The college sports season officially kicks off tonight in Brookings and Vermillion. That's where the SDSU and USD soccer teams will be playing their first matches of the season.
The Jacks open their season with Creighton at Fishback Park. After a tough 2012, State returned to form last year and finished second in the Summit at 6-1 and went 11-5-2 overall.
That was despite season ending injuries to their goalie and several forwards. Now the Jacks are healthy and pushing each other.
The USD soccer team is opening up their season against Northern State. The Coyotes had a four win improvement last year, and with nine starters back are aiming for a berth in the conference tournament.
