HEAD COACH’S
COMMMENTS:

(On strength of schedule)

I expect that the toughest teams we will face, will be in our Region, Ketchikan and Thunder Mountain. They are two of the toughest teams in the State. We will be attending the Palmer tournament in early January, then the Dimond Tournament in February. Wasilla and Kenai will be coming down to Juneau.

(On early practices)

My kids show up every day ready to work hard. Really, pleased with the attitudes. I find it really endearing that almost daily a player thanks me.
