Athletes from all across Wyoming participated in the event, competing in a variety of sports, from golf, to bowling, bocce, cycling, softball, and more!

It was a full weekend of sports, taking place from August 5 to August 6, and it went all across Casper. Athletes competed at the Casper Municipal Golf Course, El Marko Lanes, the North Casper Softball Complex and Edness Kimball Wilkins Park.

Each and every one of the athletes performed at peak level, and they were awarded their medals by members of the Natrona County Sheriff's Office.

Deputy Heid and Sheriff Harlin with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office, as well as Sgt. Ogden with the Casper Police Department, were on-hand at El Marko Lanes to medal the athletes, shaking their hands and reminding them that they, too, are heroes.
