SDSU STADIUM… South Dakota State University officials have announced lead gifts totaling $12.5 million from Sioux Falls banker Dana Dykhouse and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford toward the construction of a new football stadium.
The proposed stadium, which would have a seating capacity of 18,500 to 20,000, would replace Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, which has served as the home of Jackrabbit football since 1962. The new stadium would be built on the current Coughlin-Alumni Stadium site, with completion scheduled for the summer of 2016.
In recent years SDSU has regularly drawn crowds well above the capacity of Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, which has permanent seating totaling about 11,000. The stadium attendance record of 16,498 was set Sept. 28, when the Jackrabbits hosted North Dakota State.
University officials will present a facility program plan for the estimated $60 million project to the South Dakota Board of Regents in December and, pending BOR approval, will seek authority from the South Dakota Legislature in the spring.
Construction would be done in phases, with the east and south sides of the stadium scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2015 and the west side finished the following year.
Plans call for the stadium to be funded through private gifts and long-term revenue streams, including concessions and suite, loge box and ticket sales. The intention is to secure bonds to finance up to two-thirds of the project’s construction with bonds, with the remaining third coming from private support. The stadium would be designed with the capability to host various events, meetings and receptions year-round.
The Dana and LaDawn Dykhouse Family and T. Denny Sanford previously provided the lead gifts for the construction of the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center located in the north end zone of Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. Attached to the north side of the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center will be the Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex, which is currently under construction.
SDSU VB… The South Dakota State volleyball team came out hot on Hobo Day against South Dakota in the South Dakota Corn Showdown Series on Saturday at Frost Arena, winning the first set 25-22, but the Coyotes came firing back to win the next three sets 25-15-25-20 and 25-18 to secure the 3-1 win.
The Jackrabbits fall to 2-14 overall with the loss, and to 0-3 in The Summit League, while the Coyotes improved to 13-6 overall and to 4-0 in league play.
Kacey Herrmann and Mikala Hora combined 15 kills in the match; nine from Herrmann and six from Hora. Herrmann also added 11 digs and Hora a trio of blocks, two block assists and one solo block.
Tiara Gibson tied a career-high in leading the Jackrabbits with 10 kills, while Wagner Larson joined Herrmann with nine kills.
Lexi Fowler tallied her second double-double of the season with 37 set assists and with 12 digs, both of which led the Jacks in the loss.
Denver defeated SDSU Friday 25-18, 25-23 and 25-18.
Wagner Larson led the Jackrabbits and tied for game-high honors with 13 kills, and hit an impressive .500 for the match (13-1-24). She also added four block assists. Lexi Fowler finished with eight each in digs and kills, and did not commit an error in 14 attacks to finish with a .471 hitting percentage.

The South Dakota State women’s soccer team won their Summit League opener on Friday night 1-0 over Western Illinois. Katie McNeary scored the game-winning goal for the Jackrabbits in the 71st minute.

SIOUX FALLS-NCAA…Sioux Falls officials are hoping to convince the NCAA to bring some of its postseason events to South Dakota's largest city.
Three representatives from the governing body of major college athletics are scheduled this week to tour the city's athletic venues and area colleges.
The city is hoping to land NCAA events like a Division I women's basketball playoff, Division I women's volleyball regional, Division II men's and women's basketball Elite Eight tournament, and others.
Sioux Falls Sports Authority Executive Director Wes Hall says while it's unlikely the city will be chosen when bids are announced in December, he believes Sioux Falls will give the NCAA something to think about.
The sports authority was founded in 2006 and has been funded largely by Sanford Health.
GFP LICENSES… The state Game, Fish & Parks Commission will propose raising hunting and fishing license fees for 2014.
Health care and salary increases were cited as the reason the increases are needed. A public hearing will be held Nov. 7 in Pierre on the proposal, which seeks to raise an extra $2 million.
Proposed increases include:
* The annual fishing license would go from $25 to $28;
* The annual small-game license would go from $30 to $33;
* The combination license (fishing and small game) would become $55 from the current $50.
Big-game license prices would increase, too.
The standard deer and antelope licenses would increase by $4. Furbearer licenses would rise to $30 from the present $25.
For non-residents, the annual fishing license would climb to $67 from $60 and big-game licenses would see increases, but there wouldn't be any change in the small-game and preserve license prices.
Those licenses are primarily used by non-residents who hunt pheasants. Those prices went up last year for non-residents to the present $121 for the 10-day small-game license and to the present $46, $76 and $121 respectively for the one-day, three-day and annual preserve licenses.
