BURNS — Burns senior Bailey Ward signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mont., this fall. The 5-foot-6 guard averaged 12.3 points per game for the Broncs this past season. Here are a few interesting nuggets that didn’t make it into Friday’s story or other stories this winter.

Cheyenne isn’t really known as a “wrestling town.” Gillette – which won its 10th consecutive Class 4A state title Saturday – is a wrestling town. Green River and Rock Springs are wrestling towns.
Cheyenne is not. But you wouldn’t know it by looking at the medal stand this weekend.
Cheyenne East, which was second in 4A, had 10 athletes place in the top six. Cheyenne Central had seven and Cheyenne South put two on the medal stand in its first foray the 4A ranks. That means 19 of the 84 athletes who placed in the top six at state call the Capital City home. Continue reading →
Cheyenne East junior 132-pounder Blaze Cress will be making his third consecutive championship appearance tonight. He’ll face Sheridan’s Clay Carter, who was second at 125 pounds a year ago and has spent most of this season ranked No. 1 at 132. Carter bested Cress 5-2 in the 4A East Regional final last weekend.
Cress was the state runner-up at 119 pounds last season and 103 pounds as a freshman. Both of those losses came to Gillette’s Lukas Poloncic, who will wrestle for the 138-pound title tonight.
Cress is 25-10 after Friday, but this hasn’t been the easiest season for him. Continue reading →
Losses like the one that the Cheyenne Central boys basketball team suffered Feb. 11 against crosstown rival Cheyenne East tend to stick with teams.
Surrendering a 19-point fourth-quarter lead can be hard to forget. But the Indians seem to have put the 57-55 overtime loss behind them.
They didn’t have much time to dwell on it because they had to play a rescheduled contest at Laramie the following Tuesday. They won that game 56-40. They lost at Gillette on Friday, but rebounded to beat then-No. 2-ranked Sheridan 36-35.

The Cheyenne East wrestling team’s studs did just about everything that was expected of them in leading the Thunderbirds to a second-place finish at the Class 4A East Regional tournament this past weekend. The T-Birds saw sophomore Brody Cress (106 pounds), senior Lance Kailey (126) and freshman Tevis Bartlett (182) win regional titles. First-year coach Thad Trujillo — who was voted the conference coach of the year by his peers — also had six other athletes placed second at the meet and five more placed third or fourth.
That was expected. But a few other unsung athletes stepped up on contributed for East.
Senior Blake Hanzlik went 4-2 and placed fourth at 138 pounds. Freshman 132-pounder Dax Cathcart and freshmen 145-pounders Brandon and Dalton Mizel all went 3-2 at the tournament. Junior 152-pounder Josh Guillory and freshman Isaac Taylor (220 pounds) posted 2-2 records. Continue reading →
