CC to Regionals
Spots at the state cross country meet are at stake this weekend at the Region V meet in Juneau.
The Kings’ best chances to qualify for state are freshman Mickey Lapinski and sophomore Morgan Elerding.
Lapinski finished 6th among 4A runners (12th overall) last week and will try to crack the top 10 and qualify for state. Lapinski said he is going to develop a game plan to put himself in the best position to have a strong race.“I’m going to learn the Juneau course to know how to pace myself,” said Lapinski.
Elerding finished 9th among the 4A runners last week and will try to keep her spot there to qualify.
“I need to stay with the three JD girls and hope to out sprint them at the end,” said Elerding. “They’re all 10 seconds within my time.”
Football to Barrow
Kayhi Kings football (4-1) will travel 1,300 miles north to take on the Barrow Whalers (3-3) Saturday in their last away game of the regular season. The Kings are coming off a victory at Homer 48-12, and have averaged 51.6 points this season, while the Whalers have an average of 18.8 points.
Senior Tarrant Sasser said he is excited for this weekend’s trip up to the North slope.
“Our defense has been doing great forcing punts,” said Sasser. “And they have been putting the offense in great positions.”
