RAPID CITY—Burke/South Central was prepared for it and had seen it once already this season. But the Cougars still couldn't stop the tall and powerful Warner Monarchs on Thursday.

"They are a very good attacking team," MCM coach Tami Bies said. "They are a very good serving team and because of those things, they took us out of our normal system on our offense."

Jeremiah Panec is ready for another national cross country meet with a different preparation plan.

This year's national meet is Saturday in Vancouver, Washington. He's going into this year's race better prepared after struggling at last year's nationals in Elsah, Illinois.
The Dakota Wesleyan University football team didn't hear its name called during the NAIA Playoff Selection Show on Sunday. But unlike previous years, the Tigers didn't have much of a chance to make the 16-team field on the final day of the season, officially ending the 2017 campaign for the Tigers.
