Rapid City Marshals looking to build off first preseason game
The Rapid City Marshals are looking to take more than game tape away from the teams matchup against the Colorado Grey Hawks.
RAPID CITY, S.D. — It was an interesting start to the Rapid City Marshals debut on Saturday.
Before the Marshals’ first game, a preseason outing against the Colorado Grey Hawks, the team was seeking volunteers Saturday morning to help finish setting up the field at the Summit Arena.
Due to facing a worker shortage, the owners and the crew began working last night and then offered tickets to roughly 20 volunteers to finish setting up the turf.
While the game gave the team a chance to see its talent on the field, Marshals officials say it also will help them in planning the off field needs moving forwards.
“You know in its preseason game, there’s going to be hiccups, but we will overcome them,” said Tel Koan, the Co-Owner of the Rapid City Marshals. “You know, that’s the best part about having to kind of pretend. It’s like a glorified practice, to (where we realize) oh, we need this. We need that or we need to do this differently next time. So after this that April 2 game, the first CIF regular season game gets in Topeka Tropics, you can bet we’ll be ready.”
