In a game that came down to the final seconds, the Dickinson State women's basketball team defeated Montana State University - Northern 55-52 on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at Scott Gym. "Overall I'm very proud of our girls and our effort and getting a win tonight," Dickinson State head coach Liz Lewis said. "It wasn't a smooth, pretty win, but it was a win. We grinded it out against a great Northern team and we have a lot of room still to improve, but the pieces are starting to come together."
Unlike their female counterpart, the Dickinson State men's basketball team had yet to make their 2018-19 home debut. On Tuesday, Nov. 20, the Blue Hawks took to Scott Gym for the first time this year; many for the first time ever. While the crowd and cheerleaders were encouraging, the team fell flat in its home opener, losing to Montana State University - Northern 71-57. "We just came out a little bit sluggish," sophomore guard Travon Hamilton said. "We got to come out faster paced, just talk and communicate, defensively. Overall, it was a pretty good crowd."

ORANGE CITY, Iowa — For 14 years, the Dickinson State football team has been chasing the goal of a playoff win, which they last accomplished in 2004 at home against Montana Tech. The past three seasons, Dickinson State won the North Star Athletic Association, finished ranked in the top-20 and earned a trip to the playoffs. Each time, it looked like the Blue Hawks were well-equipped, but each time, they lost in the first round of the postseason, lengthening the drought. On Saturday, that changed.
The last time the Dickinson State football team played Northwestern College (Iowa), it did not go well. When the teams met on Sept. 9, 2017 in a cross-conference, regular season matchup, the Blue Hawks put up 374 yards of offense, but didn't score a single touchdown. A 28-yard field goal from junior kicker Cody Johnson was all Dickinson State mustered in the 37-3 loss. The No. 15 Blue Hawks will have a lot to improve upon as they take on the No. 5 Red Raiders again, but this time in the first round of the NAIA playoffs on Saturday, Nov. 17 at noon MT.
Following a 7-23 season that brought the Dickinson State volleyball team to the first round of the conference tournament, two Blue Hawks earned postseason awards, as announced by the North Star Athletic Association on Monday, Nov. 12. Junior middle blocker Kadara Marshall was named to the All-Conference first team. She posted 70 blocks for the Blue Hawks as well as 185 kills, accruing a .231 hitting percentage. She also earned 11 aces on the year over 113 sets played.
On Sunday, Nov. 11, the Dickinson State football team gathered at the Biesiot Activities Center to learn its playoff fate. Based on seeding and location, the players and coaches anticipated a trip to Iowa, they just weren't sure if it would be to No. 1 Morningside College in Sioux City, or Northwestern College in Orange City. Shortly before 3:15 p.m., the No. 15 Blue Hawks clapped as they learned they would face the No. 5 Red Raiders of Northwestern on Saturday, Nov. 17.
Ten athletes from the Dickinson State football team were named to the 2018 Dacotah Bank North Star Athletic Association Football All-Conference Teams, as announced by the league offices on Monday. The selections were voted by league coaches. With 12 players named to the teams, the Blue Hawks had the second most selections, behind Valley City State with 15 players. Along with Dakota State's lineman Curt Boeke, Dickinson State senior cornerback Jay Liggins was named the NSAA co-most valuable player on defense. Additionally, four players earned honorable mentions.
