Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

         Friends of the South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame have received the 2014 Fall Newsletter.

        The newsletter is free and was sent Dec. 1 to those on the Hall of Fame mailing list. If you do not receive a copy and would like one, email your name and home address to Or phone executive director Dave Wagner at (605) 467-3010. You will then be sent a copy and will be placed on our mailing list to receive future newsletters.

        There are 12 pages in the newsletter, which features a comprehensive story about Cheyenne Indian Agency’s memorable championship quest in the late 1950s. Unforgettable players who performed admirably for the Braves during their 1959 state-title season included Freddie Knife, Mel Bagola, Bob Mandan and Chet Condon.

        Another among several noteworthy stories examines the importance of Catholic high school basketball in South Dakota and the excitement associated with the Catholic state tournament that was held from 1937 through 1964.

        The newsletter explores topics that are of interest to all basketball fans. We hope you enjoy it.
