/2 I The Lovell Chronicle I December "18, 2014 Fuller a state qualifier for Powell Panthers BY SAM SMRH Two brothers from Cowley, Jared and Seth Fuller, are participating on the Powell High School boys swimming team this season and found success at their first meet of the season against Lander Fri- day at home. Seth Fuller, a junior from Rocky Mountain High School, qualified for the 3A State Swimming and Div- ing Meet by placing sec- ond in the 50-yard freestyle swimming with a time of 24.67. Fuller also qualified for state in the 100-yard backstroke by placing sec- ond with a time of 1:03.62. Fuller also was a part of the 200-yard medley relay that placed second with a time of 1:56.23. "This is exception- al for the beginning of the season," Powell coach Jer- ry Rodriguez said. "This would be mostly credited to him swimming year round with his USA swim team in Lovell." Jared Fuller, a fresh- man at Rocky, placed eighth in the 100-yard free- style, swimming in with a time of 1:07.67. Fuller also placed seventh in the 100- yard backstroke with a time of 1:15.98. Jared Full- er was the leadoff in the 200-yard freestyle relay and swam in with a time of 31.16. The team placed sixth with a team time of 2:08.64. "One of our team goals is to get all members qual- ified in as many different events as possible, giving us more options when we get down to State at the end of the season," Rodri- guez said. Next up for the Full- ers and the Powell swim- ming team is a quad meet in Cody Friday and a dual meet in Lander Saturday.

The ball Kitchen used to roll his 300 games was a Roto Grip Sinister. "I was nervous as I have ever been since my first 300 game," Kitchen said.
