ROME, Ga. (AP) — Tom Yaremko hit the right upright in the first quarter and the left upright in the second. Then with the NAIA title on the line, the Carroll College kicker was dead on in the fourth quarter.
Yaremko made a 22-yard field goal with 7:47 left and the Montana school snapped Sioux Falls’ record-tying 42-game winning streak with a 10-7 victory Saturday.

Less than two months before the start of the 2010-11 school year, Dana College announced Wednesday night that it was closing its doors forever.
The sudden closure leaves more than 600 full- and part-time students and roughly 130 employees searching for a place to work or go to school this fall.

Casey Solem has already received numerous awards throughout his collegiate baseball career, but Thursday afternoon he added one that topped them all.
Solem, who played center field for the Dakota Wesleyan baseball team this season and also led the team in almost every offensive category, earned NAIA All-American second-team honors.
Thomas Madut has been a mainstay on the cross country and track programs for the past four years at Dakota Wesleyan.
The senior has received numerous all-Great Plains Athletic Conference and all-region honors in both sports, but the distance runner saved the best performance of his college career for last.
The last time the Dakota Wesleyan University men’s basketball team played Dordt College, the Defenders ruined a comeback effort with a 3-pointer at the buzzer for a 76-73 win in Sioux Center, Iowa.
The Tigers weren’t going to let that happen again.
Fueled by an upbeat student section in attendance at the Corn Palace for “Pack the Palace” night, the Tigers defended their home court and beat Dordt 84-70 Wednesday night.
Three times in the last three minutes of Wednesday’s game, Dordt College grabbed an offensive rebound after missing the back end of a pair of free throws.
The Defenders weren’t able to capitalize on the first two boards, but on the third, Dordt senior Kate Du Mez was fouled and she hit both free throws to give the Defenders a 53-49 lead with just nine seconds left in the game.
Ashley Mailey made a layup six seconds later but Bailey Spencer hit a single free throw with a half second left to seal a 54-51 over Dakota Wesleyan in a women’s basketball game at the Corn Palace.
