Congratulations to Emily Mikkelsen and Michael Lusk for being chosen as PACA- Athletes of the Week!
Emily has been a consistent contributor all season and though she has always made team success her priority, her 17 points against Yankton moved her past Katie Lingle on the Career Scoring List to put her at 7th all-time.
Michael won the Yankton Invitational over the past weekend. Michael opened with a first round bye then pinned teammate Lee Snyder in the quarterfinals, before winning 5-0 over Jackson (Douglas) in the semifinals. The championship match pitted Lusk against #2 ranked Hage (Vermillion) who he defeated last week 5-3 to retain his #1 ranking. Lusk extended the gap this week with a 5-2 victory to win his first Yankton Invitational title. Michael is currently unbeaten by any South Dakota competition.
