WATERTOWN, S.D.–The list of South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) sanctioned sports at Watertown High School will grow by one in the 2022-23 school year.

On Monday night, the Watertown School Board voted unanimously to offer girl’s softball as a sanctioned sport.

Superintendent Dr. Jeff Danielsen gave the board some background information…

Danielsen says schools were given three options on girls softball…

Danielsen recommended Watertown High School launch a girls softball team as a school sponsored sport.

He then talked about the startup costs….

Watertown fields a girls softball team now, but it’s a club sport that is not sanctioned by the SDHSAA.
