2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling SEASON PREVIEW

Sophomore Andrew Youngblom was 7-15 as a freshman last season. Youngblom is the 149-pound wrestler in a solid core of middle weights.

Sophomore John Nething II was 8-18 in his freshman season. Nething II looks to improve on this mark as a full-time starter this season.

Despite coming off a 1-13-1 season in 2010-11, South Dakota State enters the 2011-12 with high ambitions and a frame of mind to climb the Western Wrestling Conference standings. The Jackrabbits return 10 letterwinners and six starters from a young squad and head coach Jason Liles anticipates a solid leadership core, as well as an impact from incoming upperclassmen and freshmen. After becoming the all-time wins leader at South Dakota State four seasons ago, Liles enters the 2011-12 season with a record of 144-134-5. Lower Weights: 125-141 “Two of the lighter weight classes will be manned by upperclassmen who will give the Jacks leadership and experience in Aaron Pickrel (125) and Dustin Walraven (141),” said head coach Jason Liles. “Both of them have been close but need to establish themselves on the national scene. At 133 pounds Nick Chavez will get the nod and make his collegiate debut as a starter. We expect him to improve as year goes on through solid competition.” Redshirt junior Pickrel made a splash last season, as Liles expected, by posting a 26-10 season record and finishing in fourth place at 125 pounds at the NCAA West Regional. Redshirt freshman Drew Fleming will also wrestle at 125 pounds this season. Fleming finished with a 7-5 record last season. At 133 pounds, Chavez, a freshman from Redlands, Calif., held a 180-26 record in high school, including CIF team and individual championships. He was a three-time league and CIF place winner and Master’s qualifier in his prep days. At 141 pounds, redshirt junior Walraven, 59-41 on his career, posted a 17-8 record last

season. It was his third straight season with a winning record. Junior Tyler Johnson will compete for time on the mat, along with incoming freshman Bronson Steuber. Johnson posted a 1-14 record last season, including an 0-8 mark in the WWC. Steuber joins the team as a three-time Minnesota state champion from Fairmont. Middle Weights: 149-165 “It is excellent to have all three starters returning at these weights in Andrew Younblom (149), Nick Flynn (157) and John Nething II (165),” said Liles. “It is even better they will be challenged by some redshirt freshman (Cody Pack at 149, Joe Brewster at 157) and possibly a few true freshman (Colby Kloetzer at 149, Dillon Reid at 157/165). In addition, these weights have wrestlers who could contribute if need be.” At 149 pounds, Youngblom, a sophomore, was 7-15 last season. Kevin Caruso and Pack figure to be contenders, as well. Caruso was 4-9 last season, while Pack did not log a decision. Two freshmen round out the 149-pound weight class in Brandon Brian and Kloetzer. Brian comes to the team from Las Vegas, Nev., where he was a two-time state qualifier and state runner-up last year. Kloetzer journeys over from Idaho, where he was a three-time state champion, national runner-up and seven-time All-American. At 157 pounds, Flynn, a senior, posted an 11-17 record and finished in third place at the NCAA West Regional last season. The Jacks return one other wrestler at this weight who will compete for time in Brewster. Brewster, a redshirt freshman, was 15-8. Newcomer Austin Lindsay, a junior from

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling


2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling SEASON PREVIEW Whitman, Mass., will battle for a spot in this stacked weight class. At 165 pounds, Nething II, a sophomore, leads the way. Nething II posted a 8-18 record last season as a freshman. Redshirt freshman Troy Morisette looks to make an impact this season, along with incoming freshman Reid. Reid joins the team from Red Bluff, Calif. Upper Weights: 174-Hwt. “There are two starters returning in these weight classes in Joe Rasmussen (174/184) and Cord Willers (174/184/197),” said Liles. “Expect transfer newcomers Tony Lisek (174/184) and Casey Finnicum (174) to push for starting positions, while newcomer Shea Nolan and redshirt freshman Nick Mart will battle for the 197-pounds spot. Heavyweight will be transfer Joe Skow, who has qualified twice for the NAIA national tournament.” At 174 pounds, Rasmussen, a junior, posted a 2-20 record last season. Redshirt junior Willers was 4-15. Joining them at 174-pounds is Finnicum and Ryan Festag. Finnicum is a junior from Lindwood, Wash., while Festag is a freshman Greco All-American state place winner from Meridian, Idaho. At 184 pounds, Lisek joins SDSU after two years at Jamestown Community College, where he posted a 55-10 overall record and was a two-time national qualifier. Dylan Penka, a freshman, held a 136-16 record in high school and was a state champion last season, the last of four straight top-four individual finishes. At 197 pounds, Mart and Nolan will compete for the spot. Redshirt freshman Mart did not see any action last season.

