The Lady Kings (18-2, 6-0) will host Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears this weekend. It will be the last home games for seniors Eliah Anderson, Courtney Kemble, Alexis Biggerstaff and Charley Edwardson.
The last time the girls varsity played JDHS was Jan. 29-30 when Kayhi won 52-39 and 59-20, respectively. These games this weekend are the last conference games before regions, and will determine if the Lady Kings will have the top seed. One win would seal the top seed.
“Communication is really important,” said junior AJ Dela Cruz when asked about the keys to success for this weekend. “Defense is also important, we just have to stay on top of things.”
Varsity games will be held at 7:15 on both Friday and Saturday at Kayhi. Seniors will be honored Saturday night as part of Pink Night.
Boys look for top seed
The Kayhi boys (17-3, 5-1) will be on the road for two games that will be important for regional and state seeding. Kayhi salvaged a split with Juneau-Douglas when the Crimson Bears visited last month with a 73-57 win after dropping the Friday night game 66-63 in overtime.
