Laramie Cross Country’s Final Tune-up, Swimming Wins Again
It was a quiet weekend of competition for the Laramie High School last weekend.
After volleyball played last Thursday night and won at 3A Wheatland, there was only one competition apiece for girls’ swimming and cross country.

In the final tune-up before the postseason, Laramie ran at the Leroy Sprague Invitational last Friday in Cheyenne.
The Laramie Plainsmen placed second behind Cheyenne Central and scored 67 points. Meyer Smith and Gideon Moore led LHS and placed eighth and ninth, respectively. Four more Plainsmen finished in the top 19.
The Laramie Lady Plainsmen took third place as a team behind Cheyenne Central and Cheyenne East. They scored 72 points. Leah Schabron was the top runner and came in sixth place. LHS had two more runners in the top 15.
Laramie did run without a few of their top performers in both the girls’ and boys’ lineups.
LHS heads to the 4A West Conference Cross Country meet on Friday in Casper at Paradise Valley Country Club. The girls’ varsity race will start at 2 p.m., followed by the boys’ varsity race at 2:30 p.m.
The Lady Plainsmen got another battle from Cheyenne Central at the Southeast Quad last Friday at Cheyenne South High School.
Laramie won the meet with 421 team points. The Indians scored 394 points. South placed third, while East was fourth.
LHS won only three of 12 events in the meet. Anna Roesler won the 100 freestyle race. That was followed by Ashlyn Mathes’ victory in the 500 freestyle race. Laramie finished the quad meet with a win in the 400 freestyle relay.
The Lady Plainsmen remain undefeated on the season and head to Gillette for two competitions this weekend. Friday is the Gillette Pre-Invite, a non-scored meet. On Saturday, it’s the Gillette Invite at the Campbell County Aquatics Center.