Senior Nick Flynn returns at 157-pounds after posting an 11-17 record last season. Flynn placed third at the NCAA West Regional last season.

Freshman Nolan joins the team from Rio Rancho, N.M. At heavyweight, Skow, a junior from Jackson, Minn., will battle freshman Cody Carrow. Carrow, from Medina, Ohio., was a four-year letterwinner, two-time conference champion and three-time district qualifier in high school, while posting 111 career wins. “We have more depth and talent in most weights this season than in the past,” Liles said. “It is critical to our success to improve on a daily basis and to stay healthy.”

Head coach Jason Liles became the all-time winningest coach at SDSU two seasons ago. His career record at SDSU stands at 144-134-5.

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling Coaching Staff Jason Liles Head Coach Bowling Green ‘79, Miami (Ohio) ‘82 19th Season

Résumé

• Ranks first on SDSU’s career victories list with a 144-134-5 record in 18 seasons • Led SDSU to nine-straight top-five finishes and 10 top-10 finishes at the NCAA Division II Championships • Enters 2011-12 season with 233-162-6 career dual record • 2000-01 NCAA Division II National Wrestling Coach of the Year

South Dakota State University wrestling coach Jason Liles enters his 19th season for the Jackrabbits, his third since becoming the alltime wins leader at the university. His record currently stands at 144-134-5. Liles overtook the late Warren Williamson, who compiled a 134-74-9 dual record over 16 seasons from 1957-68 and 1970-73. Overall, Liles holds a career record of 233-162-6 over a decorated 27 seasons. Starting with the 2004-05 season, the Jackrabbits competed at the NCAA Division I level. SDSU wrestled as an independent the first two seasons in the D-I ranks, then joined seven other schools in forming the Western Wrestling Conference in time for the 2006-07 season. SDSU completed a fast-tracked transition to Division I prior to the 2006-07 season, making the Jackrabbits eligible for postseason consideration. Under Liles’ guidance, redshirt freshman Ryan Meyer became the first SDSU wrestler in the D-I era to qualify for the national meet following a runner-up effort in the 165-pound weight class at the 2007 West Regional. In 2009, Tyler Sorenson represented the Jacks at the national tournament after a second-place finish at the West Regional.

Sorenson was hampered by injury to start the season but bounced back to a 14-4 record, with all losses to wrestlers at the national meet. In 2010, Sorenson finished first at the West Regional and made a repeat appearance at the national tournament. As a team, the Jackrabbits placed fifth at the 2007 and 2009 West Regional and sixth in 2008 and 2010. Liles led SDSU to a winning dual record nine times, including a streak of eight consecutive winning seasons from 1996-2003. As part of that streak, the Jackrabbits tied a school record with 17 dual victories during the 1997-98 season. SDSU won the National Wrestling Coaches Association National Duals that season and repeated the feat during the 1999-2000 season. In 1993-94, Liles took over the South Dakota State wrestling program and guided the Jackrabbits to a fourth-place finish in the NCAA Division II tournament. That marked the highest national finish for the Jackrabbits in 25 years and was the first time that SDSU had two individual national champions — Chad Lamer at 177 and Justin Blasius at 190 — in the same season.

• 1997-98 and 2000-01 squads finished as NCAA Division II runner-up • Coached 47 All-Americans and 11 national champions at SDSU • Wrestlers have combined to earn NWCA Academics Team recognition 37 times • Coached team to NWCA Division II National Dual titles in 1998 and 2000 • Ranked 13th highest GPA in the nation in 2009 2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling Coaching Staff In each of his first 10 seasons, Liles led the Jackrabbits to a top-10 finish at the NCAA Division II Championships, including nine straight top-five finishes. SDSU placed second at nationals twice (1998, 2001), third once (2001), fourth four times (1994,1996, 1997, 2000) and fifth two times (1995, 1999). He also led SDSU to a North Central Conference team title in 1997 — its first in 17 years. Liles was named Division II Wrestling Coach of the Year during the 2000-01 season, one in which the Jackrabbits posted a 9-5-1 dual record and came within a victory of claiming the first team national championship in school history. By the time SDSU completed its run as a member of the North Central Conference and NCAA Division II at the close of the 200304 season, the SDSU wrestling program had produced 46 All-Americans, 11 national champions and 36 NWCA All-Academic Team selections during Liles’ tenure. Liles came to SDSU in 1993 after a nineyear stay at Montana State University-Northern, in Havre, where he led his squads to NAIA national championships in 1991 and 1992. Liles was inducted into the MSU-Northern Athletic Hall of Fame during the fall of 2003. His teams at MSU-N won NAIA District-12 championships in 1988, 1990, 1991 and 1992. During his career at MSU-N Liles posted a dual record of 89-33, coached six individual national champions (including the Outstanding

