In December 2018, Riverton High School basketball star Treyton Paxton won the annual slam dunk contest at the Flaming Gorge Classic.
The basketball tournament brings dozens of boys and girls teams to Sweetwater County for games over three days. Teams from across Wyoming in all conferences, and a handful from neighboring states join the competition each December.
On Friday evening, the actual game-play stops and all teams gather for a 3-point shooting and slam dunk contest.
This year, RHS standout Lucas Engle claimed the slam dunk contest championship helping the Wolverines achieve back-to-back victories in the event.
Engle is pictured with his teammates above, he’s the one with the giant trophy as you might imagine.
We’re working on finding some video so you can watch his award winning dunks, but in the meantime, check out last year’s winner Treyton Paxton below!
The winner of the Flaming Gorge Basketball Classic Slam Dunk contest is Treyton Paxton of Riverton.
