KIPI Radio Sports is excited to be bringing you up to the minute sports action from the 46th annual Lakota Nation Invitation.

Yesterday there was a full day of wrestling activities with a couple of repeat winners from Lakota Tech High School, but Bennett County came away with a solid team victory with 219.5 points. Lakota Tech put up 104 McLaughlin scored 101 for 123 in teams.

Cheyenne River Athletes: Tripp Schrempp of CEB in the 144 division defeated Dayton Eagle Bull to place 3rd .  Xadyn Laplante was second place for the 126 division.

Lakota Girl’s wrestling was won by Lakota Tech. Lakota Tech edged out Rapid City Stevens in the girls’ wrestling meet at the Lakota Nation Invitational on Tuesday at Summit Arena. The Tatanka scored 155 points, just ahead of Rapid City Stevens’ 145. 

Custer finished third (85.5), followed by Winnebago (69), Pine Ridge (66), Todd County (43), White Shield (18), Bennett County- (14), McLaughlin (11), Tiospa Zina, Red Cloud (3), Little Wound and Valentine (0).

Lakota Tech won five divisions, followed by RC Stevens with three. Custer won two divisions, Pine Ridge won two and Winnebago won one division. 

Today’s basketball games started with Red Cloud girls decimating the Tiospaye Zina team. 93-19.  

Our first game was the Dupree Lady Tigers vs. the Wall Lady Eagles.  The Dupree Tigers was the only team in our region to make it to the Oceti Sakowin Bracket. Taylee Jewett threw in the first points with a three pointer and ended with 20, but the Dupree Lady Tigers were no match for the seasoned Wall Lady Eagles and fell 71-53. Tomorrow’s Dupree Lady Tiger game will be in Ice Arena at 5:00. They’ll be playing the losing team of the Todd County v Custer game at 5pm MT.

Cheyenne-Eagle Butte freshman Levi Big Eagle is competing in Wednesday’s Chess Competition. Good Luck Levi!
