Here are some notes and quotes I couldn’t fit in Wednesday’s paper from Cheyenne East’s signing day.
Qarus Hernandez, football, Dakota Wesleyan
— Hernandez also visited NCAA Div. II Mesa State College in Grand Junction, Colo., and Div III Cal Lutheran. He said he enjoyed his visits to those schools, but got a better offer from Dakota Wesleyan. He also said there would have been too many distractions at Cal Lutheran with it being so close to Los Angeles and the beach.
— “The biggest thing, for me, was finding somewhere I was comfortable. I had to be comfortable with the town, the coaches and the team. Dakota Wesleyan felt like home.”
— Dakota Wesleyan is in Mitchell, S.D., home of the famed corn palace.
Abi Bever, track and cross country, Black Hills State University
— “The thing I liked most about it was it has really good academics. It has a really good elementary education program. The cross country program has a pretty good history of being pretty good. They’re one of the best programs in the Dakota Athletic Conference.”
