Broncs schedule changes

The Jackson Broncs recently announced multiple schedule changes for the fall. The Broncs’ varsity matchup at Pocatello, Idaho, has been moved to Holt Arena on Thursday, Sept. 9. The game will kick off at 6 p.m.

On Friday, Oct. 8, the Broncs will now play at 6 p.m. at Evanston High School.

On the JV side the Broncs will play at Highland High School on Friday, Sept. 10, at 5 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 6, they will now play at Evanston High School at 4 p.m.

Swim and dive qualifiers

The Jackson Hole swimming and diving team had two swimmers qualify for the state meet this past week at the Lander Pentathlon.

Sophomores Vega Sanchez and Ila Musclow both qualified by placing fourth and ninth, respectively.

Head coach Colleen Rossetti was very pleased with the performance of both of her qualifying swimmers.

“Vega had a very strong showing for her first meet of the year,” Rossetti said. “She placed top four in almost all of her events and is already ahead of the times she posted at this meet last year. She is already starting to apply different strategies to her races so she doesn’t get stuck in one mode.”

“Ila had a great first meet of the season,” Rossetti said. “She worked in the offseason, and it showed during every race. You could see her competing until the very end and usually beating the athlete next to her. Last year she didn’t qualify until the conference meet, which is the last meet of the season to qualify. This year she qualified in the first meet and by over a second. I can’t wait to see how she does throughout the year.”

Night at the races

Last Friday the Jackson Hole Broncs cross-country team competed in the “Night at the Races” event in Idaho Falls.

The event kicked off the team’s fall schedule of races and provided a fun and competitive environment for the athletes.

The girls took home second place behind Skyline High School, ending up with three top-10 finishers, including Kate Brigham, who came in first.

On the boys side the team finished in fourth place overall.

The top finishers were Brandon Brazil and Axel Klomparens, who finished in 11th and 12th place, respectively.

On Saturday the Broncs will head to Orem, Utah, for the Timpanogos Invitational. This is the Broncs’ first time participating in the event, which features some of the largest teams from around the state. Due to limited hotel space the team will travel with just 16 boys and 16 girls for the event.

The team is planning to depart Jackson on Friday for the Saturday morning race.

Stoke the Fire

Teton Gravity Research is holding a world premiere and fundraiser for its new film, “Stoke the Fire,” on Saturday, Sept. 18.

The movie will premiere at two different times that afternoon at Walk Festival Hall. The first showing will begin at 3:15 p.m., with doors opening at 2:45. The second showing will begin at 8 p.m. with the doors opening at 7:30.

Featured athletes expected to be in attendance include Kai Jones, Caite Zeliff, Griffin Post, Jim Ryan and Veronica Paulson.

The event is part of the village’s FarOutFest, which includes free live music, drinks and access to the bike park.

Tickets for the premiere cost $20 for adults and $10 for ages 16 and under. VIP tickets cost $75 and include whisky tasting, a gift bag and VIP seating at for the late show.

Following the premiere, there will be an 21-and-over afterparty at TGR Continuum Hotel featuring Jerry Dance Party, a “mind-bending light and video experience.” Tickets are sold separately.
