The 11th annual BHSU Swarm Days Disc Golf Tournament was held during homecoming week.  The tournament, which took place at the BHSU campus disc golf course, had its largest turnout since its inception.
The 11th Annual Black Hills State University Disc Golf Tournament had a record number of 41 participants.  The event was held at the BHSU campus disc golf course, splitting players into student and community divisions, both with a par of 54.

According to Don Altmyer, BHSU associate professor and tournament coordinator, tournament results show how competitive the two divisions have become.  Of 22 competitors in the student division, first place went to Brice Johnson, senior from Sheridan, Wyo., with a score of 46.  Johnson beat second-place Kevin Schwan, sophomore mass communications major from Aberdeen, by one shot.  Third place was Kyle Grauman, junior business administration major from Rapid City, scoring 48.

The community division had 19 competitors.  John Anderson of Rapid City placed first with 10 under par.  Anderson was runner-up in the advanced division of the Professional Disc Golf Association Amateur Championships in Milwaukee, Wisc.  Ryan Smith and Aaron Nelson, both from Spearfish, placed second and third respectively. 

Winners received prizes donated by the BHSU Swarm Days Committee.

The next BHSU campus disc golf tournament is the Eighth Annual Spring Fling, which will be held Friday, May 2, 2008.
