RIVERTON What an exciting weekend for the young men and ladies from Lyman as the regionals last weekend proved to be a venue filled with high emotions as both teams claimed a berth in the state tournament this week,

The young men are hitting their peak right at the perfect time. The Eagles went to Riverton with a single goal in their sights, to win regionals and get a first place seed for state. Lyman stunned everyone watching the 3A and achieved their goal as the Eagles knocked off the previously undefeated Riverton Wolverines in the championship round last Saturday. According to those who watched the game, it was an excellent game and both teams proved to be tough, but the Eagles clawed their way to victory, 51-50.

The Lady Eagles also had an amazing weekend filled with great plays and great shots. They faced the Lady Wolverines in the first round at regionals on Thursday night last week. Riverton has struggled this season and continued to struggle at regionals as the Lady Eagles cruised to a 43-25 win.

In an early morning matchup last Saturday against the Pinedale Lady Wranglers in a win-and-in or lose-and-you-are-out game.

In the game against Cody, the Lady Eagles went into halftime leading 27-14. Cody must have gotten a wake-up call in the locker room as they came out firing on all cylinders in the second half, but the Lady Eagles held them off and won, 41-35.
