Burns athletes Romsa, Ward, Wilcoxson named All-State

Indoor track, basketball honorees announced


Travis Romsa was named All-State, All-Conference and was the Conference Player of the Year.

Burns High School athlete Shana Wilcoxson has spent her winter competing in indoor track for Cheyenne East High School. Her hard work over the winter has paid off with her being named All-State in the pole vault and Triple Jump.

2A All-State basketball players were announced this week. Burns Lady Bronc Mckenzie Ward and Bronc Travis Romsa were both named to the All-State ranks.

The 2A basketball All-Conference honorees have also been announced. Girls in the Southeast Conference named are Andrea Baker and Jaden Ragsdale from Pine Bluffs High School and Megan Marker, Mckayla Ward and Mckenzie Ward from Burns High School. Baker was also named All-Conference for the SEWAC.

For the boys 2A Southeast, Travis Romsa was named All-Conference and was named the Conference Player of the Year. Joining him in All-Conference honors was teammate Taylor Kirkbride and Pine Bluffs roundballers Lane Nusbaum, Scott Gross and Taylor Fornstrom.

Shrine Bowl team members named

Burns Bronc Colton Wright has been named on the roster of players for the Shrine Bowl South team. Pine Bluffs Hornet Lane Nusbaum was chosen as an alternate.

Mckenzie Ward (13) was named All-State and All-Conference this season.

Hornets’ coach Will Gray said being an alternate means, if an athlete gets injured, chooses to do one of the Basketball All Star games, or gets in trouble with the law Nusbaum could be called up to take a place on the roster.

“Also, in years past alternates have also been called in due to an injury during the first couple of days of practice,” Gray said. “Calling up an alternate player depends on position needs. If a skill player chooses/cannot play then another skill player is usually called, likewise with lineman. As a coach in last year’s game, I think we ended up bringing in five or six alternates, so anything can happen.”

“This marks the third year in a row that one of our football players has been chosen to represent Pine Bluffs High School as a player or alternate,” Gray added.
