Yankton Buck Patrons,
Hard to believe it is already January 15th and the regular season is half way done. The Bucks had a great first half of the season going 9-1 overall and 4-0 in ESD conference play. The Bucks suffered their lone loss of the season to a very good Sioux Falls Lincoln team on January 5th at home. Sioux Falls Lincoln was able to take control of the game early and never looked back in rout to a 69-53 win. Yankton had held onto their #1 preseason ranking all the way up until this game. Sioux Falls Lincoln is now the lone boys AA team without a loss and ranked #1. The Bucks are now ranked #2.
The Bucks have bounced back nicely from their setback and won two home games in a row. First, Yankton defeated #3 Huron in Yankton by the score of 66-60. Sophomore Matthew Mors broke his own single game school scoring record with 45 points in the win! It was a performance for the ages!! Four days later a tough Aberdeen team came to Yankton and Cole Sawatzke lead the Bucks to a dominating 62-29 victory.
We have attacked a couple articles from our local paper the Press and Dakotan. The local media does a great job of covering our area teams. We can't thank them enough for the work they do!
