October 15, 2015 l The Lovell Chronicle I 11 Lovell quarterback Mat Savage fires a pass during a Lovell High School junior varsity football game against Greybull Monday, Oct. 5, in Lovell as Joey Mickelson blocks. DAVID PECK Bulldog JV gridders fall to Worland BY SAM SMITH The Lovell High School junior varsity foot- ball squad fell to the Wor- land Warriors in a close game 24-22 Monday in Worland. Lovell led 8-6 at half- time, then built their lead to 22-8 after three quar- ters. In the fourth quar- ter, the Warriors shut out the Bulldogs 16-0 to win by two. The Bulldogs’ scores came on a two-yard run by Porter Nichols and runs of 35 and 20 yards by Joey Mickelson. “The first half was slow,” coach Nick De- Witt said. “Both teams took time off the clock with long running drives. Third quarter, we start- ed ofi' strong by capitaliz- ing on two Worland turn- overs with touchdowns. We didn’t finish all four quarters and got tired.” The Bulldogs will wrap up the JV por- tion'of the season Mon- day, facing the Cody Broncs in Cody at 5 p.m. Lady Grizzly JVs fall to Riverside BY SAM SMITH The Rocky Mountain junior varsity used fresh- men to play the Shosho- ni JV s Friday afternoon and gave the Lady Blue a battle before falling in two games. Both the freshman and JV squad faced Riverside in Basin Saturday. No re- sults of the freshman game were available, but the JV 8 fell to the Riverside Lady Rebels 25-15, 25-21. Rocky will host Grey- bull for homecoming week Friday with the freshman game at 4 p.m., JV at 5 p.m. and varsity at 6 p.m. Saturday, the Lady Grizz will travel to Ther- mopolis to face the Lady Bobcats with the fresh- men playing at noon, JV at 1 p.m. and the varsity at p.m. Lovell runners tune up for Regionals BY DAVID PECK After taking a week off from competition, the Lovell Bulldogs had mixed results Friday at Powell in their fi- nal tuneup before the re- gional and state cross coun- try meets, coach Caleb Sanders said this week. “I was kind of hoping they’d race good and get back into it,” he said. “I re- ally had no expectations. I’m pleased with the girls team. The boys were so-so. But it was the girls’ season best across the board.” Senior Jaclyn Cald- well finished second in the 44—runner field with a time of 20:22.46, beating famil- iar foe Erin Wooley of Cody by seven seconds. Sanders named Caldwell as the high school female athlete of the week. “That was her best 5K time of the year,” Sand- ers said. “She beat a girl who has beaten her all year (Wooley). Jackie start- ed off just perfect. It looked like the Cody girls (Wooley and winner McKayla Moss) would pull away. “It was a blistering pace. But I had the feeling Jackie would catch up. She was chipping away at it. You could tell — in Powell you can see them a lot — every time (I saw her) huge gains were made. She passed Wooley at about the two-mile mark. It was really a good Jackie Caldwell type of race.” Sophomore sister Jes- sica Caldwell also ran well, Sanders said, placing 12th with a time of 22:10.24. “Jessica was 10th for most of the race and ran a 5K PR,” Sanders said. “She had been running in the 23s 97 ,6 in. bET’ wove 'Deuveceu. Subscrim Mow! com I l l i l qu-ZZrfi- HEWLE this season.” Sanders said he was also pleased with senior Caitlyn Lundberg, who placed 35th with a time of 25:44, and with senior Afton George, 36"h at 25:56.29. Junior Sa- vannah Jolley was 39th at 26:17.36. “That could be the best time of Caitlyn’s career,” the coach said. “She looked different. She had a good stride. The whole girls team all ran above what they usu- ally run.” Lovell finished fourth Friday with 98 points, be- hind Cody (31), Worland (54) and Powell (63) and ahead of Rocky Mountain (116). BOYS RACE The Lovell boys didn’t make the same kind of strides as the girls did but had some solid performanc- es, Sanders said. He named freshman Hunter Steenbak- kers as the male athlete of the week for his continued improvement. Steenbakkers placed 32nd with a time of 20:50.16. “He’s just steadily dropped his time,” Sanders said. “He seemed to have a little more grit and was run- ning more aggressively. He ran around 25 minutes in Cody (first meet of the sea- son) and has progressively gotten better.” Senior Jacob Newman was Lovell’s top finisher, placing fifth with a time of 17:27.80, which Sanders said was a good time but could be better. “Mentally, he could be stronger down the stretch,” Sanders said. “He showed it in Worland. I want to see if he can have a little more mental strength at the end of the season.” Sophomore Brent Sny- der placed 13th with a time of 18:42.38. “Brent is coming on,” Sanders said. “He’s been in a little slump but he’s coming out of it. He looked better.” Sophomore Ben Cornia finished 29th at 20:28.95, sophomore Kyle Wolvington 30th at 20:34.15. “That was Ben’s best 5K time,” Sanders said. “I’m still challenging Ben and Kyle to be under 20 minutes.” Freshman Brenden Lundberg finished 38th with a time of 22:15.73, junior Kyle Burton 44th at 25:08.72 and freshman JR Dickson 46th at 35:12.55. Lovell placed fourth in the boys division at Pow- ell with 93 points, just five points behind third-place Powell with 88. Cody won the meet with 25 points fol- lowed by Worland with 48 points. Rocky was fifth with 112 points. REGIONALS IN LANDER The Lovell harriers will be off to Lander Friday for the Class 3A West Cross Country Meet featuring Lovell, Powell, Cody, Land- er, Jackson, Star Valley and Mountain View. Running begins at 1 p.m. with the girls race, Sanders said. He noted that he wants to run more aggressively at Regionals this year to ramp up for State the following week in Sheridan. “1 want to use it as a springboard for State and see if we can produce better results,” he said. “It will be fun. It’s a challenging course with a massive hill on it.” 8,)! 1‘ 'erall Friday, Oct. 8 Saratoga over Burlington, forfeit ’ Riverside 24, Cokeville 0 18 3' . . .’ meoct 15 Shoshoni 63, “find River 0 seasons Uncannflnm“ Eurfington at Shoshoni, cane. ’. 5"?” .Sammmmaivemmf Cokeville at Wyn. indian, 6 pm.
