This Weeks PACA Athletes Of The Week

Congratulations to Austin Hoss and the Pierre girls soccer team for being chosen as PACA Athletes of the Week!

Austin shot a 6-under par round in Harrisburg to win 1st Place at the ESD Meet.  Not only did Austin decide to finish his ESD Conference with a win he went on to win the 2017 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP on October 2/3 at Pierre.  He shot a two day total of 137 (69/68) which is now the NEW State Meet Record!  This was a goal he set for himself the very instant he walked off the podium at the 2016 State Meet where he finished 4th place!

The Lady Govs defeated Sioux Falls O’Gorman 3-0 in the state championship game on Saturday, October 7, 2017.  They controlled the game from the beginning and possessed the ball well over two thirds of the match. The defense also put in a dominating performance such that their opponent had only two legitimate shots on goal.   It was a dominating victory and is the first ever girls soccer state championship for Pierre high school.  The Lady Govs finished the season with 12 wins, one loss and two ties and also are the 2017 ESD conference champions.
