STATE "B" AMATEUR…A three-run eighth inning carried Clark over Northville 14-12 in an opening-round game of the South Dakota Class B state amateur baseball tournament Thursday at Mitchell. Jake Esser went 3-for-5 with four RBIs to lead the Clark Traders. Brady Welk went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBIs and Bryce DesLauriers added three hits and two RBIs for the Traders.
The Akron Rebels jumped out to a seven-run lead after the first inning and didn’t look back as they beat the Milbank Firechiefs 7-0. Jared Kirkeby pitched a complete-game three-hit shutout with five strikeouts to lead Akron. Jeff Gacke went 1-for-4 with two RBIs and Brett Stolpe added two hits to lead the Rebels. Taking the loss for Milbank was Lance Frogner, who gave up seven runs on six hits in eight innings with nine strikeouts. Adam Mills had two of the Firechiefs’ three hits.
The Wynot Expos outlasted Lennox 2-1. Kyle Wiepen and Matt Hames each had an RBI for Wynot with Wiepen going 2-for-4 to lead the team. Scott Heimes and Lee Heimes each scored a run for the Expos. Scott Morrison earned the win on the mound for Wynot, pitching a complete game, allowing one run off seven hits and striking out nine.
Plankinton defeated Beresford 10-4. No details were available.

POST 22 LOSS… Sloppy defense reared its ugly head for Rapid City Post 22 Thursday night to open the Central Plains Regional American Legion baseball tournament in Fargo.
The Hardhats, 41-21, saw their 14-game win streak snapped in a tough way as host Fargo Post 2 took advantage of seven Rapid City errors for a 14-7 win. The loss drops Post 22 into the loser’s bracket, where it will face Omaha Creighton Prep. Creighton Prep lost to St. Cloud, Minn., 10-0.

NCAA GOVERNANCE… The NCAA Board of Directors has overwhelmingly approved a package of historic reforms that will give the nation's five biggest conferences the ability to unilaterally change some of the basic rules governing college sports.
If the 16-2 decision stands, there will be striking differences between the 65 largest schools and the more than 280 others in Division I beginning as early as Oct. 1, though few expect change to come that quickly.
Representatives the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC will hold nearly twice as much voting power as any other group on a newly created council, where most legislation will be approved or rejected.
The legislation still could be overridden in the next 60 days.
