Helping to defray funeral costs for Dupree student

I think the state of South Dakota recoiled in shock and sadness yesterday when the news that Dupree freshman, Vernon Mexican Peterson passed away during basketball practice on Monday evening in Dupree.

This fundraiser is to help raise money to defray some of the costs associated with this unexpected tragedy.

We at Sacred Hoops, and the entire South Dakota basketball family send our condolences to the family and the community of Dupree itself.

The funds were delivered to the family in early January by Allan Bertram. Bertram is the Director of the Sacred Hoops Basketball Academy that helped raise the funds for this family in their time of need.

The funds will now be withdrawn by Bertram...
