The new school year brings new opportunity to all South Dakota High Schools as they continue their sponsorship of interscholastic athletics and fine arts activities. An emphasis on sportsmanship and a higher regard for one’s opponents, the officials who work the games, and the student-athletes who participate have been and continue to be one of the main goals of the South Dakota High School Activities Association and its Board of Directors.
