South Dakota high school sports to move forward this fall

PIERRE, S.D. – During a time of cancellations and postponements, the South Dakota High School Activities Association Board of Directors gave the go ahead on Wednesday to proceed with fall sports and activities as scheduled.

The committee’s 17-page document listed several recommendations including safety protocols pertaining to athlete screening and the handling of confirmed positive cases.

The task force also offered guidelines concerning fan attendance, as well as, how to conduct bus trips.

South Dakota now joins Iowa, Nebraska and North Dakota who have all decided to proceed forward with having a fall sports season.

However, Cheyenne Eagle Butte announced that they will begin the school year with virtual learning and then reassess the situation in October.

That means the Braves will not be competing in any sports this fall.
