More summer nights of baseball and beer may be in order for Mitchell. The Northwoods League, the wood-bat summer league for collegiate players with dreams of playing in the majors, is in the process of pursuing an affiliate franchise in Mitchell, Northwoods League Chairman Dick Radatz Jr. told The Daily Republic on Friday.
HURON—Mandy Schmidt probably won't shoot a better air ball in her life. With the Kernels down 62-61 with less than a minute left in overtime, Schmidt took a long 3-pointer from the right wing which overshot the hoop but landed in the waiting hands of Chelsea Brewster, who laid the ball in. The shot gave Mitchell a 63-62 lead and the Kernels (4-18) didn't turn back, picking up a 66-62 win in the District 3AA third-place game to advance to a state-qualifying Region 2AA contest on Monday at Rapid City Central.
For the second time this season, Avon and Tripp-Delmont/Armour will meet in girls basketball. And this time, it's for a trip to the state tournament. It's a battle between the old guard in Region 6B in the Pirates, who are the defending champions and in the game for a third straight season against the upstart Nighthawks, who don't have a senior on the roster and are enjoying their best season in years. The game is at 7:30 p.m. today at the Corn Palace.
PIERRE — After four years in Class B for most sports, Platte-Geddes is moving back up in classification once more. The Black Panthers are the lone area school changing athletic classifications in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years, moving from Class B to Class A. The South Dakota High School Activities Association Board of Directors approved class and district/region assignments for the next two years on first reading Wednesday in Pierre. The assignments will likely be approved in April at the board's next meeting.
For a second straight year, wrestling fans in the state of South Dakota enjoyed the buffet that is eight mats of prep wrestling all under one roof. And for a second straight year, there was proof that the tournament should never go back to any other format.
SIOUX FALLS—Stas Sutera did what he intended to do when he came back to Bon Homme/Scotland this season. After winning a championship in Canton last season, Sutera won the 132-pound championship Saturday night with an 8-0 major decision victory in the Class B state wrestling tournament at the Premier Center in Sioux Falls. In the process, he joined a list of Bon Homme wrestling legends that he said he admired.
SIOUX FALLS— A year ago, Tre`zen Doren saw a state title chance slip away in the final seconds of his Class B 285-pound championship match.

From start to finish, it was Tripp-Delmont/Armour’s night on Friday at the Corn Palace. The Nighthawks’ girls basketball team pounced for an early 12-2 lead and never let Platte-Geddes back into Friday’s District 11B girls basketball championship game, as TDA claimed a 54-42 victory. TDA will face Avon on Thursday at the Corn Palace for the Region 6B championship and the right to advance to the Class B state tournament.
PLANKINTON — After placing in the previous two Class B state wrestling tournaments, Marcus Urban can make a statement this weekend. Urban, who is 40-6 as a senior this year, is looking to close out his high school career for Mount Vernon/Plankinton/Corsica-Stickney with a state championship at 152 pounds. He will face Kyle Laubach (36-17), of Canton, in the first round, which kicks off at 10 a.m. "It's been a good year but there's more on the table," Urban said. "It's all been building to this time of the year."
