In a 68-42 win over the Yankton Gazelles Friday at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, Miller obliterated the record, pouring in 43 points for the Kernels. “The game was going by so fast that I really had no idea,” Miller said about her fast start in the first half that set her up to break the record.

The Parkston boys’ basketball team had trouble breaking the pressure of Aberdeen Roncalli in the first half of a 63-39 loss in the Hanson Boys Corn Palace Classic Saturday at the Corn Palace in Mitchell. The Cavaliers (9-1), who are receiving votes in the Class A rankings, forced 16 turnovers – 11 in the first half – and took 21 more shots than the Trojans in the win. “We haven’t seen pressure like that a lot this year and we just stuck our heads down and didn’t see the court very well,” Parkston coach Craig Bruening said.

With forwards Luke Bamberg, Stephen Lee and Jalen Voss fouling out late, the Dakota Wesleyan University men’s basketball team turned to freshman Eric Warkenthien to help seal an 84-81 win over Briar Cliff University Wednesday at the Corn Palace in Mitchell. “The guy is sitting on the end of the bench and comes in to make a big free throw when we needed it,” first year DWU coach Matt Wilber said of Warkenthien, who had not played until the final minute of the game. “It is the essence
