Murdo Gym To Bear Thune Family Name

January 11, 2013, 3:13 PM

MURDO, SD -

A Murdo gym now bears the name of South Dakota Sen. John Thune's father.

The Jones County School District's auditorium was unveiled as the Harold Thune Arena during the Thursday night kickoff of the county's Invitational Tournament.

The elder Thune was a longtime teacher, coach and athletic director at Murdo High School.

The floor at the gym is being named for Jerald Applebee, who, like Harold Thune, taught and coached at Murdo. Former superintendent Maurice Haugland is also being honored.

The senior Thune launched the tourney in the late 1960s. This marks its 45th year.

Sen. Thune played as a high schooler in the tournament four times. He calls the auditorium's naming a "great honor."
