Some of the Brightest stars never have the opportunity to shine on the Big-Stage

Menno sophomore Morgan Edelman had a gigantic sophomore campaign for the Wolves. At center, Kaylee Eisenbraun just missed going over 1000 points for her career at Kadoka. At right, Kadoka senior Alyssa Civitak went over the 1000 point barrier just before the end of the season.

Well, tonight across South Dakota all heck is about to break loose. SoDak 16 games for the Class B girls, along with Region semis for the Class A girls take place. Tomorrow it is the Class A boys, Class B boys region semis and the AA boys and girls rounds of 16 games.

There is going to be triumphant cheers tonight and a lot of broken hearts tomorrow morning for a bunch of kids that have worked their tails off and pumped life into small towns across South Dakota.

Wanted to mention a couple of players that had both outstanding seasons and careers.

Morgan Edelman - sophomore (Menno) - Wow did this young lady have a superb season…22.2 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 2.6 apg, 3.7 steals per game. This young lady looks to be a top prospect coming out of the Class of 2021…The team had 14 wins this season, one more than the 2018/2018 campaign.

Alyssa Civitak - Senior (Kadoka) - Steady as she goes for Civitak who has been part of some tremendous volleyball and basketball programs in Kadoka. Civitak went over 1000 pointer for her career just before the end of the season. This year, she averaged 11.2 ppg!

Kaylee Eisenbraun - Senior (Kadoka) - Talk about a talented 3-sport athlete for the Kadoka Kougars. A good high-jumper, long-jumper in track, Eisenbraun will now turn her attention to field and track. Like Civitak, Eisenbraun has been part of some great volleyball and basketball teams for the past four seasons. Those Kadoka teams won a LOT of big games in the last four years.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll take a look at some of the other shining stars across South Dakota that had great seasons or never had the opportunity to make the big dance..
