As a starter at Northeast, Theis recorded 525 kills and averaged 4.41 kills per set, ranking second in the conference in kills and kills per set. She also registered 30 service aces, 457 digs and 15 solo blocks and helped the Hawks to a 15-21 record in the program’s first season of volleyball since the sport was reinstated after a 10-year absence.
Theis joins a South Dakota State squad that returns five starters and 11 letterwinners and welcomes seven newcomers.

GRABOWSKI-BLIZZARD…The new assistant coach of the Brookings Blizzard hockey team is settling in to his role.
Kyle Grabowski spent the last for season with the Idaho Junior Steelheads, leading the team to second place in the Tier Three national championship.
He played collegiately at Marian University, and high school hockey at Oakdale, MN.
Grabowski says his perspective changed as a coach. 97624 :33 "part of coaching".
He says, during his stay in Idah, he learned how to work hard, and recruit talent. 97625 :16 "learned out there".
Grabowski says he likes a mix of speed, and physical play. 97626 :16 "or sit back".
The Blizzard have a couple of tryout camps coming up before training camp begins next month.
LEIF-FLOODING…The Game, Fish and Parks Department’s wildlife director says this spring’s excessive rainfall is a double-edged sword.
Tony Leif says the moisture is good for habitat for pheasants, deer and other animals. He says normal precipitation is best – too little or too much causes problems. 97621 :28 "covered with water".
Even with flooding that’s occurred, Leif says officials are optimistic about pheasant numbers. 97622 :23 "huge negative impact".
Leif says areas that seem to be doing best, have received a bit more than normal rainfall. 97623 :29 "across the state".
Officials will have a much better idea of pheasant numbers in August, when they run their annual brood counts.
WALLEYE CHANGE…The 15-inch minimum length limit for walleye on Lakes Sharpe and Francis Case will be removed Tuesday. Starting then, four walleye can be harvested per angler per day. Of those four walleye, only one can be over 20 inches.
The change is outlined in the fishing handbook and printed on signs at all popular boat ramps as well as shore fishing locations.
Beginning Sept. 1, harvest regulations on Lakes Sharpe and Francis Case will consist of four walleye per angler per day all of which must be over 15 inches. However, only one walleye can be greater than 20 inches.
