Campbell County, Thunder Basin football continues playoff push this week

After one of the most exciting nights of high school football for Gillette fans last week, Campbell County and Thunder Basin will hit the road this Friday to continue their push to the state playoffs.

For the Bolts, they are already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs. However, they have a conference championship on their mind and will continue that pursuit in Laramie on Friday at 6 p.m.
Thunder Basin is in a huge fight to the finish with three other teams competing for the league title and the top seeds in the state playoffs at the end of the month. TBHS has a 5-1 overall record and is tied for first place with Cheyenne East, Rock Springs and Sheridan high schools. The Bolts’ final game of the regular season will be at home against Sheridan.

Campbell County will face Natrona County is a showdown that is even on paper as both teams enter the game with identical 3-3 records. Both teams are heading to the playoffs this season but fighting for positioning is the next important order of business. The higher the seeding in the playoffs, the better chance of getting the most competitive game possible in the first round. Also, the top four finishers in the regular season get to host a first-round game, so there is plenty on the line when the Camels and Mustangs take the field Friday at 7 p.m.
