It’s crunch time.
Kayhi (12-8) will play Mt. Edgecumbe (4-10) this weekend to secure the number one seed in the region.
Junior Kristian Pihl said that the Kings cannot overlook the Braves.
“We can’t underestimate them,” said Pihl. “They are only 3a, but they still have a strong team. We can try some of our strategies, but we need to keep it locked in on defense.”
Key to the game:
Focus, this weekends games don’t count toward seeding in the region tournament or state tournament. Kayhi can still use these games to clean up any bad habits, though, like their trend of losing the first game of all their away trips.
Regions is also being held at Edgecumbe this year, and playing on their court can give Kayhi an advantage over Juneau Douglas and Thunder Mountain.
Senior Cody Kemble explains the advantage and importance of these games. “First of all we need to end the streak, it’s about time we win the first game on an away trip,” Kemble said. “This isn’t just a normal game though we get to play on the same court as regions and we get to practice some of our new strategies we’ll use against Thunder Mountain and JD at regions.”
