“Nobody knows what the world’s going to look like a month from now,” said SDHSAA Executive Director Dan Swartos. Despite the uncertainty, the SDHSAA staff has been making plans for spring sports and activities.

Timber Lake’s quest for a third straight berth in the State Class B Boys Basketball Tournament ended last Tuesday, March 10, with a 54-47 loss to Platte-Geddes in the SoDak 16 regional championship game in Ft. Pierre.

The Panthers entered the matchup as the No. 13 seed and a heavy underdog, as the fourth-seeded Platte-Geddes Black Panthers came in with just three losses on the season and riding a 12 game win streak. But what started as a blowout turned into one of the most competitive games in the tournament, with Timber Lake overcoming double-digit deficits twice in the first half before blowing a seven point lead late in the third quarter.
