Jets rally fordistrict crown

SHERIDAN — Sheridan used a big sixth inning to rally past Gillette 9-7 to claim the district title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming State B Tournament.

The Jets trailed 6-4 entering the bottom of the sixth inning. Sheridan took advantage of some errant pitches — three hit batsmen and a wild pitch — to put up a crooked number.

Cody Kilpatrick led the offensive charge for the Jets with two hits and four RBIs. Luke Keller also had a couple runs batted in, and Caden Steele recorded two hits and an RBI.

Keller got the start and lasted 4 1/3 innings, allowing five earned runs on eight hits with three strikeouts and four walks. Rich Hall tossed the final 2 2/3 innings, surrendering one earned run on four hits.

Sheridan battles Laramie Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Thorne-Rider Stadium in the opening round of the state tourney.


North sweeps South

SHERIDAN — The North Team used a big second quarter to capture a sizable lead en route to a 98-74 win over the South in the 2018 Wyoming Coaches Foundation All-Star game in Casper.

Campbell County’s Trey Hladky led the way with 23 points, which included five 3-pointers. Sheridan’s Aaron Woodward tallied three points, and Buffalo’s Hayden Peterson — who will play for Sheridan College next season — tallied eight points.

The South held a slight 26-24 advantage at the end of the first quarter, but the North responded with a 29-point second quarter that staked them to a 53-37 halftime lead. The North extended its cushion in each of the last two frames to claim the victory.

The North girls obliterated the South 80-49. Campbell County’s Kierra Cutright led the North with 25 points.

The North also beat the South in a tight five-set volleyball match (27-25, 14-25,25-18, 25-19, 10-15).
