Landon Peterson signed his scholarship to run track at division one Idaho.
Peterson is a state champ hurdler.

"I just like the family aspect out there, the coaches, the environment. Honestly, it was really beautiful out there. It really reminded me of home. It was a small-town feel, like 20,000 people I think. I really didn't want to be overwhelmed with a ginormous population. I just think when I met them and giving me a Zoom tour of the campus it was really cool," Peterson said.
Olivia Gamoke signed her letter to play basketball at the University of Sioux Falls.
Gamoke averaged 11 points a game last season and led the Hilltoppers in made three-pointers.

"The atmosphere there was amazing. The basketball program has always been really successful. I think it's just a really good place to be. It'a perfect distance from home so I can kind of be on my own but also know my family will be there when I need them," Gamoke said.
Gavin McGrath is headed to division one North Dakota on scholarship.
McGrath was part of a squad that won the MVC title last season while averaging 6 points and 6 rebounds a game.

"The coaches are really great. I think they can do a lot for me. I think they want to, which is a big deal. I'm ready to get better and I think they can get me there," McGrath said.
