Eagles advance in
Region IX Tournament

The Laramie County Community College Golden Eagles won its 22nd game of the season 93-81 over the Trinidad State Junior College Trojans Feb. 28 in the first round of the Region IX tournament.

It is the third time in the history of the school the team has won 22 games. No team has ever won 23.

The Golden Eagles (22-9, 11-5 Region IX South) took a ten-point lead into the half over the Trojans 44-34. The Trojans played a tighter second half with the Eagles but were not able to overcome the half-time deficit.

Sophomores Spencer Svejcar and Kamari Robinson led the Golden Eagles scoring 22 points each in the game. Freshman Alexis Dargenton added a double-double, scoring 17 points and pulling down a team-high 12 rebounds. The game was the Fort-de-France, Martinique, forward’s tenth double-double of the season.

But there is little time to celebrate for LCCC, as the team must now turn its eyes to Region IX North’s second-seeded Gillette College Pronghorns.

Abstract artist
to display new terra incognita works

An abstract artist and professor from New York will have an upcoming exhibit and reception at Laramie County Community College.

A reception will take place in the Esther and John Clay Fine Arts Gallery Thursday, March 5, at noon, for “Ken Buhler: Watercolors and Prints, 2011-2014.” The exhibit will be on display through March 30.

Matt West, an LCCC art instructor said: “This is a great opportunity for our students to experience artwork that is much different from the art which we have in our local museums. Buhler is very excited to be here.”

Buhler works primarily with watercolors. He finds his inspiration from the natural world and has created several series. Some more recent ones stem from inspiration from various flora from the Elizabethan era that are mentioned in Shakespeare’s plays and others from different species of birds and coral.

The chair of the studio arts program at Bard College, Buhler has taught there since 2000. Of his teaching, Buhler said, “Where I teach at Bard College, what I love about our program is we have a great variety in the faculty, and they are allowed and encouraged to teach to their strengths.”

He added he does use his experience in his studio to teach his students, but he does not try to produce “little Ken Buhlers.”
