Rapid City student-athletes to continue their careers at Division I schools
RAPID CITY, S.D. – St. Thomas More standout Haleigh Timmer signed a letter of intent on Wednesday to continue her basketball career at the Division I level.
Timmer will play women’s basketball next year for South Dakota State University in Brookings.
The 5-foot-11 guard was a member of the St. Thomas More teams that won state titles in 2017 and 2018.
She’s also the 34th ranked guard in the nation for the class of 2021 by Prospects Nation.
Last season, Timmer averaged 22.7 points, 3.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game for the Cavaliers.
Timmer is excited about competing at the next level.
“SDSU is just a great school,” Haleigh Timmer said. “It’s a great fit for me. My parents attended SDSU. On the basketball side of things, it’s a very successful program. The coaching and the culture there is just what I fit into best. On the schooling side, it really fit my academic needs. There’s a strong math program. Brookings is a very nice town and the fan base is amazing.”
Jake Goble, South Dakota State University
A pair of Post 22 players are set to take their talents to the Division I level.

The right-handed pitcher was 8-2 last season with a 1.75 ERA and 76 strikeouts.
He also hit .333 with seven home runs and 45 RBIs.

“So both my parents went to South Dakota State and they really liked it up there,” Jake Goble said. “Then when I took my visit to go to South Dakota State, I loved the atmosphere and all the people up there. I thought it was just a great fit when I went up there.”

Bransen Kuehl will play baseball next year for the University of Utah.
The Rapid City Stevens senior hit .412 last season for Post 22 with eight home runs and 42 RBIs.

“I’m excited to do both,” Bransen Kuehl said. “I think I can do it. The coaches here (Post 22) have trained me to do it. I’ve been doing it as long as I can remember. So that’s exciting and I think I can do it.”
