Big Horn Rams

It took just three, but the Big Horn Lady Rams had a battle with the Burns Lady Broncs in the first game coming out on top 28 to 26 and then followed with 25 to 20 and 25 to 17 wins in round one action at Sheridan High School in the 2A East Regional Volleyball Tournament.

It took all five games for the 3rd ranked Big Horn Lady Rams to edge out the Tongue River Lady Eagles in Dayton on Thursday evening in cross-district volleyball action. After splitting the first two games (TR 25-17 & BH 25-15) TR came out on top in the third 26 to 24. But then Big Horn turned it up a notch and took the last two 25-20 and 15-11.

On Friday in game three against the Moorcroft Lady Wolves, Lady Ram Mali Wright between teammates #12 Brittany Popp, #13 Kori Puckett, #2 Alex Blare, #14 Jaydn Mirich and #22 Gracie Goldhammer (out of view), hammers the ball past would be block defenders Catherine Clonch and #12 Morghan West to win the game.

The 2nd ranked Big Horn Rams warm up below the snow covered mountain tops before icing the #1 defense of the Moorcroft Wolves 17 to 7 Friday afternoon.

After the Rams beat Wright on the football field Saturday afternoon Lady Rams Jadyn Mirich, Mail Wright and Hanneah Puckett go up on defense on the Volleyball Court and block the ball for a score while Lady Panthers Brittany Belt, Kaylin Edwards, Chambrie Lawrence and Hayden Yeradi can only watch on Saturday evening. The Lady Rams took all three sets 25-18, 25 - 21, 25 - 22.

A 2nd Quarter touchdown by Big Horn's Kyle McGaugh put the Rams up 6 - 0 and they never looked back as they cruised to a 31 - 0 victory over Wright on Friday afternoon in Big Horn.

One bright spot on a dim Friday afternoon was Ram Lucas Wollenman taking the ball away from Greybull's Austin Frazier at the 12 on a Greybull kick early in the first quarter. Big Horn couldn't capitalize on the resultant good field position as Big Horn's offense continued a string of turnovers for Greybull scores. In the end it was Greybull 38 - Big Horn 6.

Colby Wollenman of Big Horn and Kayla Woodward of Sheridan received the highest honor that a Wyoming High School athlete can receive - The 2011 Milward Simpson Award. Colby earned 9 letters, 5 all-conference and 4-all state awards in basketball, football and soccer and is the first Big Horn male athlete to ever win the award.
