SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School tennis team had a rough go of it at home Saturday. The Lady Broncs split a pair of duals, defeating Campbell County 3-2 and dropping a 3-2 decision to Thunder Basin, while the Broncs fell to Thunder Basin (4-1) and Campbell County (3-2).
Sheridan won all three doubles matches against the Lady Camels. Hannah Jost and Ella Laird cruised in straight sets, and the Lady Broncs won the other two doubles matches via forfeit.

Sheridan competes in the conference tournament in Gillette starting Friday.
Lady Generals ease past Northwest
SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College women’s soccer team breezed past Northwest College in the two teams’ conference opener Saturday. The Lady Generals shut out the Lady Trappers 9-0 as Hannah Ozmon recorded a hat trick.
Ozmon scored her first goal in a relatively tame first half in which Sheridan only found the back of the net one other time — Jordan Quig opened the scoring with a goal in the 17th minute. Ozmon logged her second and third goals in back-to-back fashion, just 10 minutes apart, which blew the game open midway through the second half.
Quig scored another, and Rhyan Shultis also had two goals, while Kristen Franke and Chezney Mamalis each bested Northwest’s goalie once.
The Lady Generals travel to Gillette Wednesday.
