Winner High School

It’s fair season. But in the midst of a pandemic, 4-H Achievement Days will look a bit different for many of South Dakota’s more than 9,000 4-H members as South Dakota 4-H works to keep youth, volunteers and community members safe in counties across South Dakota. SDPB’s Lura Roti has this story.

For more than a century, 4-H members like Natoli have worked on projects that put this pledge into action. And the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic didn’t change that explains Tim Tanner, SDSU Extension State 4-H Program Director.

Twelve more games are on the schedule for State High School Football Playoffs tonight (Monday).  One of the most highly-regarded teams in Class 11-B will play this evening without a teammate.  South Dakota Public Broadcasting’s Gary Ellenbolt looks at how players and coaches deal with a tragic loss off the field.

Last month, SDPB photographer Andrew Bork and I spent a day in Winner, covering the Warriors football team for a piece called “Warrior Gameday.”  One member of that squad was number 66, Taylor Watzel.
