The Tornadoes will play a modified 11-game schedule, but are hoping that other games become available. “We’re still hoping some openings come up, maybe in a classic or tournament,” Edberg said. Despite not playing a 20-game schedule, Centerville — like every team in South Dakota basketball — will still be eligible for the Region 5B Tournament (and potentially, state). However, teams that don’t play a minimum of 14 regular season games are seeded last in their region, according to the SDHSAA. Still, even having the chance to play in the postseason is exciting for Centerville, Tornberg said. “Any time you have an opportunity for postseason play, I think it motivates you and gives you something to shoot for,” he said. “I think it brings an excitement to your program.” Having girls’ basketball back in the Centerville scene has also brought a new level of excitement within the school walls, Edberg added. “The atmosphere in the school has been a little more exciting,” he said. “There’s more sports pride. “Last year we had that Tornado pride, but it was different.” While other small schools in similar situations (declining enrollment, etc.) may have been forced to seek a co-op with another surrounding town, Centerville has avoided such worries. “It goes both ways,” Tornberg said. “You need the community support, but the kids need to give the community something to support.” And the Tornadoes are happy to be back on the court, to give their friends and family a varsity team to support. “They have a great sense of pride to be here, and our hope is that we can continue to do that alone,” Tornberg said. “School pride in a small town is something so valuable.” Follow @jhoeck on Twitter SOUTH DAKOTA GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Alcester-Hudson COACH: Shannon Hames ASSISTANTS: Matt Storo VITALS: Class B, Region 5 LAST SEASON: The Cubs (9-12) saw their season end on a buzzer-beating threepointer in the first round of the district tournament.
