Lindsey Pettijohn of the Juneau Christian School Girls B team has the ball stripped by Skagway's Kristen Moore on Thursday during their Fast Break/Rebounders tournament game at Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School. The Panthers' Ali Doland, far right, goes for the loose ball as teammate Erica Harris watches from down the court.
Skagway won the game, 15-10.
The middle school basketball tournament features 24 boys and girls teams from three local schools - Juneau Christian, Dzantik'i Heeni and Floyd Dryden - and from schools in Skagway, Haines, Yakutat, Hoonah, Metlakatla and Ketchikan.
The tournament's round robin games continue through today at both Dzantik'i Heeni and Floyd Dryden. Starting Saturday, the format will switch to single elimination. The four brackets' championship games will be held starting at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School gym.
