Kayhi football (1-2) won their first game 34-6 last Saturday against Seward Highschool (0-3). Despite not having junior quarterback Patrick Garcia, the Kings lead the whole game. Four different Kings scored touchdowns- Brendan Roof (2 rushing), Aj Malouf (rushing), Carter Thomas (receiving), and Kylar Charles (pick 6). Roof said that the team played amazingly this weekend despite having the set back.
“I was proud of everyone,” Roof said. “Despite Patrick being out of the game everyone played their hardest. D-line wasn’t letting anyone passed them and O-Line was protecting AJ and I in the back field.”
The Kings play the Nikisi Bulldogs this Friday at Esther Shea field.
Kayhi swim/dive traveled to Sitka last Thursday to participate in their first meet of the season. The boys took first overall, and the girls team took third. Senior Captain Tyler Merle said that this weekend was great despite having coaching setbacks earlier this season.
“Everyone swam amazingly, “Merle said.” We’ve had to adapt to a new coach this past week which has been a bit challenging, but after this weekend’s performance by everyone I think we’re cut out for a great season.”
The Lady Kings volleyball team (0-2) got swept by Juneau Douglas (2-0) at home over the weekend. On Friday, Kayhi fell (8-25, 7-25, 14-25) but Kayhi seemed to show improvement Saturday night (15-25, 12-20, 20-25). Senior Erika Rauwolf said that is was a good weekend of games and that they have a lot more to improve on.
“I thought we could have done a lot better, we have a lot to improve on, one thing being the communication. It would have been nice to secure a win but it’s all good.” Rauwolf said. “The Saturday night games were much better than the Friday night ones. Kevin made some adjustments as well as us players talking more and being on the same page I’m excited to go to Juneau this upcoming weekend and get more games in”
The Lady Kings JV team also fell to Juneau 0-3 Friday night and 2-3 Saturday night.
Kayhi girls and boys cross country placed first in petersburg last weekend. Sophomore Mickey Lapinski placed first for Kayhi boys and 5th overall running a 17:42.62 in the 5k.
