RAPID CITY -- Rain slowed the second day of the state tennis meet Friday and forced play indoors, where seven courts forced players to continue their matches long into the night. At 11 p.m. Central Daylight Time, Mitchell's No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams were taking the court in consolation play and Courtney Wells (No. 4) was also just starting her consolation semifinal match after losing earlier in the day. "It has been raining and we've moved indoors late (Friday) afternoon," Mitchell coach Gayle Klein said. "We are in a major slow down now. There are a lot of matches to go.
James Valley Christian boys soccer coach Jory Wipf said it was the longest match he has ever been a part of. But don't mistake that for him complaining.

"This is pretty sweet," Wipf said. "We came in as the seventh seed and the goal all year was to make the state tournament.
BONESTEEL -- Quarterback Tyler Payer broke off a 41-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that proved to be the game-winning touchdown in Tripp-Delmont/Armour's 32-28 win over South Central on Friday.

The South Dakota State University football team has never started a season 0-5 in the program's entire history. Yet, the Jackrabbits face a stiff test in Missouri Valley Football Conference opponent Western Illinois when the two teams meet in the annual Beef Bowl at 6 p.m. Saturday at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in Brookings. SDSU (0-4) has struggled to get offense going in the first half of its games, getting outscored 58-0 this season. In last week's contest, SDSU squandered scoring opportunities, eventually falling to 15th-ranked Northern Iowa 24-14.
