Slideshow | Capital City Classic Day 3
Dimond High School boys basketball came to Juneau looking for redemption. They found it in the fourth quarter of the Capital City Classic championship against Juneau-Douglas High School.
The two schools met Friday for a rematch of last year’s state championship, where JDHS came out on top 38-31. This time, Dimond played the spoiler, taking the Classic crown by holding their opponents scoreless for six minutes in the fourth quarter for a 61-48 win.
“It was an emotional game for us, we really wanted this one bad,” Dimond senior Anthony Parker said. “It was all it was hyped up to be.”
Meanwhile, the Juneau-Douglas High School girls team fell to Marysville Getchell High School on Friday in the finale of the Capital City Classic. Marysville, visiting from Washington, took the Crimson Bears down 33-28.
