Following Pierre girls basketball’s 51-37 win over Harrisburg in the SDHSAA Class AA Girls State Basketball Tournament Semifinals on Friday at the Sanford Pentagon, the Governors are one step closer to winning their first state title in 32 years.

“It feels awesome, it feels a little surreal. I’m sure I’ll wake up tomorrow in a cold sweat,” Govs head coach Kirk Beebout said after Friday’s win. “No, we’re excited for the opportunity. The girls deserve it.”
