Lancers win Otero golf tournament to wrap up fall season

The Eastern Wyoming College golf team completed the fall season with the Otero Junior College tournament held October 7-8. The Lancers won the tournament with a score of 558. McCook Community College was second with 567.

“The guys played insanely well on Thursday, all 6 guys shot level or under par. I think that was the first time that we’ve done that since I started coaching over 8 years ago,” said Coach Zach Smith. “They followed it up with a solid day-two to get the team win and Russel walked away with the individual win. Getting some wins, the last two weeks has been huge in the overall battle for another region 9 championship and a possible birth to our 8th straight national championship appearance. We’ll work hard in the gym, in the classroom and on the course when weather permits this off-season to maintain momentum going into the spring season.”

Leading the Lancers and winning the tournament was sophomore Russel Sprecher from Casper, WY. Sprecher shot 66, 72 – 138. Other Lancer scores were as follows:

Conrado Chozas, sophomore, Madrid, Spain – 69, 70- 139, 2nd

Joshua Wiese, freshman, Cape Town, South Africa – 70, 70 – 140, 3rd

EWC update on IT incident

EWC update on IT incident

Eastern Wyoming College is in the process of responding to a security incident involving the targeting of our information technology systems by an unknown third party.  We are treating this incident with the highest priority and working with outside experts to remediate the problem and responsibly and securely restore full IT operations.

Upon discovery of evidence of a security incident on the morning of Tuesday June 22, 2021, we immediately took our systems offline and initiated contact with independent computer security and forensic experts, who are helping us understand the full nature and scope of the event. We have reported the incident to law enforcement and are sharing information for that investigation.

We have been conducting a methodical process to assess, restore and rebuild impacted individual IT systems and equipment using available backup files, and are only returning affected computers to service after they have been reformatted and scanned.  Additional measures include resetting administrative credentials and passwords and implementing advanced monitoring and threat detection across our network.

By following our established procedures, we are hopeful to safely restore IT operations shortly.  Although our investigation is ongoing, we have received no reports to-date that the Canvas module have been impacted by this incident. In fact, access to Canvas has now been restored to currently enrolled summer students. Those students should call Sue at 307.575.0646 or Dixie at 307.575.6250 to obtain their new Canvas password.

In addition to completing extensive measures to restore and confirm the security of our system, EWC is committed to conducting a thorough forensic investigation and taking all appropriate action in response to our findings.  We also will be working with our outside experts to implement additional security enhancements to help protect against future attacks.

We apologize for any inconvenience or concern caused by this incident.  As our investigation and recovery continue, we will provide updates on our progress.


Canvas access for summer students

Eastern Wyoming College has established access to Canvas courses for currently enrolled summer students. Students can call Sue at 307.575.0646 or Dixie at 307.575.6250 to obtain their new Canvas password. Passwords will also be mailed to all students currently enrolled in summer courses.

All summer sessions will be extended by two weeks.
