Undated (KELO-AM) South Dakota's first openly gay coach will be allowed to continue coaching girl's high school volleyball at Dell Rapids-St. Mary's, a Catholic school in Dell Rapids.
Nate Alfson says he couldn't be happier. He says Catholic school officials said very positive things about him as a coach personally. Now he says he wants to move foreward and focus on volleyball.
The Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese released a statement, essentially saying that same-sex attraction in itself is not a sin, but that gay sex is - in fact, any sex outside marriage is.
Alfson went public with his homosexuality on a website earlier this month.
