USD Fans Get Together To Watch Coyotes Play

USD Fans Get Together To Watch Coyotes Play

Coyote fans didn't have to travel to Ames to cheer on their team.

It was a sea of red at Czeckers in downtown Yankton. While the final score wasn't in their favor, fans of USD will always remember the first time the Coyotes played on the big stage.

The cheers were just as loud in Yankton, even though they were hundreds of miles away from the action in Ames. With the Coyotes playing against one of the best teams in the country, fans were trying to take it the whole experience.

"It's honestly awesome. We never expected to beat SDSU and them winning it the past five years. It's finally time for USD to get on the mark and be known internationally," USD Student Logan Anderson said.

"I knew that we'd get to this point eventually. I didn't think it would be quite this soon, second eligibility but you never know," USD Fan Robb Nielson said.

All eyes were glued to the television too see how the Yotes stacked up. With every high and low of the game, some fans enjoyed the ride while watching next to others wearing red.

"It's exciting to be with a bunch of friends, people that I went to school with and you get that comradery with people you don't really know but they all went to USD so you have that certain bond," USD Fan Josh Ephcooch said.

Fans might not have left home happy after the final buzzer sounded, but the first time in the NCAA tournament will never be forgotten by the USD players or their fans.

"National recognition for us a little bit. Playing Stanford never hurts. It's awesome it's in Ames so some of our fans could make it down there," Nielson said.

The event in Yankton was put on by the Howling Pack, a group that supports and promotes all Coyotes Athletic events.
