In front of a loud Mitchell High School homecoming crowd, the No. 3 Watertown Arrows earned their 10th victory of the season after defeating the Kernels 3-0 Tuesday in Mitchell. Late in the third set, Mitchell rallied for five straight points to tie the game at 20, but after Watertown head coach Kim Rohde called a timeout to settle her team down, the Arrows were able to finish the game off. "I told my team to just get the job done and stop making silly errors," Rohde said.

Success breeds success. It's an old saying and one Dakota Wesleyan University women's golf coach Adam Anderson believes is true in regards to his program. "Everyone puts in the practice time and steps up when they need to, and obviously, it's showing," Anderson said. Having not lost an NAIA golf meet yet this fall, the Dakota Wesleyan University women's golf team continues to build off its winning tradition. The Tigers have won the past six Great Plains Athletic Conference championships and 11 of the last 12.
For many younger Mitchell Kernel football players, the first four games of the season have been a "trial by fire," according to head coach Kent VanOverschelde. "Injuries and different adversities have forced us to accelerate some the progress of our younger players," VanOverschelde said. "I think the trial by fire has slowed down some of those players growth, but now after gaining experience at the varsity level, those players are starting to gain confidence and move forward." MHS (1-3) has a bye week this week and is preparing to host Sioux Falls Roosevelt on Oct.
HURON -- In front of raucous Huron Tiger homecoming crowd, the Mitchell High School volleyball team failed to stay with the Tigers in a 3-0 loss on Thursday in Huron. "We're use to the loud noise because we like our gym loud, too," Kernel head coach Deb Thill said. "I thought for the most part, our young team hung in there." Mitchell fell behind early in the first set and couldn't recover as the Tigers went on to take a 1-0 lead after a 25-15 win. After the quick first set, Huron didn't waste any time jumping out ahead of the Kernels once again in the second.
