Classic Pot and Kettle

I was hoping to quietly turn off the lights behind me as I crept out of the room, but when the recent past Booster President, Citizen of the Year, Frannie Rogers makes a request you oblige.  However, I noticed that if you ignore the specifics of her text below, the spirit of it could apply to a lot of other people out there.  There are myriad past and present team moms, team photographers and reporters, underpaid coaches, overworked school staff, concession volunteers, and Booster Board members that fit this bill just as well and likely even more so than I.  So if you're in the above group or some other type of unlisted, unnoticed, unthanked, 20 percent-er then consider this just as much about you and read this with a knowing smirk on your face and a warm sense of appreciation in your heart.

From Frannie Rogers:

Bon Voyage Jason! Thank you Jason Miller for everything you did to make the Wyoming Round Up Blog a huge success. For the past four years you have worked diligently to keep us abreast of all the in's and out's plus comings and goings of Wyoming Athletics and community events. Jason started his tireless mission of blog entries in September 2012 and did his final post in June 2016. He will forever be remembered for his professionalism, time, effort, energy and most importantly his humorous postings in which he engaged and entertained his audience. Many Wyoming sporting events were highlighted throughout his tenure as editor and chief of the blog. His determination and effective communication kept us all up to speed on the latest results, highlights and happenings around town. His true commitment for the love of the game was evident and he and his blog will be missed. Thank you Jason for your four years of service and dedication to Wyoming Round Up. Hats off, You will be missed!



Since 2009, the Booster's Round Up blog has been bringing you the great news about our Wyoming athletes.  This role will now be will be covered by the new Athletics website (coming soon).  

Just because I won't be around to cajole you into helping the cause, doesn't mean there isn't still a need for your help.  The Booster's will still need you to add your time and talents to help improve the athletic experience for our Cowboys, and the new website will still need content.

I don't think I can list any names in a thank you as I'm sure I'd miss a few and I don't want to make any regular contributor feel forgotten.

Therefore thanks to all who've read and especially to all who've contributed.

Ultimate Ultimate

The Wyoming Ultimate boys team capped another strong season with a fifth place finish in the state tournament in Versailles this weekend.  Wyoming beat Pickerington and Westerville North to advance to the quarterfinals, before dropping a tight 9-12 decision to eventual runner-up Mason.  Wyoming then overcame a 1-8 halftime deficit to beat St. Charles (Columbus) 13-12 to claim fifth place.

Wyoming seniors Gus Bradley, Thomas Harmon, Jay Klein, Jaden Shapiro, Daniel Tighe, and Joe White closed their Ultimate careers at Wyoming in style with the fifth place game win.  Joe, who will play Ultimate at Carleton College, led the team with 27 scoring throws and nine defenses in the five games at State, while Jay had eight goals, Daniel had six, and Jaden had 11 scoring throws.

Thanks to Coach White for the picture and the great news.


Great Run at Regionals

This team of Jack Schwartz, Joe White, Cullen O’Brien and Zachary Herbert placed 8th out of 16+ teams in the 4x800 relay at the University of Dayton Regionals last week. Wyoming had a number of excellent runners also compete at the Regional level.

Congratulations to Cullen O’Brian who made it to State in the 2 mile run.  He runs this Saturday at Ohio State University! Thanks to Coach Glendenning and his team for another excellent spring Track and Field season.

11 Seconds Out

Wyoming alumna, Emily Stites ('12) recently competed in the NCAA Eastern Prelims.  The photo above and the following text is an excerpt from the Jacob Skipper article found on the William and Mary Tribe Athletics website.

The William & Mary women's track and field got NCAA competition underway Thursday at the Eastern Prelims in Jacksonville, with three women competing in two events.  The top finisher for the Tribe was senior Emily Stites, who wrapped up her outstanding four-year career with a 34:52.11 showing in the 10,000m for 15th place.  Stites was just 11 seconds behind qualifying, and finishes her collegiate career as W&M's all-time leading All-American for women's track with seven All-American honors.