Wrestler at the 1990 national tournament), and produced 48 All-Americans. His teams produced eight academic All-Americans, with the team showing a 3.00 cumulative grade point average from 19871993. Prior to joining the staff at MSU-N, Liles was assistant wrestling coach at Miami University in Ohio (1981-84). While serving as an assistant coach at Miami University (Ohio), he worked toward the master’s degree he received in 1982. At Miami, Liles played an integral part in developing three NCAA Division I All-Americans. Miami won the Mid-America Conference title in 1984 and had an alternate to the 1984 USA Olympic Freestyle team. Liles got his start in coaching at the high school level in his native state of Ohio. In two seasons at Arcadia High School, he produced back-to-back Blanchard Valley Conference championships in 1980 and 1981, when his teams combined for a 20-6 dual record. A 1979 graduate of Bowling Green State University in Ohio, Liles ended his career as the winningest wrestler in the university’s history. A four-year starter, he was chosen the team’s most valuable wrestler his last three seasons (1977-79). Liles and his wife Holly reside in Brookings. They have two sons - Walker and Hunter.

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling Frost Arena South Dakota State University hosts home matches in Frost Arena, named after former Jackrabbit coach and athletic director R.B. “Jack” Frost. Frost served as athletic director and professor and head of the physical education department from 1947 until 1960. He compiled an 86-79 mark in seven seasons as Jackrabbit men’s basketball coach from 1948-54. Frost was also an international leader in recreation, health and physical education, serving in 1965 as the United States representative at the Fifth Session of the International Olympic Academy in Greece. Frost Arena, which is part of the Stanley J. Marshall HPER Center, now seats approximately 6,500 fans. The addition of chair-back lower-level seating prior to the 1992-93 season, as well as the addition of chair-back seating in the lower level end zones and new student bleachers in the summer of 2004, eliminated nearly 2,500 seats from the original seating capacity of 9,500. In the fall of 2005, Frost Arena was included with Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in a $3 million Daktronics scoreboard project. The Frost Arena portion includes a four-sided scoreboard with four ProStar® video screens measuring 12 feet by seven feet, two ProAd® displays measuring 60 feet long by four feet high and a new full-color digital ProTable® scorers table, all of which can display real-time statistics. Widely regarded as the finest arena with the best athletics atmosphere in the state, Frost Arena was the site of NCAA Division II Wrestling National Championships in 1973, 1979, 1993 and 2000, as well as a few North Central Conference championship tournaments. In 2010, Frost Arena played host to the NCAA West Regional wrestling tournament. The first event at Frost Arena was held on Feb. 2, 1973, when the Jackrabbit men’s

The 37-year-old arena remains one of the premier athletic venues in the Upper Midwest. basketball team hosted the University of North Dakota. In 1994, the one-millionth fan passed through the Frost Arena turnstiles. Frost Arena also has been the site of six North Central Regional men’s basketball tournaments, the 2003 NCAA Division II North Central Regional women’s basketball tournament, as well as regional and state high school tournaments. Postseason basketball returned to Frost Arena in 2007 as two rounds of the Women’s NIT were played in front of capacity crowds. In addition, Frost Arena is the site of SDSU graduation ceremonies, the annual Wacipi

pow-wow, concerts and numerous other campus events. Bids totaling $3,374,115 were let for the facility following legislative approval of the project, with the bill signed by Gov. Frank Farrar on Feb. 14, 1970. Ground was broken Sept. 22, 1970, with the cornerstone placed by Gov. Richard Kneip on Oct. 2, 1971. Final cost of the building was $3,685,000, with the difference made up by gifts and donated items.

Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center The Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center officially opened in April 2010 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony during the annual spring football game. The 30,000-square foot facility houses an academic center for all SDSU student-athletes, serves as the home of Jackrabbit football with coaches offices, locker room, meeting rooms, a strength and conditioning center and athletic training facilities and provides a dedicated 30

area to showcase the program to recruits and donors. Situated on the north end of CoughlinAlumni Stadium, the Dyhouse Center is the first major athletic building constructed on campus since Frost Area in 1973. In November 2007, South Dakota State officials announced gifts totaling $6 million from the Dykhouse family and T. Denny Sanford to begin construction of a student-athlete

development center on the Brookings campus. The Dykhouse Center is a project of It Starts with STATE: A Campaign for South Dakota State University. It is the largest university fundraising drive in state history, with a working goal of $190 million. The campaign is in response to campus-wide strategic planning that developed a vision for future growth on campus.

Longtime South Dakota State coach Warren Williamson was one of eight people inducted with the inaugural Hall of Fame Class in March 1996. Williamson coached the Jackrabbits for 16 seasons — from 1957-68 and from 1970-73. During his tenure, he compiled a 134-74-9 dual record, and coached 24 College Division All-Americans and two national champions. His teams also won three North Central Conference titles and placed in the top 10 at the College Division national tournament seven times. Williamson also is a member of the Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Fame and South Dakota Hall of Fame.

Former Jackrabbit wrestler Jim Koch, the longtime head wrestling coach at Wisconsin-Parkside, was inducted into the Division II Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2000. A 1969 graduate of SDSU and a Milbank native, Koch earned runner-up honors at the North Central Conference Championships three time and was an NWCA Academic All-American while wrestling under Warren Williamson. After serving as a graduate assistant at SDSU for one season, Koch accepted the head coaching position at Parkside in 1970. At the time of his induction, Koch’s wrestlers had earned All-America honors 88 times with 10 national titles. He also has held numerous leadership positions in wrestling coaches associations and was instrumental in the creation of the Division II Wrestling Hall of Fame.

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling South Dakota State University You Can Go Anywhere From Here With a record enrollment of 12,725 students in the fall of 2011, South Dakota State remains the state’s largest institution of higher learning.

SDSU Early History

Located in Brookings, the Territorial Legislative Assembly authorized SDSU in 1881 to serve as the state’s land grant institution. Territorial Council member John O’Brien Scobey managed to secure Dakota Agricultural College for his city. Although allocations fell short of the actual cost, the school did open in the fall of 1884 because the president, George Lilley, advanced $500 — one-third of his salary — to finish three rooms in the new Central Building. “Old Central” was soon joined by South (1885) and North (1887), forming the nucleus of campus for a decade and a half. During the first year of operation, the college only held preparatory classes. College classes started in 1885 with five teachers, 17 freshman and 61 preparatory students. Growth stayed slow and erratic for many years, but by the turn of the 20th century, 242 students enrolled and by 1990, SDSU enrollment grew to more than 9,000 students.

Colleges Established

SDSU has granted nearly 70,000 degrees since its charter in 1881. The structure of the college became more complex as enrollments increased. The first nine chairs of instruction established in 1884 included agriculture, science, mathematics, English, modern languages, military tactics, veterinary science, practical business, political & domestic economy and music. By 1907, the year the name of the institution changed to South Dakota State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, there were 22 departments on campus. Reorganization into the five divisions that formed the basis for the designation of colleges was completed under President Charles W. Pugsley in 1923. In 1964, when “State College” became South Dakota State University, the school included six colleges. Now, students can earn degrees offered through eight colleges. Students can choose from more than 200 majors, minors and options at SDSU with more than 2,500 different course offerings. Master’s degrees can be earned in more than 30 areas, with doctorates available in eight fields. SDSU also offers degree programs through the South Dakota Public Universities and Research Center in Sioux Falls.The Office of Academic Affairs and Outreach coordinates evening, RDTN, Internet and off-campus courses. The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools accredits SDSU, while numerous departments on campus hold accreditation from various other agencies. SDSU celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2006, a yearlong event that culminated with the 2006 Hobo Day football game. Over those 125 years, SDSU grew from a campus of 80 acres in 1881 to a 271-acre campus with facilities worth more than $220 million. The university owns or leases another 15,000 acres for research throughout the state. The Printing and Journalism Building — now named Anson and Ada May Yeager Hall — underwent a $2.1 million expansion and renovation project. Other recent campus construction projects include a $7 million expansion to Crothers Engineering Hall, the renovation of Solberg Hall and the building of a $9 million performing arts center, which opened in the fall of 2002. A new residence hall (Caldwell Hall) and the University

AGGIE SCHOOL CLOCK TOWER—The clock tower sits in front of the Tompkins Alumni Center on the west side of campus. The alumni center is host to many university and alumni functions throughout the year. The Coughlin Campanile (left) is considered South Dakota State University’s most recognizable landmark. The campanile’s cornerstone was laid on June 10, 1929, by Charles Coughlin and its chimes have called students to classes with its famous Westminster peals ever since.

