February 2, 2023 — Tonight, the Sweetwater County rivalry between Rock Springs and Green River basketball teams will take place at Green River High School. In addition to the basketball competition between the Wolves and Tigers in girls’ and boys’ basketball, the winner of the 15th Annual Blood Drive Challenge will be announced between the two games.

This year’s community blood draws took place on January 23 in Rock Springs and January 24 in Green River. Those events were followed by school blood draws for the school’s students and staff the following two days. Tonight we will find out if GRHS repeats and the champion or RSHS take back the trophy.

Last year, 566 pints of blood were donated, with the Wolves totaling 295 pints compared to 271 pints donated in the name of Rock Springs.
