In reading the Sunday Empire sports section I could not help but feel my heart swell with pride for our high school athletes. In a world gone mad it is so exciting to see our athletes excel beyond their wildest dream.
The cross country boys taking first and the girls taking third in Palmer, the swim team sweeping their series in Fairbanks, the volleyball team taking a commanding lead in Region V in Ketchikan and, finally, the football team taking the top seed for playoffs in the CIFC in Chugiak.
To the coaches, I want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication; to the community, I want to thank you for all your support to these programs; and finally to the athletes - CONGRATULATIONS!
Juneau can be very proud of our student athletes.
Yes, I believe that there are a number of teams throughout the state that are saying the same thing: WHO? The answer is clear JU-NO!
