Letcher

On Saturday, Dec. 16, the Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Club, Blue Group hosted the Letcher Community Christmas.
Nathan Linke visited with the group about attending Teen Leadership Camp on the SDSU campus next June.
First, members went caroling, starting at Jake’s Lounge as a large group. Then, they split into smaller groups and went to homes.
After caroling, families in the 4-H club provided soup, sandwiches, and goodies, and then Bingo was enjoyed by all. Approximately 80 people attended.

Freshman Myah Selland and junior Macy Miller led the Jackrabbits with 14 points and seven rebounds each in the team’s loss against No. 4/5 Louisville on Sunday afternoon at the Frost Arena in Brookings. The Jackrabbits looked like they were going to pull off an upset in the first half of the game, and they played right with the highly ranked team until the Cardinals outscored the Jacks 22-18 in the fourth quarter to win 68-64 in the hard-fought battle.
The Jackrabbits will return to action on Wednesday, Dec. 6, when they host Oklahoma at 7 p.m. in the Frost Arena.
