SDHSAA Votes Against Freeman/Canistota Co-op

Friday, August 28, 2015

On Thursday morning, the South Dakota High School Activities Association voted 6-2 against a cooperative agreement between the Freeman & Canistota football programs. Earlier this month, Freeman shut down their program for the next two seasons due to lack of participation. Last week, the Canistota School Board discussed & approved a cooperative agreement to allow those from Freeman a place to play this season.

The stipulation of the cooperative between both schools hinged on that Canistota would not jump from their current 9A rank to a higher class. According to SDHSAA Executive Assistant Director John Krogstrand, if Canistota were to acquire Freeman’s players it would put them over the 9-man limit essentially forcing them into a higher class.

With the decision, Freeman still plans on fielding a junior varsity team this season. This is the second time this month that the SDHSAA has dealt with this issue, the first coming in mid-August with Miller & Highmore-Harrold.

Pierre Club Fast Pitch Opens First-Ever Season

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

The first-ever Pierre Club Fast Pitch softball team lost two one-run games on opening day. In a JV doubleheader with Yankton that was played in Sioux Falls, Pierre dropped both games by identical scores of 11-10.

Pierre opened up a 7-0 lead over the first two innings in game one. Yankton rallied over the next three innings to tie it up. Pierre then strung together a three-run inning & regained a 10-7 lead. Yankton would then bounce back with four runs in the bottom of the sixth to post the walk-off win.

Neither team led by more than three runs in the second game. Pierre again had a fast start, holding a 4-1 after two innings, but couldn’t put the game away. Trailing 11-7 late in the game, Pierre got a couple of timely hits to push three runs across before stranding the tying run at 2nd base. In the final inning, Yankton set Pierre down in order to escape with another 11-10 win. There are a total of 18 players on the first-year club. Pierre's next action will be a doubleheader in Mitchell on Sunday afternoon.
