Glasgow comes to DWU from Sioux Falls where he recently finished his sixth season as an assistant coach for Augustana College. “It has been a crazy and exciting couple of weeks,” Glasgow said.
For the second time this year, the Mitchell girls held off a fourth-quarter run by Class AA newcomer Harrisburg to pick up the win. The No. 2 Kernels (12-1, 10-0 ESD) remained perfect in Eastern South Dakota Conference play with the 65-56 win over the Tigers Tuesday at the Corn Palace in Mitchell. “It’s our first go around playing at the Corn Palace,” Harrisburg coach Nick Mayer said. “We are finding out how difficult it is to play here.”
After a furious comeback in the second half, the Dakota Wesleyan University men’s basketball team could not close out No.
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.

The Warriors are 11-0 and have climbed to fourth in the most recent Class A poll, outscoring their opponents by an average of 37 points per game. “Coming into the year we knew we would be pretty good with four starters returning from last season,” Winner coach Larry Aaker said.
Macy Miller is on pace to be the most prolific scorer in the history of Kernel girls’ basketball, but her most recent milestone comes from her work under the opposing basket. With four takeaways against Sioux Falls O’Gorman Saturday, Miller passed Jenna (Hoffman) Kubesh as Mitchell’s career leader with 209 steals. Kubesh’s record of 208 was set from 1998 to 2004. “Macy continues to get stronger and smarter,” Mitchell coach Wes Morgan said.
The Tigers won their eighth game in nine tries with a last-minute boost from an unlikely role player. 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
