Begaman 58'11" shot
By Rich Winter
Was poking around the SDHSAA automatic state field and track leaders this morning. Hadn't looked through the Class B boys section for a few days and was stunned to see a 58'11" shot put from Herreied/Selby senior Trevor Begeman.
Holay that is a monster effort!!
Class B Shot Put - 45'01.00" (45'1") is the automatic qualifying standard)
1.Begeman, Trevor58'11.00"Herreid/Selby Area
2.Howard, Jacob51'05.50"Sully Buttes
Looked through the Class B results from a year ago and Begeman finished third in the B division behind a couple of big-time shot-putters, Canistota's Xavier Ward and Colome's Matt Campbell.
2017 Class B state boys shot put results
1 Ward, Xavier 12 Canistota 58-02.75 10
2 Campbell, Matt 12 Colome 54-06.00 8
3 Begeman, Trevor 11 Herreid/Selby Area 50-08.00 6
Don't know what the folks up in Herreid/Selby are feeding this young man but the leap to 58'11" puts Begeman in some rare air.
Top South Dakota shot-puts this season regardless of class.
1. Trevor Begeman - Herried/Selby - 58'11" (Class B)
2. 1.Kasowski, Jacob 56'03.50"Tri-Valley (Class A)
3.Colman, Erick54'09.00"Pierre T.F. Riggs (Class AA)
Digging a little deeper, Begeman's throw is about three feet away from cracking into the Top-10 for all-time shot put distances in South Dakota.

Has been a heck of a year for Begeman
Class 9A, All-State guard Trevor Begeman Herreid/Selby
This year, nearly every running play was behind him on offense, and on defense, he recorded 86 tackles, 4 sacks, 4 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries. In his career as a starter, over the course of three years, the offense rushed for 6132 yards, and in his career on defense, he recorded 157 tackles, 8 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, forced two fumbles, and recovered 4 fumbles.
"Trevor was voted MVP of our team as an offensive/defensive lineman," Randall said. "He is the best offensive lineman we have ever had in our program and has the opportunity to play collegiately. There isn't a program in the state (regardless of class) that wouldn't be better with Trevor."
Harried/Selby nearly made the Class B state basketball tournament...
Helped the Wolverines to a 17-3 regular season record. At one point this season, Herried/Selby ran off 16 straight basketball wins. The Wolverines lost a heartbreaker to Timber Lake, 58-54 in the Round-of-16.
Wow, what a great year and looking forward to the state shot put competition. Begeman is also pre-qualified in the discus and is currently ranked No. 4 in the state in that event.
