     Traveling from city to city, state to state, the All American Red Heads was a touring basketball team that entertained crowds across the United States for a half-century from 1936 to 1986. Each year the team covered thousands of miles.

     One of the more acclaimed players to ever suit up for the Red Heads was a talented young woman from Parkston. Allegra Winter and her Red Heads teammates made a significant contribution to the evolution of women’s sports in our country. Learn about her in the 2021 Fall Newsletter of the South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

     Among other featured stories is a look at a player with roots in South Dakota who moved from the state and became a national record holder with a career unsurpassed by any other prep in the history of high school basketball in America.
