The Rangers boys swimming and diving team had an outstanding state meet at Gillette this past
weekend. They finished sixth out of 12 teams. Their best individual finish was a fourth place
in the 100 breaststroke by Brayden Deardon. Freshman Raydin Scigliano was fifth in diving.
Ben Wergin was sixth in the 50 freestyle and seventh in the 100 freestyle. Aiden Runnion was
eighth in the 200 individual medley. Kemmerer was fifth in tthe 200 medley relay.


The Kemmerer Rangers and Lady Rangers basketball teams each played just one game this past
week, when they traveled to Wyoming Indian Friday evening. The games had no bearing on
the conference standings. The Kemmerer boys were already assured of finishing in third place
and the girls in fourth and last place. Both Rangers teams took an early lead in the first quarter
before the highly ranked Chiefs teams pulled away to a double digit lead by the end of that
quarter. The Lady Chiefs coasted to an 87 to 26 win.  The Lady Rangers were led in scoring, as usual, by Madelyn Gregory with 11 points. The

Kemmerer boys played Wyoming Indian just
about even in the second half as they fell by a score of 84 to 52. Colter Brunski led the
Rangers with 18 points, and Caden Bowen contributed 17 points. The Rangers and Lady
Rangers now head to the class 2A west conference tournament at Riverton. The boys open
against Tongue River at 12:30 this Thursday afternoon. The girls will play against northwest
conference champion Greybull at 2:30 Thursday afternoon.
