From a 2-8 start in league play to one game away from a championship, the Dakota Wesleyan University baseball team has come a long way in 2014.

The first day of the Great Plains Athletic Conference baseball tournament was filled with upsets as three lower seeds came out on top in the first round and No. 1 seed Doane College was eliminated with two losses.

The countdown has started and the shot clock is coming to South Dakota Class A basketball, unless a constitutional change spearheaded by the Canton School District in the final hour sounds a buzzer. Canton started a petition to have a vote for a constitutional bylaw, which would be the first and only sport-specific bylaw in the state’s constitution, to keep the South Dakota High School Activities Association from being able to enforce a ruling to require the use of shot clocks for Class A boys and girls basketball starting in the 2014-15 season. According to estimates from several Class
The shot clock is coming to South Dakota Class A high school basketball in 2014-15, assuming a constitutional amendment doesn’t thwart the change. My first thought was how the pace of the game will be changed.
