Boys Soccer
The Kayhi boys soccer team is traveling to Juneau to play the Juneau Douglas Crimson Bears this weekend. JD won the last games against Kayhi April 22 (3-0) and 23 (1-0).
These next games will determine which team will travel to the state tournament. Kayhi has to make up the goal difference between JD to secure a spot to state. Kayhi has four chances to make up the 15 goal difference, with Kayhi being plus 2 and Juneau Douglas being plus 17 currently.
Senior Kenny Johnson thinks that the key to beating JD is just playing hard and scoring goals.
“We’re going to have to score a lot of goals and play very offensively. We’ve been working hard all season, but this is going to come down to just digging deep and playing harder than them.”

Girls Soccer
 The Kayhi Lady Kings soccer team (3-5-1) are playing the Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears at home this weekend.  The Lady Kings lost both games to Juneau earlier in the season and are 2-3-1 overall in conference play. The Lady Kings play the Crimson Bears at 7 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Softball
The Kayhi Lady Kings (5-8, 4-4) are traveling to Juneau this weekend to play against Thunder Mountain. The Lady Kings and Falcons are combining for just over 13 runs per game in their three meetings this year and Kayhi won the first two. The Lady Kings are 2-1 against Thunder Mountain Kayhi travels Thursday and will be playing at 4 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Track
Kayhi track is hosting a home meet this weekend with Petersburg and Thorne Bay.  Kayhi recently met these teams in Juneau for the Juneau Invitational, where they had four first places finishes.
“It is sad,” senior Bernadette Franulovich said. “I had a great four  years with the track team. Everything has been fun and running in my last meet at home is a sense of pride.”
This track meet is different. It is a local meet, where middle school athletes will be able to compete with the Kayhi track team. Also, it is a community team, so coaches and other kids will be able to run, jump, or throw.
