 Nearly 40 former Black Hills State University track and field and cross country runners returned to campus to participate in the 22nd Annual Stadium Sports Grill Alumni Mile.

Nearly 40 former Black Hills State University track and field and cross country runners returned to campus last weekend to participate in the 22nd Annual Stadium Sports Grill Alumni Mile. The weekend-long event, held in conjunction with the Dave Little Invitational, included a Friday night social at the Stadium Sports Grill in downtown Spearfish, on Saturday an after-race luncheon followed in the BHSU Yellow Jacket Hall of Fame Room.

This year the event raised more than $1,600 for the Alumni Mile endowment.  This endowment goes to BHSU track and field, and cross country student athletes. 

Mitch Kraft, environmental physical science major from Wessington Springs, and Becca Ellis, business administration major from Rock Rapids, Iowa, were awarded this year’s Alumni Mile Scholarships.

The Alumni Mile was started in 1993 by former BHSU cross country runner Jim Glazer, Class of ’83. The Alumni Mile endowment was created by Myles Kennedy, a longtime BHSU Yellow Jacket supporter and former president of the Yellow Jacket Foundation.
