Basketball

Midland, despite its small size, was a yearly powerhouse on the basketball court in the area. The Vikings were always one of the lowest enrollment High Schools in the state, but always drew large crowds with the exciting play on the court.

The style of basketball at Midland was extremely fun to watch. The up-tempo, athletic, and high scoring games brought fans from many miles. The Vikings have made several state tournaments and have played in State Championship games. With the overall success, Midland never did bring home a state championship trophy.

Notable High School Athletes: Lloyd Reiman, Richard Doud, Kirby Schofield, Jim Petoske, Doug Fosheim, Allen Evans, Jeff Jones, Pat Jones, Wade Nelson, Steve Reiman, Mark Reiman, Brad Hand, Justin Koehler, Kory Petoske, Kevin Petoske,Jesse Block and Adam Nemec.

Midland Tumblers

The Midland Tumblers were known throughout the state as one of the best half-time entertainment performers in South Dakota. Choreographed performances with students jumping and flipping off trampolines were very skilled and dangerous. The tumblers were a traveling show that performed at many state basketball tournaments.