Student Union expansion and renovation opened in the fall of 2005, and the Enterprise Institute, located on the southwest corner of campus opened in 2004. In 2005, SDSU spent more than $3 million to install new state of the art scoreboards in Frost Arena and at Coughlin Alumni Stadium.

Agricultural Research

The university reaches all corners of the state through the Cooperative Extension Service and the Agricultural Experiment Station, offering service to improve the quality of rural life. SDSU also sponsors the Center for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship; Engineering Experiment Station, Office of Remote Sensing; Water Resources Institute; Engineering and Environmental Research Center; Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory; and Northern Grain Insect Research Laboratory. These units help strengthen the university’s growing commitment to research and support of state and local economic development efforts. The Northern Great Plains Biostress Laboratory, dedicated in 1993, houses scientists who focus on research aimed at developing new technologies to protect crops and livestock. SDSU is also one of just five universities to serve as a

regional center for the Sun Grant Initiative, which is a concept to solve America’s energy needs and revitalize rural communities with Land-Grant university research, education and Extension programs on renewable energy and bio-based non-food industries. The Harding Distinguished Lecture Series, the F.O. Butler Lectures, the Lusk Lecture and the Amdahl, Schultz-Werth and Griffiths endowments all supplement classroom instruction. Students can also choose from more than 100 clubs and organizations on campus.

Museums & Attractions

The educational opportunities do not end in the classroom or laboratory, as South Dakota State University houses several facilities, including museums and gardens. Dedicated in 1970, and expanded in 2000, the South Dakota Federation of Women’s Club first envisioned the South Dakota Art Museum in 1949. The museum’s collections include early Sioux Indian tribal art, the famed Harvey Dunn paintings of pioneer life and the exclusive Vera Way Marghab linens. The State Agricultural Heritage Museum transformed the former Stock Judging Pavilion into a home for exhibits that record and preserve the agrarian heritage of South Dakota. The 70-acre McCrory Gardens and South Dakota Arboretum, located south and east of campus, provide a beautiful setting for area residents and tourists to enjoy a stroll through the radiant colors and fragrances of one of the top 10 small ornamental gardens in the nation. It is also recognized as an All-American Display Garden, one of only 13 in the nation. In 1993 McCrory Gardens was designated an All-American Judging Garden to conduct research on annual flowers. Since 1985, private contributions made many new gardens possible including the Rose, Rock, Centennial Prairie, Iris, True Lily, Mum, Native Prairie Collection, Oak Tree Memorial Garden, AllRed Specialty Garden, Peony Garden, Shrub Rose Collection, and Children’s Maze. In August 1994, McCrory Gardens dedicated

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES—SDSU has the highest involvement of undergraduates in research of any South Dakota public university. The university is large enough to offer the opportunities, yet small enough to foster student-faculty learning opportunities.

the Mickelson Grove Memorial in honor of former governor and Brookings resident George S. Mickelson. In 1982, they dedicated the area north of the formal garden to the planting and testing of ornamental trees and shrubs. The 45-acre site was designated the South Dakota State Arboretum in 1988. The arboretum’s purpose is to test woody plants needed to protect agricultural fields and livestock from the region’s harsh environment, to provide hardy trees to shade our towns and cities, and to test ornamental shrubs for both durability and beauty. SDSU Horticulture, Forestry, Landscape and Parks Department manage the arboretum and gardens. McCrory Gardens continues to develop more gardens, tree and shrub collections.

COOLIDGE-SYLVAN THEATRE—The Sylvan Theatre, located on the southwest corner of campus, is an outdoor amphitheater that has been the site of concerts, graduations and inaugurations of university presidents since its dedication by President Calvin Coolidge in September 1927.

