Here’s a quick overview of the 2023 winter high school sports seasons in Wyoming, aside from basketball, as updated to

Boys wrestling: Sheridan won its second team title in program history in taking Class 4A’s top honors, while Kemmerer won its second team title — and its second in a row — in winning 2A. Meanwhile, Green River won its 18th team title in winning 3A. Douglas’ Lane Ewing, the Class 3A champ at 160 pounds, became Wyoming’s 27th four-time individual champion. Each team champion finished with three individual first-place finishers. Individual championships from Dane Steel (152), Kelten Crow (160) and Colson Coon (182) paced Sheridan to the 4A title. Green River’s 3A winners came from Lucas Todd (106), Kale Knezovich (138) and Thomas Dalton (145). Kemmerer got individual titles from Roany Proffit (126), Karl Haslem (132) and Riggen Walker (152).

Girls wrestling: Wyoming’s first girls state wrestling meet was a one-class affair, won by Star Valley. The Braves only had one individual champion — Veil Foreman at 135 — but had enough depth to win. Pinedale finished second. Wind River, with Molly Bornhoft at 105 and AnnaBeth Bornhoft at 115, was the only school to have more than one individual champion.

Boys swimming: The two biggest swimming dynasties in Wyoming continued unabated. The Lander boys won their 27th consecutive 3A swimming championship, while Laramie won its sixth straight championship in 4A. Lander won its 30th title in school history, while Laramie won its 26th, ranking 1-2 in state history. Cheyenne Central’s Ethan Merrell joined a list of just 30 boys swimmers in state history, and just the second from Central, to become a six-time individual champion, winning the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke for the third time each.

Indoor track: For the first time, indoor track teams were split into Class 4A and Class 3A divisions. Cody swept the first set of 3A team titles, while Natrona’s boys and Sheridan’s girls won 4A team titles. Natrona’s boys set a state meet record with 198.5 team points. Cheyenne East’s Taliah Morris set a new standard in the girls long jump at 19 feet, 2 inches, while Pinedale’s Colby Jenks set a new all-class record in the boys 800 (1:53.92). The Cheyenne Central girls also set a state record in the 1600 medley relay at 4:14.11.

Alpine skiing: Jackson swept the boys and girls alpine skiing titles for the 12th consecutive year, with the Jackson girls winning their 14th straight title. Jackson also swept the individual titles, with Taylor Smith sweeping the girls’ races and Owen Janssen (slalom) and Travis D’Amours (giant slalom) splitting the boys’ individual titles.

Nordic skiing: Lander’s girls ended Jackson’s streak of consecutive state championships at 11 and won their first state title since 2010. The Jackson boys, meanwhile, won their fifth straight title and their 13th title in 14 years. Natrona’s Ally Wheeler won both individual girls races, while Lander’s Bennett Hutchison (freestyle) and Jackson’s Sam Sinclair (classic) won the boys individual titles.
