The Kayhi Track and Field boys returned from Sitka last weekend with a second place overall score. Due to Prom festivities at home, the team was missing over half of their members for this meet. This pushed the underclassmen boys to pull their weight in multiple events, coming up just short of a win. Junior Brendan Wong led the team as he placed in two events. He secured first place in shotput and second place in discus. Junior Grant Alphege Dulay had the only other first place for the entire team, earning it in long jump. On the girls side, only two Kayhi members placed in any events–both being freshmen. Rachel Knight placed second in the 800m and Morgan Elerding placed third in the 3200m. The entire team will be putting on their annual Zombie Run tonight at Ward Lake. The fundraiser sign-ups will start at 5:00 p.m.

Baseball wins one out of three
Kayhi went 1-2 against the Wolves over the weekend. The Kings defeated the Wolves 4-3 Thursday night in Sitka. Senior Tug Olson closed the game striking out 3 in the bottom of the 7th inning.
The bats quieted down for the Kings in the double-header Friday. The Kings fell 7-2 and 4-3. Senior Kody Malouf went 6 for 7 with a walk over the weekend.
“I think we did well as a team,”said Malouf. “There were definitely some mistakes that cost us those two games but overall I think there were a lot more positives than negatives. I thought I played well but I’m pretty sure I just got lucky as far as my hitting.”

Kayhi (3-5) won both games this past weekend against the Thunder Mountain Falcons (0-6) in Juneau. They won the first game on Thursday night 3-0 with senior Izaak Jensen scoring two goals. Friday’s game was a little bit closer with the score being 2-1. The game winning goal was scored by junior Mark Jasper.
Junior captain Brayden Linne was very happy about how the team played this weekend.
“It was by far the best we have played this year as a team,” said Linne. “It was really good for us to gain some confidence going forward in the season.”
The Kayhi Lady Kings finished the weekend a pair of conference losses (12-4,14-2) and non-conference win (14-2) against the Sitka Wolves.
Friday’s 12-4 loss was doomed by errors and failure to bring runners home. Kayhi racked up 11 errors throughout the game and scored there only runs in the last inning. Junior Maya Parker was disappointed in the teams loss on Friday,
“It’s tough losing like that, Sitka put the ball in play a ton and we didn’t make the plays we should have,” Parker said. “Sitka’s a good team, but really we just beat ourselves that game.”
Saturdays conference game went a lot like how Friday’s game did. Kayloni Bermudez started the game on the mound and was relieved by Kiara Hodges in the middle of the 4th inning. Sitka took advantage of a few Kayhi errors and made the score 12-1 by the end of the 4th and the mercy rule ended the game.
Senior Molly Murdock said that Sitka’s pitching made it hard for any real run production to occur.
“They pitched us really well and had solid pitchers with good command,” Murdock said. “They quited our bats down tremendously compared to the night before.”
