Hodges shared this week's honor with North Dakota State left-hander Parker Trewin.

Berg was the medalist Monday, firing a 2-under-par 69. Sinksen, the head golf professional at Elmwood Golf Course in Sioux Falls, shot an even-par 71 and earned the second automatic berth after defeating Max Donohue of Sioux Falls on the first playoff hole.
Drew Trautman of Clear Lake shot 75.
STARR…Area football fans are awaiting this week’s National Football League draft – some of them hoping South Dakota linebacker Tyler Starr will be selected.
But Coyote head coach Joe Glenn says it may be better for Starr to go to a camp as an undrafted free agent, instead of a late-round pick. 97625 :16 “kind of interesting”.
Glenn told the Ranch AM910 during the “Sports Show” he’s confident Starr can play in the NFL. 97626 :40 “with that guy”.

BB BUS…It’s the South Dakota Basketball Hall of Fame – on wheels.
The green-and-white bus is parked at the Eastside Commons in Brookings through Friday – then will be moved to the Antique Car Museum at Murdo.
Myron Moen of Sisseton bought the bus in Oklahoma with the idea of making it into a camper – instead, it became a basketball shrine. 97627 :22 “got its start”.
Moen says a committee of five selected the players, coaches and teams on the bus. 97628 :16 “place for “em”.
He says response to the bus has been “awesome”. 97629 :15 “never knew that”.
The bus was a precursor to the state Basketball Hall of Fame, which is housed in the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. The South Dakota hall is only the second in the nation – Indiana had the first state basketball Hall of Fame.
