Thank you to the USTA for giving the Wyoming Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports the “10 and Under Organizer of the Year” award! Ken Yamada, council member, accepted the award on behalf of the council at the USTA Wyoming District annual meeting this month.

On October 21st, 2015, Powell Middle School 7th and 8th grade students competed in an Aquathon for the Governor’s Council Health and Fitness Day Event at the Powell Aquatic Center and Homesteader Park. Every student, 280 total, participated. They could solo it, have a team of two, or of three. It was a great success. Around the Powell/Cody area there are many color runs, triathlons, and such.  This event drew attention to the fact that everyone can compete in these types of events and have fun. Each student received a Governor’s Council back pack. Thank you Dale Ann Meeker and Timothy Fagnant for bringing this opportunity to Powell middle school kids!
