SDHSAA hopes for resumption of sports

Because of coronavirus caution, schools in South Dakota are closed until May 4. That’s not preventing the South Dakota High School Activities Association from making plans for state tournaments once school is back in session.

The SDHSAA board of directors met by teleconference Friday morning and decided to let its staff work on planning for how sports and arts activities would take place once school resumes.

“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.
