Photo of the Day: It’s a… helicopter!

The copter swooped low over the parade route, but well above the downtown business district causing eyes to look skyward. The helicopter made two passes over the parade route. On it’s first pass down Main, Fabian Lobera captured this shot it flew directly overhead.

Rustlers snap two game losing streak with win over Miles City; CWC to host Gillette College Wed.

The Central Wyoming College men’s basketball team held off Miles Community College of Miles City, Montana Saturday night to capture an eight point 76-68 Region IX North Conference victory in Riverton. CWC rolled to a big lead, up to 19 points midway through the second half, before Miles came storming back. Central coach Curtis Condie said his young team needed to learn how to hold onto a lead, especially after losing two overtime games in a row on the road this past week at Rock Springs and Sheridan.“We went cold from the floor, went a little flat, and let Miles get back into the game,” Condie said. “We’re fragile, we have a young team with no more than two sophomores out on the floor at any one time.”  Because of that, Condie said he fell back on a practice that he learned from former Los Angeles Lakers Coach Phil Jackson. “I didn’t take a time out because they needed to figure out,” he said of the Rustlers losing the double-digit lead. “We did get some quality bench play and Ali (Sabra) had a great night. the 5’11” sophomore from Las Vegas scored a game high 18 points while dishing out a team high four assists and snagging six rebounds. He was perfect, 4 of 4, from the line. Also scoring in double figures for the Rustlers were James Johnson with 15, Malachi Roberts and Armani Flannigan with 11 each and Davion Pearson with 10.For Miles Community College, the Pioneers were lead in scoring by Jeremy Nicolas with 17. Two other Pioneers hit double figures, Sian Laine and Tyree Anderson, with 12 apiece.“It’s good to get back on the winning side again,” Condie said. “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Central is now 12-3 on the season.
