Sheridan HS Soccer: The 4A Regional Soccer tournaments start today as teams play do or die games to get into next weekend’s state tournament.

The 4A East tournament will be played at Cheyenne East, and the Sheridan boys have the #2 seed, thus they will play the #7 seed Cheyenne South in the first round.

That game starts at 5pm and will be played at Cheyenne Central.

If the Broncs win, then they would play in the regional semi-finals tomorrow, against the winner of the 2 Gillette teams vs. each other.

There would be one more game on Saturday for seeding purposes.

The Sheridan boys are 7-0-1 in their last 8 games and head coach Wade Kinsey says the team is right where they want to be in this regional tournament.

Cheyenne South has only won 1 game and tied another this season.

Kinsey adds if today’s game plays out the way he anticipates, the plan is to take care of business early, give the reserves some playing time, and have the starters save as much energy as possible for the rest of the weekend.

Meanwhile the Sheridan girls have the #4 seed and will play the first game of the day at 1pm, against the host team, Cheyenne East.

The 2 teams played each other 2 weeks ago in Cheyenne, in not-so-great weather, and the forecast for today is going to be a little bit better, but not by much.

Coach Josh Dube the weather is no excuse, especially when the season is on the line, and the Lady Broncs just need to make sure they don’t make that one mistake that they made the last time they played the Lady Thunderbirds.

If the Sheridan girls win today, they would face top seed Laramie in the semi-finals tomorrow.


Sheridan HS Track and Field: Tomorrow and Saturday are the regional meets.

Sheridan will be at the 4A East meet at Cheyenne South, while Big Horn, Tongue River and Arvada-Clearmont will be at the 2A East and 1A East meet at Sundance.

The 3-day state meet starts next week Thursday at Casper.

The Rocks and Giants will close out their 3-game series today starting at 1:10pm.