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling

South Dakota State’s most recognizable landmark may be the 165-foot Coughlin Campanile, the state’s largest chimes tower. A climb of 179 steps leads to a panoramic view of the city. 1909 Engineering graduate Charles Coughlin, who later went on to become head of the Briggs & Stratton Corporation, donated the statuesque structure on the west end of campus at a cost of $65,000. Coughlin laid the campanile’s cornerstone on June 10, 1929. Since then, its chimes call students to classes with the famous Westminster peals. An alumni-sponsored project to restore the campanile was completed in the summer of 2001. Named after a former SDSU President, The Hilton M. Briggs Library, the state’s largest, opened in 1977 and joined South Dakota’s statewide automated library network in 1988.Through the library, users can access holdings from all 10 of the state’s libraries, including official documents and more than 1 million other holdings at Briggs. Adjacent to the campanile, Coolidge-Sylvan Theatre provides a restful, green haven for students since its dedication by President Calvin Coolidge in September 1927. Over the years the outdoor amphitheater hosted concerts, graduations and inaugurations for university presidents. Woodbine Cottage, the home of the university president, is a charming example of Queen Anne architecture. Built in 1887 by South Dakota Agricultural College’s second president, Dr. Lewis McLouth, the home is crowned by multiple rooflines. The house also served as a women’s dormitory, music hall and infirmary.

SOUTH DAKOTA ART MUSEUM—The museum is home to several collections, including early Sioux Indian tribal art, the famed Harvey Dunn paintings of pioneer life, and the exclusive Vera Way Marghab linens. The South Dakota Art Museum also has a variety of other exhibits throughout the year.

2011-2012 South Dakota State Wrestling South Dakota State University You Can Go Anywhere From Here The Jackrabbits

Two theories exist as to how and why SDSU’s athletic teams became known as the “Jackrabbits”. Most believe that the name “Jackrabbits” came from a story and cartoon sketch that appeared in a Minneapolis newspaper following a 1905 football game between the University of Minnesota and South Dakota State College. Many believe that a reporter for the newspaper, knowing of the preponderance of jackrabbits in the Brookings area, wrote that the SDSC team was as quick as jackrabbits. Many people believe that the school adopted the Jackrabbits as its official nickname from that beginning. The other theory about the origin of the nickname came in The Jackrabbit, SDSU’s yearbook. A poem in the 1907 yearbook puts forth the idea that the yearbook is called The Jackrabbit because a group of juniors wished to immortalize themselves by changing the name of the yearbook. Athletic teams followed suit, adopting the nickname. Prior to the adoption of the Jackrabbit nickname, fans knew the school athletic teams as the Barn Yard Cadets as SDSU was known as South Dakota State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in 1907. The Jackrabbit can run at speeds of 30-to-35 miles per hour, with bursts up to 45, making it the second fastest animal in North America, second only to the pronghorn antelope, which can run at speeds up to 60 miles per hour. Jackrabbits are, properly speaking, not rabbits but hares, with longer feet and longer ears than rabbits. Most hares live in open country, whereas rabbits - like cottontails - live in brushy habitats. Jackrabbits can grow up to two feet long, weigh froms six to nine pounds, with ears up to eight inches long. Hares are vegetarians, eating tender herbs in summer, and woody twigs and bark in the winter.

MEMORIAL PARK—Memorial Park, located between DuPuy Military Hall and Briggs Library in the center of campus, honors SDSU students who have served in the armed forces, including Congressional Medal of Honor recipients Capt. Willibald Bianchi and Col. Leo Thorsness.The park was dedicated in the fall of 2000.

Brookings, South Dakota

Named after W.W. Brookings, who came to the area in 1857. That winter, his legs froze badly enough to force doctors to amputate them. Undaunted, Brookings stayed and eventually became president of the territorial council and a judge in the state supreme court. In honor of his support of railroad construction, and possibly because of his stalwart nature, South Dakota’s first locomotive was named the “Judge Brookings.” Situated at the intersection of U.S. Highway 14 and Interstate 29, about 20 miles west of the Minnesota border and 50 miles north of Sioux Falls, the Brookings community of about 18,500 people continues to grow. The community also houses several recognizable companies including Rainbow Play Systems, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing (3M medical products), Larson Manufacturing (doors and windows), and Daktronics, a leading manufacturer of scoreboards and display systems.

HILTON M. BRIGGS LIBRARY—Shown above is the entrance to South Dakota’s largest library, which was opened in 1977 and later joined the state’s automated library network in 1988.
