Fall sports wrapping up at the high school

JACKSON, Wyo. — A few sports programs at Jackson Hole High School wrapped up recently. Runners, swimmers, and spikers are all finishing their seasons this weekend.

Cross Country

JHHS Cross Country traveled to Star Valley last weekend for state championships. They faced a very competitive field as well as a daunting course that ended with a grueling hill climb. And the there was the weather. It was absolutely brutal out—cold and windy with snow flurries.

Both the boys and girls teams managed 3rd place finishes despite the challenges.

Juniors Muriel Jones (19:53.5) and Parker Smith (19:59.9) paced the girls with 5th and 8th place finishes, respectively. For the boys, junior Mason Wheeler (16:44.5) and sophomore Ben Williams (16:58.8) led the way.

JHHS swim team

The swim team traveled to Laramie for their conference meet where they placed 6th out of seven teams.

“What a fantastic weekend of competition! The girls did a great job and I think we all learned a lot,” said Coach Rossetti.

State finals begin November 8-9 in Gillette.

JHHS Volleyball

Hard work has come to define this group as the JHHS volleyball team endured a season filled with more determination than wins. The girls progressed all year and fought hard in every set.
