After almost a two-month coaching search Black Hills State University has announced the hiring of Seth Mischke as the new Yellow Jacket head track and field coach.

Mischke, a native of Worland, Wyoming, previously served as both the head track and field and head cross country coach for the past 12 seasons at St. Cloud State. He was twice named the conference coach of the year. A graduate from the University of Minnesota in 1997, Mischke was a consistent performer on the Golden Gophers track and field squad.

Seth brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position. He will help lead the Yellow Jacket track and field program through the NCAA Division II transition.

Legion Baseball in the Northern Hills is complete for another summer. Lead-Deadwood Post 31 completed its season at the State B Legion Tournament in Winner. Lead-Deadwood finished the summer with a 29-15 record and Region champs. Spearfish Post 164 was the first team eliminated at the Region 3A Tournament and finished the year 28-28. Sturgis Post 33 was also eliminated early at the Region 3A Tournament in Rapid City and finished the year 22-20.

Now, the fall sports season is rapidly drawing near. KDSJ has released its 2011 High School and College Football broadcast schedule. You can go to and check what we will be up to on Friday and Saturday nights this fall. We kick off the year with Douglas at Lead-Deadwood on Friday, August 26 in an early Black Hills Conference match-up.

Until then, time for a little r and r and listen to the roar of the bikes.
