Some of the state’s most recognized names in sports ranging from football to softball, and the memory and recognition of a collegiate cross country team are among newest class of inductees into the Wyoming Sports Hall of Fame.

Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss, longtime girls softball coach Ray Sanchez, the sibling trio of Corte, Ryan and Megan McGuffey are part of the class. So are the eight members of the University of Wyoming cross country team who died in an automobile accident in 2001, along with coach Jim Sanchez and the student-athletes who finished the season.

BRONC / LADY BRONC SOCCER SPLIT CONFERENCE OPENERS

BRONC / LADY BRONC SOCCER - The Broncs and Lady Broncs opened conference play last night with matches against the Gillette Camels.

The Lady Broncs fell behind the number one ranked Camels 1-0 in the first half as they tried to battle back in the second half but Gillette would score two more goals and win the game 3-0.

Lady Broncs Head coach Tom Racette says it was a tough night against a good team.

Even though it was their first loss of the season they are playing for more than just winning the conference opener.
