Future of South Dakota All-Star Games in Aberdeen Uncertain
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — The future of the South Dakota All-Star Games in Aberdeen is uncertain, as organizers grapple with a number of issues.
The summer all-star games for football, basketball and volleyball involve high school graduates from the past spring. They've been played in Aberdeen for 28 of the past 29 years. But officials say interest has faded, and the South Dakota High School Coaches Association has decided to stop helping Aberdeen with the games.
The American News reports all-star organizers in Aberdeen hope to meet in coming weeks to determine whether to continue with the games — and, if so, in which sports and in what format.
If organizers decide to move forward, they'd have to work with the coaches association for each individual sport, rather than the overall coaches association.
