PIERRE, S.D. (GoWatertown.net) — At their April meeting, the Board of Directors of the South Dakota High School Activities Association conducted a first reading related to state events for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 basketball tournaments and all events for the 2023-24 school year.
Assistant Executive Director of the South Dakota High School Activities Association Dr. John Krogrstrand says with the combined state tournaments going away, they needed to revise some of their state contracts:
In basketball, Watertown is a proposed site for the Girls Class B tournament in 2022. The Watertown Civic Arena was already announced as the host for the Girls A Tournament in 2021.
The Girls B would move back to Huron in 2023. Frost Arena in Brookings is a proposed site for the Girls A in 2022 and 2024 and Girls AA in 2023. Rapid City was proposed to host Boys and Girls A in 2021 and the Boys AA in 2023. The Sioux Falls proposal includes the AA Boys in 2022 and A Boys and Girls in 2023.
