Nominations are being taken for the 2015-16 SDUSAW Wrestler of the Year Awards. Each year SDUSAW recognizes the top wrestler from South Dakota in each of three divisions: Women's, Youth (Bantam-Schoolboy), and High School (Cadet and Junior). If you have a wrestler that you would like to nominate for one of the three divisions, please email Chism Fink at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include wrestler's name, town, club, and accomplishments at USAW or UWW Events during the 2015-2016 Season (Sept 1, 2015-Aug 31, 2016).
On Sept. 11th SDUSAW held their annual meeting in Pierre. A new set of by-laws were adopted along with the election of officials. A quick note from the new SDUSAW Chairman Chism Fink: "We had our biggest turnout ever. I think we had twenty people present and four that phoned in for the meeting. I thank everyone who made the long or short trip to Pierre for the meeting, I think we got a lot of good input from a variety of people. SDUSAW will be going through some restructuring that I think will help the organization grow and improve very quickly. There will be a lot coming out in the next weeks, so stay tuned. By the end of this week we will have the minutes from the meeting posted along with the financial report for the year. We will also have a date and location for the state folkstyle tournament set and posted within the next two weeks, along with the qualification process for the Heartland Duals."
