SIOUX FALLS -- Although she did not live up to her own expectations, Scotland discus thrower Carley Skorepa's best was plenty to take the title at the Class B state track and field meet Friday at Howard Wood Field. The junior's best toss of 127 feet, 3 inches was nearly 10 feet better than the second-place throw from Warner's McKenzie Bierman, giving Skorepa her first state title to add to the throwing legacy of her family. Skorepa placed fourth in the discus in 2013 for Scotland. "I didn't throw my best today, but it's a state title so it's really exciting," Skorepa said.
After competing in the long jump as a freshman in the Howard Wood Dakota Relays, Hudson Priebe was mistakenly announced as “Houston” several times before it was corrected. Now a senior, the former state champion in the 110-meter hurdles is well known around the South Dakota track and field community. Priebe will compete in his final meet as a member of the Chamberlain Cubs boys track and field team at the Class A state meet starting with preliminaries at 9 a.m. today in Madison. “He is just a real special kid and very humble,” Chamberlain track and field coach Jerry Rhodes Jr. said.
Mitchell Christian track and field coach Bob Lemon has been impressed this season with the consistency of thrower Chandler Nelson, who will compete in the discus and the shot put for the Golden Eagles at the Class B state meet today. Nelson, a junior, heads into the Class B state track and field finale as the top seed in the boys discus with a qualifying throw of 174 feet, 10 inches.

BONESTEEL — The Platte-Geddes girls 800-meter relay team came into the Region 6B track and field meet Thursday in Bonesteel with a final chance to qualify for state, and did just that. The team of sophomore Reganne Engebretson, freshman Jada Nelson, eighth-grader Sarah Erickson and senior Brianna Erickson took first place in the event with a time of 1 minute, 51.10 seconds, topping second-place Corsica/Stickney by more than a second. “It feels really good to qualify for state today because we have spent the second half of the season working on our relays,” Brianna Erickson said.
Shelby Assmus, of Stickney, was named to the All-Summit League in the shot put and the hammer throw following her performance at the conference championships last weekend. The senior finished second in the hammer throw with a toss of 51.02 meters, just behind teammate Amy Paulzine.
Canistota’s Drew Seubert took a lead into the second round of the Class B boys state tournament for the second straight year, but this time held off the competition to take home the title. Seubert followed up his strong 73 from Monday with a 78 in the second round Tuesday at Wild Oak Golf Course in Mitchell.
Heading into the final few holes, Scotland’s Maggie Fiscel had no clue she was sitting at the top of the individual leaderboard Tuesday at Lakeview Municipal Golf Course in Mitchell. The freshman carded an 87 Tuesday in the final round to win the Class B girls golf tournament, after carrying a five-stroke lead into the final round having shot a 78 Monday. “I didn’t really believe it when I was told,” Fiscel said moments after finding out she won the individual title. “I didn’t expect to win coming into the tournament.
SPEARFISH — Parkston girls golf coach Tyler Hockett called his team’s accomplishment a feat rarely seen in any sport, at any level. The Trojans took their third consecutive team state title at the Class A girls tournament Tuesday at the Spearfish Canyon Country Club with a score of 708, which was 16 strokes better than second-place Sioux Falls Christian. “It was truly a team effort,” Sydney Bormann said.
