LaVALLEE FATAL…South Dakota State University cross country and track and field student-athlete Phillip LaVallee died Thursday afternoon in a car-pedestrian accident near Otsego, Minn.
   LaVallee was training for his sophomore season and was expected to be a key contributor this fall for the Jackrabbit cross country team. During his freshman season, LaVallee finished 15th overall at the 2012 Summit League Championships in helping SDSU claim the team title for the third time in four years. He also finished fifth in the 800-meter run at both the league indoor and outdoor track and field championships.
   He also was honored as a Summit League Distinguished Scholar and was named to the Summit League Honor Roll for academics while majoring in civil engineering.
   The incident remains under investigation by the Wright County Sheriff’s Office and the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.

WATERFOWL SEASONS…The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has finalized the 2013 goose seasons.
   Unit 1, which includes most parts of the state, will have a daily bag limit of eight geese. The daily limit will be four geese in Unit 2 which is comprised of counties in central South Dakota along the Missouri River, and Perkins, eastern Pennington and Fall River counties. The Unit 3 January season in Bennett County will have a daily bag limit of four geese as well.
   Canada goose season dates are Oct. 1 - Dec. 16 in Unit 1, Nov. 2-Feb. 14 in Unit 2 and Jan. 11-19 in Bennett County.
   The light goose hunting season will run from Sept. 28 - Dec. 22 with a daily limit of 20 statewide.
   The commission also finalized changes to the white-fronted goose hunting season. The season will run two weeks shorter than last year’s season and will occur from Sept. 28 - Dec. 8 in 2013. With this change comes an increase in the daily bag limit from one to two geese.
   The duck hunting season dates will be Oct. 12 - Jan. 16 for High Plains Zone; Sept. 28 - Dec. 10 for Low Plains North and Middle Zones; and, Oct. 12-Dec. 24 for Low Plains South Zone.
   The daily duck limit is six and may be comprised of no more than five mallards (two of which can be hens), three wood ducks, three scaup, two redheads, two pintails or two canvasbacks.
   The possession limit for all waterfowl seasons has been increased from twice the daily limit to three times the daily limit.

IA ST BACKERS…Iowa State had the luxury of leaning on one of nation's best linebacker duos of Jake Knott and A.J. Klein for the past three years.
   Both are now in the NFL, and how the Cyclones fill their void may be crucial to their success in 2013.
   Iowa State has to replace a pair of first-team All-Big 12 performers from the same position group. Knott and Klein were the centerpiece of coordinator Wally Burnham's defense — and both were capable of game-changing plays.
   The Cyclones will instead rely on senior captain Jeremiah George, who was selected to the Butkus Award watch list, and junior Jevohn Miller.

KNOXVILLE…Donny Schatz charged from the back of the field Saturday night to win the Knoxville Nationals sprint car race for the seventh time in eight years.
   Schatz earned $150,000 for winning the world's premier sprint car event. Schatz started 21st, the furthest back of any winner at the nationals.
   Brian Brown was second, followed by Justin Henderson, Paul McMahan and Chad Kemenah.
   The race came less than a week after NASCAR star Tony Stewart, Schatz's team owner, broke his leg racing sprint cars in nearby Oskaloosa.
   Fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Larson finished sixth.
