PLAYERS OF THE MONTH
Congratulations to our March 2017 Players of the Month, Emry Heiss and Reghan Westcott! This is not the first time we’ve had two awards in one month, and with our record number of kids this year it probably won’t be the last. Click here to read more.
We had so much fun at Augustana’s Ole Open this weekend with the “18s” and 16s teams! Oahe Elite 18s battled hard with a different roster each day and are looking good going into Mitchell this weekend. A special “thank you” to Andi and Elena for playing with us this weekend. Good luck this fall and congrats on playing college ball! Oahe Elite 16s had a winning weekend with some awesome battles and comebacks, but dropped the championship match taking 2nd place.
16s and 17s – if you have not yet paid your season dues, please do so. There was a balance due invoice put in the front pocket of your backpack.
11s – Your practice on Thursday will be 6:45 – 8p due to a gym conflict. We will be taking three teams to the tournament next weekend thanks to Coach Kayla! Roster assignments will be announced before the tournament.
What an awesome weekend in Sioux Falls! All four Oahe Elite teams played in a championship game to end the day at the Big Sioux Challenge. 14-1s and 12-1s both finished first in their pool and took second in their division gold brackets, and 12-2s took second in the silver bracket. The 14-2s took first place in the bronze bracket to be the only team to end the day on a win! We came home without hardware, but definitely NOT without success and improvement.
Up this weekend are the 16s and 17s(18s) at the Ole Open (an Augustana two-day tournament). Play starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday (not the afternoon like we were originally told) and then 9 a.m. on Sunday. Click here for weekend schedules and more information. Everyone else has the weekend off.
14-1s and 12-2s DO NOT have practice on Thursday this week.
14-2s –Due to a conflict with facilities in Mitchell, your April 1 tournament will be in the afternoon (starting at 1 p.m.) instead of the morning. No schedule yet, but they did alert us of this change.
Congrats on the finishes last weekend for all three teams in competition! 12-2s took 3rd place in Miller’s East River Classic, winning two 3-game matches. The 14-1s and 16s both took first place in Pipestone, Minnesota! Great weekend all!
Also, next week we have moved all Thursday practices to Tuesday. Same time, same place. With the exception of the 14-2s who will practice all three days, and some 14-1s! Calendars on your team pages should reflect this change. Congrats Lady Govs Basketball on making it to state!

11s – please be at the gym and ready to go by 7:30 a.m.(This means arrive before 7:30 so you have time to park, find your court, and get ready). Team rosters for this weekend were announced at practice last night, and have been posted to your team page. Click here. These rosters are pending any sicknesses/absences.
12s – please be at the gym and ready to go by 1:00 p.m. (This means arrive before 1:30 so you have time to park, find your court, and get ready).
We just recieved word from the tournament director of a schedule change for th 12s teams this weekend. 11s will play in the morning as previously planned, but both 12s teams will actually play starting at Noon on Saturday. We will have more details by Wednesday (hopefully sooner) on specific timing. 11s can plan to arrive and be ready to play before 7:30, while the 12s can arrive by 10:45. Your coach will have more details.
