Gering's Huffman headed to Sioux Falls

Gering High School's Rachel Huffman is hopeful of two more track meets for the Bulldogs, then she is headed to the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota. She signed a track and cross country offer from the NCAA Division II school Thursday.

"I like the school," she said at the signing. "The coaches were welcoming. I knew I wanted to go there and they kind of sealed the deal."

Huffman said the coaches told her she would run the longer distances in track and possibly the steeplechase. "I don't know if they were kidding about that," she said. "But I would really like to try it. It sounds like fun."

Huffman said she will major in psychology at Sioux Falls.
