Two Rapid City Stevens student-athletes sign letters of intent
RAPID CITY, S.D. – This week marked an important time for several Rapid City area student-athletes as they signed their National Letters of Intent on Wednesday to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level.
Jamison Pfingston, RC Stevens
Jamison Pfingston from Rapid City Stevens signed a letter of intent to compete in men’s tennis at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Pfingston is one of the top ranked tennis players in the state and he finished third in both flight one singles and flight one doubles at the 2019 state boys tennis tournament.
“I just thought it was a great school just because they have good weather there and it’s a good place in the country,” Jamison Pfingston said. “So I think it will really take my academics and athletics to another level there.”
Celeste Katcheak, RC Stevens
Meanwhile, Celeste Katcheak will compete in women’s wrestling next year at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.
Katcheak recently finished third at the Rapid City Invitational Wrestling Tournament.
She will join her sister who’s a sophomore on the Jamestown wrestling team.
“I’ve been to Jamestown my sophomore year to visit it with my sister when she signed and I liked it,” Celeste Katcheak said. “It’s a nice small campus and they have a nice wrestling room and workout area.”
