The Kings went 1-1 on the road for the weekend, against their rival the Juneau-Douglas Bears. The Kings fell Friday night 75-67, but came back strong on Saturday winning 65-32.
Senior Gavin Salazar was disappointed in Friday’s game, but overall happy with how the weekend ended.
“I think we always knew we were the better team coming into the first game. We played down to their level and didn’t execute like we can and the score showed that,” said Salazar. “We came into Saturday’s game with a better mindset and I think we showed everyone who the better team was.”
The Kings travel up to Anchorage on Tuesday to compete in the South High School tournament as well as play East High Thunderbirds.
The Lady Kings went 2-0 against the Mt. Edgecumbe Lady Braves over the weekend. They won 55-31 on Friday and 64-36 on Saturday. Their record is now 4-4 after three straight wins.
Senior Ashley Huffine was pleased overall with how the weekend went.
“Both nights started off really slow but we were able to get our momentum and play as a team,” said Huffine.
Kayhi lost a huge piece to their offense midway through Friday’s game in senior Payton Simmons. Simmons suffered a knee injury and there is uncertainty on whether or not she will play again this year.
“We know what we need to work on and were going to have to learn how to fill a big spot,” said Huffine.
Kayhi plays Juneau-Douglas this weekend at home.
