No Events Scheduled

SDSU SOCCER…The University of North Dakota soccer team's game against South Dakota State scheduled for Sunday was canceled due to unplayable field conditions. Overnight rains led to standing water on Bronson Field.
For the time being, the game against the Jackrabbits has not been rescheduled.
Powered by three second half goals, including two from junior Kirstyn Gorder, the Creighton women's soccer team defeated South Dakota State 3-2 Friday.
The Jackrabbits struck first in the 56th minute as Diana Potterveld collected a deflected shot by Rice and hammered home her second try to give SDSU a 1-0 lead. Shelby Raper scored the other goal, assisted by Potterveld.
Creighton outshot South Dakota State 14-11 in the second half and 19-17 for the game. The Bluejays also held a 5-0 edge on corner kicks.

BHS SOCCER…Saturday was not a good day for the Brookings High School soccer teams.
Pierre’s girls varsity defeated Brookings 5-0, but the Bobcat J-V team came up with a 2-1 win.
The Governors defeated the Brookings boys’ varsity 3-1, but the Bobcat J-V posted a 3-1 win.

HURON FB…The Huron Tiger football team is looking to improve on last years 3-6 record – not an easy task when they have to replace 11 seniors, including three All-ESD Conference performers.
Head coach Mike Postma says extra practice time this pre-season has been beneficial. 97621 :29 "this fall".
With low numbers on the roster, Postma says conditioning will be important. 97622 :18 "kind of thing".
Postma says the Tigers’ early schedule is challenging. 97623 :35 "after it".
Senior linebacker Houston Heinz is a returning all conference player for Huron. The Tigers will kick off the new season at Brookings Friday night at 7:00.

NFL CUTS…Former University of South Dakota standout Tyler Starr survived the first wave of roster cuts by the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The team trimmed its roster down to 75 players.
As part of the NFL’s mandatory roster cuts, the Falcons will have to be down to 53 players by Saturday. The team can then establish a 10-man practice squad beginning on Sunday.

KAUFMANN GOLF…So Yeon Ryu missed out on the LPGA Tour's 72-hole scoring record, settling instead for a title at the LPGA Canadian Women's open on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Clark native Kim Kaufman fired a 5-under 66 to climb from ninth into a tie for fifth place alongside Danielle Kang of the U.S.
Its Kaufman's second-best LPGA finish. She finished tied for fourth place at the North Texas LPGA Shootout in May. Kaufman entered the day at 79th on the money list with $87,192 in earnings. She earned $83,061 on Sunday and ended the day 49th on the money list ($170,253).
