Pierre, SD (KWSN) - The SDHSAA Survey on Championship event sites conducted this spring has come back with a favorable vote for Sioux Falls and some good news for other communities in the state as well.
According to the online poll, sponsored by Sanford Health and First Premier Bank, 52% of High School fans, parents, and participants say Sioux Falls is their top choice for a state championship destination. An additional 17% say it would be their second choice. Rapid City was second with 15% of the first choice vote and 33% second pick.
The good news for other communities came in the survey’s section on selection of championship communities, where well over 50% of respondents said the SDHSAA should continue the practice of rotating championship events among the state’s largest communities. 46% percent of survey takers also said they don’t want the Association to select a permanent site for championship events.
Complete survey results will be posted on the SDHSAA website Friday.
