21. This set them up to play for third and fourth place against Ten Sleep. Rocky won 21-19, 13-21, 22-20, taking third place in the tournament. "The girls played hard through the whole tournament and I am very proud of them," Winland said. She added that the B squad lost both of their games, but no de- tails were available at press time. Eighth-grade netters participating in the tournament were: Maddie Crawford, Mikayla Asay, Mikaela Hocker, Alana Senn, TaiLyn Miller, Jennifer Parker, Den- ice Escalante and Courtney Tyacke. The B team consisted of Kaitlyn Hayes, Kelsea Mayfield, Marissa Arnold, Livia Higgins, Lindzy Thomas and Shania Foster.

The latest outing for the har- riers came Friday when they com- peted at the Powell Invitational, which was held at the Powell Country Club. Junior Colin May won the meet with a ",time of 18:12, coach Caleb Sanders'deported, running well on a cou#se he described as "a hilly course, a fun course." Sanders had not received of- ficial results as of Tuesday but said senior Kenneth May fin- ished in the top 10, running in the 19-minute range. He said Pe- ter Moncur ran well and "didn't DAVID PECK Lovell freshman Kim Shumway glides down the fifth fairway during the Rocky Mountain Invitational on Sept. 20 at Foster Gulch. miss a beat" after running well at Wyoming Indian earlier in the week, recording a time in the 22-minute range. Freshman Der- ek Phelps ran in the junior var- sity race and had his best time of the season, finishing in around 30 minutes, Sanders said. In the varsity girls race, freshman Kim Shumway placed third, nearly catching second- place Kim Holliday of Cody for second. She ran in the 21-min- ute range, Sanders said. Su- sie Shumway placed eighth and Meryk McArthur nearly placed in the top 10, finishing 114. Alys- sa Geiser did not run while nurs- ing a sore knee. In the middle school race, Sanders was pleased that A.J. Dickson placed fourth after re- covering from a lower back injury he suffered earlier in the season. Dickson ran in the 13-minute range, Hunter Tippetts in the 15-minute range, Sanders said. "A.J. is a highly motivated runner," Sanders said. "He has a promising future based on his de- sire to improve." Running strong on the girls side were MacKenzie Jue and Mylee McArthur. REGIONAL MEET Lovell will host the 2A West Regional Cross Country meet to- day (Thursday) at 4 p.m. at Fos- ter Gulch. The girls will run at 4, followed by the boys at around 4:40, Sanders said. The course is a different lay- out from the traditional double loop at Foster Gulch, Sanders said, starting on the first green and finishing .just west of the clubhouse. "It's a full 5K," he said. "It should be a true indicator of where they're at." Lovell, Rocky Mountain and Wyoming Indian are expected to compete, Sanders said. He said Wyoming Indian is again the team to beat in the boys race, with Lovell and Rocky vying for second. Lovell and WIHS will battle for the girls title, he said. WORLAND INVITATIONAL After not competing for more than a week, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs competed at the Worland Invitational on Thurs- day, Sept. 30, and Sanders said the team was a bit sluggish. "Of all the courses, this one seems to be the most true 5K," he said. "It's not hilly. It's accurate. It seems like the times should be fast, but they aren't. We ran almost a minute slower than at Foster :Gulch (on Sept. 20). Colin May placed third at Worland with a time of 17:53.53 after winning the Rocky Moun- tain Invitational 10 days earlier at 16:56 against some of the same competition. "Mentally, we weren't as pre- pared at Worland," Sanders said. "We need to do some more men- tal preparedness work. Some runners have almost been plan- ning how the race should go, and that's a no-no. It's good that they're excited, but my general philosophy is that that's a big no- no. You can't control what others do in a race." May was third out of 49 var- sity runners and Kenneth Mon- cur was 174 at 19:22.22. Brother Peter Moncur ran 23:36.38. Der- ek Phelps ran the junior varsity race in 32:58.44. On the girls side, the Lady Bulldogs suffered from the loss of sophomore Amanda Shumway, who missed the race with con- tinuing Achilles tendonitis. "It's a carryover from several months ago," Sanders said. "It's tough to recover from. "She's our top runner on the girls side, and it doesn't look like she'll be able to run at State. She's in a lot of pain and