With October approaching, high school football teams are preparing to launch their post-season runs.  A few schools are also going through Homecoming festivities.  But in two schools in the central part of the state, a long-time Homecoming tradition is getting careful scrutiny.

Pierre in Class A and Canton in Class B are champions in State Wrestling. The state tournaments concluded at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City on Saturday night.

Last season, Canton was ranked first, but then fell to third at state. The C-Hawks co-head coach Jeremy Swenson says it’s a fantastic feeling to answer this season with a state title. Swenson appreciates the support the team received from the many Canton fans, who made the 350 plus mile journey across the state for the event.
