BROOKINGS-The South Dakota High School Activities Association Board of Directors recently approved playing the 2019 football championships at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium on the campus of South Dakota State University. Due to a Saturday home game for SDSU, all of the championship contests will be played over two days instead of the customary three.

The schedule for those two days of finals will be as follows:

Thursday, Nov. 14:

• Class 9A- 11 a.m.

• Class 9AA- 1:45 p.m.

• Class 9B- 4:30 p.m.

• Class 11A- 7:15 p.m.

Friday, Nov. 15:

• Class 11AA- Noon

• Class 11B- 3:30 p.m.

• Class 11AAA- 7 p.m.

Due to a scheduling conflict with the Class AA SoDak 16 volleyball dates on Nov. 14, the SDHSAA has made the decision to not separate the 11AA and 11AAA contests by date and will instead separate them with the 11B contest. The SDHSAA has added extra time in-between the 11AA and 11B contests to help avoid congestion and to help with traffic flow, parking and access.
