On September 16th, 2001, eight University of Wyoming cross-country athletes lost their lives in a car accident, when another UW student who was driving drunk swerved into oncoming traffic and hit their vehicle.
The Buffalo Bison football team was on the road Friday at Lander to take on the Tigers and dropped a nail-biter 14-7.
Fumbles by the Bison either led directly to scores or took the momentum out of their drives, forcing them to punt.
The Bison never seemed to get in rhythm throughout the game until midway through the fourth quarter when they finally got in the endzone but by then it was too little, too late and the Tigers ran out the clock on their final possession to take the win.
Next up for the Bison is a home game against the Torrington Trailblazers, Friday night at BHS.
At the request of the Johnson County Commissioners, the Bureau of Land Management will be presenting quarterly updates on projects, plans and other information concerning their field office in Buffalo and their jurisdictional area in northeast Wyoming.
HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL - The Sheridan Broncs built up a nice lead in Laramie Friday night then survived a Plainsmen rally and took the game 35-19 to run their winning streak to five straight at 6-1 overall Head coach Don Julian.
Seniors Riley Ryan and Gabe Dahmke missed the game because of injury and Julian says that gave some others a chance to fill and they got the job done.
