NATIONAL FEDERATION HIGH SCHOOL RECORDS BOOK
Mariah Press and sdsportshistory.com efforts to document the high school sports records is reflected in the South Dakota records included in the National High School Records Book published by the National Federation of High School Associations.
Special performances highlighted in the 2012 Edition include Sioux Falls Washington’s Rueben Narlin’s four golf championships during the 1930s. Special basketball performances by the girls’ team from Baltic in 1999, and exceptional shooting displays by Mandy Koupal of Wagner, and Jenny Bridge of Hanson are highlighted. The boys’ section includes the exceptional number of state championships won by the Mitchell Kernels.
In the football section of the National Records Book, Sioux Falls Washington is the national leader with 38 high school football championships (35 mythical, 3 playoff titles). Aberdeen Roncalli’s 11 consecutive shutouts in 2006 is tied for fourth on the all time, national records list.
Only three states, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota play extensive 9-man football seasons. As a result the more thorough and complete South Dakota records permeates the National Records Book lists. Most currently established South Dakota 9-man records are also considered national records. The National Records book is being converted to a digital format, quite similar to the sdsportshistory.com site. The 2012 National Records book is now availablel in the digital format. nfhs.org/content.aspx
