One week from Monday, football teams across the state will take the field for their first practice of the season.
Though practice hasn’t started yet, coaches in the Eastern South Dakota Conference have a pretty good idea of where they think everyone will stack up this year.

Mitchell track and field coach Geoff Gross has been coaching track for more than 10 years and has won numerous state titles.
But he has never hosted a conference meet before, and he said he’s excited to see what happens today when Mitchell hosts the Eastern South Dakota Conference track meet, which begins at 11:30 a.m. at Joe Quintal Field.
Of course, Gross would be even more excited if his team comes away from the meet with a number of conference champions, and fortunately for the Kernels, that shouldn’t be a problem.
With two tournaments left on the schedule, the four seniors on the Mitchell boys’ varsity tennis team are gearing up for their final days in Kernels’ uniforms.
The No. 3, 4 and 6 singles players for the Kernels are all seniors, and starting today in Watertown, those three and Cole Bruscher, who plays only on varsity doubles, will enter their final Eastern South Dakota Conference tennis tournament.
BROOKINGS — The Mitchell High School girls’ golf team took eighth place at the Eastern South Dakota Golf tournament Saturday at the Brookings Country Club.
Mitchell, which finished with a team score of 399, only had two golfers shoot under a 100, while Brookings team won the event with a 338 and had the individual champion in Morgan Fitts, who shot a 74.
“The girls are very disappointed,” Mitchell head coach Mark Horan said. “There were some tough greens, and we didn’t putt very well.”
Yankton and Huron tied for second place at 362, and Watertown took fourth with a 376.
