Kids from 9 to 14 were ready for the 28th Annual Hershey's Track Meet at Scott Field in Sheridan at 4:00 pm Tuesday. Then at precisely 4:07 pm as the first boy made his standing jump into the sand and others lined up for the softball toss - guess what? Yes, the rain began to pour down and lightning strikes near the stadium forced a cancellation for the day.
Three days of wind and rain couldn't dampen the spirits of the 2011 4A Wyoming State Soccer Champions who are seen here with Senior Captain Zack Will pointing to "State Champion" on their well deserved award.

This last weekend was State track for Sheridan High School. Starting Thursday the 19th going through Saturday the 21st the team competed in track and field events. Athletes did there best to get points for the team despite the snowy weather on Thursday then rain and wind on Friday and Saturday. All the athletes went out and competed like the weather wasn't an issue.
For the first time ever the Sheridan Broncs are the Wyoming State High School Soccer Champions. Sheridan came from behind to take the title from last years winners the Laramie Plainsmen with two goals in three minutes to seal-the-deal 2 to 1.
With time running out Buffalo's Mattie Reid makes a header into the goal for her second score of the day off of a bounced ball from the corner kick by teammate Kaitlynn Armstrong. Buffalo's two scores in about 5-minutes after being down 4 to 0 to the Jackson Hole Lady Broncs started too late and when time ran out they were down 4 to 2.
Friday with time running out and rain pouring down in a scoreless game the Broncs send a corner kick high in front of the goal where the ball is deflected away from the goal into the leg of Sheridan's Zack Wiil who drills it back past the Riverton goalie for the only score of the game.
