Milward Simpson Award Finalist Kamdynn Townsend of Douglas
Kamdynn Townsend from Douglas is one of the state's finest all-around athletes so it's no surprise that she is a finalist for the Milward Simpson Award, given to the outstanding athlete of the year. Townsend was an all-state basketball player as her Bearcat team won the 3A championship, finishing undefeated, She was also an all-state selection in volleyball and won three events at the State Track Meet. Townsend won gold in the 400-meter dash, the high jump, and the long jump with a 2nd place finish in the 200-meter dash.
She just competed in the Wyoming-Montana all-star basketball series but her Wyoming team lost a close one in Sheridan and also lost in Billings. We had a chance to chat with her after that 3 point loss on Friday to Montana; with some thoughts about her outstanding effort at State Track.
