The Kayhi Lady Kings play this weekend in the annual Region V tournament hosted by Ketchikan High School. Kayhi will play the opening game of the tournament against Juneau-Douglas.
The seniors on the Lady Kings Volleyball team include Jadyn Lewis, Megan Cornwall, Lezille Sagrado, and the manager Torie Skillings. For the seniors, these are the last games for them on their home court. Coach Beth Sandefur said that she hopes the team will show their skills without focusing on the outcome of each game in the Region V tourney.
“It is very exciting. Our conference is so small that we don’t get to have many home games,’ said Sandefur. “I’m glad that the team gets one more chance to play in front of friends and family. We have very dedicated girls on our team, and they have maintained a strong work ethic and positive attitude throughout the season.”
Sandefur is happy with how the girls performed this season, and is looking forward for what is to come this weekend.
“I’ve been so proud of my players for their growth and their strength of character,” said Sandefur. “My hope for the Region tournament is that we all view it as an opportunity to show the team’s talent and skills without worrying about the final scores or being scared of the competition in front of a home crowd. The team worked hard and deserves to have a fun and positive close to this season.”
