On the night in which Mitchell alumna Macy Miller broke the South Dakota State University women's basketball career scoring record, Plankinton native Megan Bultsma also had a big night.

The 6-foot-3 junior scored a career-high 10 points on 5 of 7 shooting, while grabbing seven rebounds in just 13 minutes of the Jackrabbits' 97-49 rout of Savannah State on Dec. 14 at Frost Arena.

Bultsma had never reached double figures in 38 total appearances in the last three seasons, with a previous scoring high of eight points in a win at Omaha last season. She is averaging 3.3 points per game on 9-for-15 shooting in six outings this year.

South Dakota State (8-4) travels to Wyoming on Friday.

Tabor native and former Bon Homme-Scotland standout Dan Stibral is finding his stride for the North Dakota State University wrestling team, which is currently ranked No. 20 in the nation.

A redshirt junior, Stibral has amassed a 14-4 record at 285 pounds for the Bison, which includes four pins.

The highlight of Stibral's season thus far is winning the Jimmie Open, hosted by Jamestown University on Nov. 3, in which he scored four victories, including 3-1 decision over Concordia's Noah Carter in the finals.

Most recently, though, Stibral placed second at the UNI Open, picking up three wins in a row before falling to Iowa's Tony Cassioppi.
