2019 Varsity State Tournament

2019 SDAHA Varsity Tournament

Scheduling Change for Friday 3/15/19 (Updated 3/14/19 5:33pm)

From SDAHA: 

Thank you for being patient.  This has been a heck of a day.  Here is where we are as of right now.  We are hoping that by making this change, we will not have to make further changes and we can move forward safely with the tournament.

Nathan had spoken to the DOT Operations Director.  His ESTIMATION was that roads would be passable and in GOOD condition as per the following:  

     I90 west of Chamberlain at 11AM Friday

     US 14 West of approx Wolsey 12PM Friday.

     Other US HWY routes (212, 281, etc) the same as 14.

We know this is not an ideal format for anyone.  However, we feel this is our best option given the hand we have been dealt.  Thanks again for your patience.  See you this weekend!
