Sheridan HS Soccer: After having last week off from competition because of spring break, the Sheridan High School boys and girls soccer teams will be back in action this week, with conference games vs. Cheyenne East and Cheyenne Central.

In their last game before the break, the Broncs had to settle for a 2-2 tie vs. Laramie, thanks in part to giving a penalty kick goal, courtesy of a penalty in the box, which has been the teams’ biggest weakness.

Of the 5 goals they’ve given up this season, 3 of them have been the PK variety.

Coach Wade Kinsey says the team needs a little more discipline when the ball is in the box, and that’s something that can be fixed.

The boys play Friday at Cheyenne East and on Saturday at Cheyenne Central.

Sheridan will be a little undermanned this weekend as several wrestlers who play on the team, will be in Virginia Beach, Virginia competing at the National High School Athletic Coaches Association Folkstyle Wrestling National Championship Tournament.

As for the Sheridan girls, there’s been a change to their schedule.

Saturday’s home game vs. Cheyenne Central has been moved up and will be played tomorrow, because if the game was played on Saturday, the Lady Indians would be in a jam trying to get back to Cheyenne in decent time to get ready for prom.

Friday’s home game vs. Cheyenne East will be played as scheduled.


No More Overtime In Soccer: If you’ve been to a Wyoming High School soccer game this season, you may have noticed something is missing from the game.

Overtime is no more in the 4A ranks, so if a game is tied after 2-40 minute halves, that’s it.

3A did away with overtime last year, and now in a conference game, tie games go to a shootout.

Wyoming High School Activities Association Director Trevor Wilson says the main reason for getting rid of overtime was to make sure the players don’t get too worn out, especially when there’s a busy week of games on the schedule.

Wilson says teams will play 2 10-minute overtime periods at the regional and state tournaments.

If the score is still tied after that, the things will be decided in a shootout.


Sheridan County HS Track and Field: Sheridan is scheduled to compete Friday at Spearfish, South Dakota.

Big Horn has changed up its schedule and will compete Friday at Kelly Walsh.

Tongue River is scheduled to go to Greybull on Saturday, and Arvada-Clearmont will be at Glenrock on Friday.


Sheridan Troopers Legion Baseball: The Sheridan Troopers are scheduled to start the 2024 season on Saturday at home with a double-header vs. Powell, who are the defending A-League State Champs.

First pitch is scheduled for 1pm, however the weather forecast for Saturday is not looking good.

We’ll keep you posted on any changes, when we get them.


University of Wyoming Spring Football Practice: The University of Wyoming has announced that this Saturday’s spring practice will be open to the public beginning at 11am, right after the kids clinic.

The practice will be held at War Memorial Stadium and in the event of bad weather, it will be moved to the Indoor Practice Facility.


Colorado Rockies Baseball: The Colorado Rockies fell to 1-5 on the season, after losing last night at the Chicago Cubs 12-2.

Michael Toglia hit a 2-run home run in the top of the 7th, and that was it for the offense.

The Rocks conclude the 3-game series today at 5:40pm.

Tomorrow is an off day and then on Friday, the team will play its home opener against Tampa Bay.


Denver Nuggets Basketball: The Denver Nuggets won last night at home vs. San Antonio 110-105.

With 6 games remaining, the team is once again back on top of the west, by ½ game ahead of both Minnesota and Oklahoma City.

The Nuggets next play tomorrow at the LA Clippers.