the state course (in Douglas) is hilly. Hills aggravate it. That will dampen our prospects as a girls team." Kim Shumway placed fourth at Worland out of 37 runners with a time of 21:16.97, and Su- sie Shumway finished 114 at 22:54.31. Meryk McArthur was 194 at 23:23.62, Alyssa Geiser 344 at 27:10.06. Sanders said Kim Shumway was strong and lost to "three tough runners" including the two best runners in Class 3A in Della Lyle of Buffalo and Anne Brine- gar of Cody. He said he was also pleased with the performance of older sister Susie. "She's been really consistent this year," Sanders said. "Expe- rience helps. She doesn't get as worked up and doesn't over-think things." In the middle school race, A.J. Dickson placed 134 in the boys division with a time of 13:48.91, and Hunter Tippetts was 174 at 15:08.75. On the girls side, MacKenzie Jue was 174 at 16:49.25 and Mylee McArthur was 22 "d at 20:38.47. WlHS MEET The team competed better at Ethete on Oct. 5, Sanders said, although both of the team's top runners - Amanda Shumway and May - did not compete. "It was a lot better meet for us," he said. "We talked about the mental aspect of running, and some of the kids applied the things we talked about. And we've started to taper in our training." Just before the race, as May was warming up, he felt a pain in his hip and did not run, which was disappointing, Sanders said, because May loves the course. "He was fine yesterday," the coach added on Thursday. Kenneth Moncur placed ninth with a time of 18:27, and Peter Moncur ran 22:32. "Kenneth applied some good things," Sanders said. "He was determined to maintain a good pace over the last mile. He ran smart on the first mile and that allowed him to maintain his pace over the second half of the race. "Peter felt good. He's been applying some good principles. He was strong." Phelps ran a time of 33:31 in DAVID PECK Lovell senior Peter Moncur looks like he's feeling the burn during the Rocky Mountain cross country meet on Sept. 20 at Foster Gulch. the junior varsity race. Kim Shumway ran her best race of the season to place second for the Lady Bulldogs with a time of 20:57, Sanders said, trailing only Alexis Oakes of Riverton. "Not only did she get a great time, but she did it running alone. There was no one running with her. She had to motivate herself." Susie Shumway placed third at 22:20, McArthur sixth at 22:51 and Geiser 22 "d at 26:41. The Lovell girls won the meet with 25 points, beating Jackson (33 points), Wyoming Indian (36), Thermopolis (47) and Ly- man (82). In the middle school race, Dickson ran 13:47, Tippetts 15:40, Jue 18:33 and Mylee McAr- thur 23:49. Lovell JV gridders win a pair BY DAVID PECK The Lovell junior var- sity football squad had a good week, clobbering the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies Saturday and topping the Thermopolis Bobcats in Thermop on Monday. Coach Brandon Jol- ley said the Bulldogs beat Rocky Mountain 50-12 at Robertson Stadium Sat- urday, taking a 25-0 lead before the Grizzlies got on the scoreboard. In the first half, the Bulldogs scored on a 29- yard run by Dimas Pati- na, a short run by Dylan Hultgren, a 12-yard run by Patina and a seven- yard run by Dillon Pickett before Jake Jones broke the ice for the Grizz on a two-yard run. The Grizz added a long pass play for a score. Jolley couldn't recall all of the touchdowns in the second half but said Kurk Welch scored on about a 12-yard run and Chase Rasmussen scored on a quarterback sneak. At Thermop Monday the Bulldogs led at the half 7-0 on a touchdown run by Hultgren, then added second-half touch- downs on a five-yard pass from Hultgren to Adam Beck and a 30-yard pass from Hultgren to Morgan Baxendale. Jolley said the touchdowns were set up by strong running by Pickett, and he added that Brandon Dickson booted two of three PATs. He said Beck had an interception in the second quarter, Baxendale a pick in the second half after Hultgren tipped the pass, Hultgren an interception of his own, Nathan Bal- lard a pick after batting the ball to himself and Austin Ellis an intercep- tion off a tipped pass. El- lis also blocked a punt. The Bulldogs will host Worland for a freshman game Tuesday at 5 p.m. Lovell junior Morgan Baxendale sprints upfleld after catching a pass from Dylan Hultgren during Lovell's 50- 12 win over Rocky Mountain in a junior varsity football game Saturday. Giving chase are Jake Jones (21) and Joey Carroll (10).
