A Rapid City high graduate got to root for his favorite NBA team while winning some cash on a national stage.
Chris Dietrich was one of three contestants to appear on Wheel of Fortune Thursday night for NBA Week. The Denver Nuggets fan graduated from Stevens High School but now lives in Englewood, Colorado. The 27-year-old rocket scientist is a mechanical engineer, who is working on sending people to mars.
Dietrich came in second place taking home $15,100 in cash and prizes.
