The tiny community of Gustavus is known for glaciers, wildlife and weekend getaways. As of Saturday night, they’re now also known for being home to the 2014 Alaska School Activities Association Mixed 6 State Volleyball champions.
“We feel great,” Gustavus coach Rachel Parks said. “It is a huge thing for us, our school and our community.”
Gustavus topped Nikolaevsk 20-25, 25-21, 25-15, 24-26, and 15-12 for the title, the first high school state championship in any sport for the Foxes.
