Powell’s Scott McKenzie Enters WCA Hall of Fame
Scott McKenzie of Powell has plenty of coaching experience, starting back in 1987 when he was a graduate basketball assistant for Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota. He spent a couple of years in Newcastle and has called Powell his home since 1990.
Basketball is his game and he coached the Panther's girls program from 2014-2019 and won a 3A state championship in 2015 with a record of 22-4. His teams also finished 3rd twice in his tenure. He was the boy's head coach in Powell for a couple of years with 2 state tournament appearances and served as an assistant coach with a state title to his credit and four regional titles.
McKenzie was named the 3A Girls Coach of the Year once, the 3A West Boys Coach of the Year twice, and the 3A Boys Assistant Coach of the Year once. He's also coached volleyball as well as golf at Powell and is currently the school's Athletic Director.
McKenzie is part of the 2020 Wyoming Coaches Association Hall of Fame class along with John Hepp of Buffalo/Douglas, Kaycee's Jason Humble, and Brad DeKrey of Rock Springs. Worland's Jacque Pike and Tim Eisenbarth of Rock Springs were enshrined at the Junior High and Middle School levels.
