Ketchikan will get its first glimpse of the defending state champs and six-time region champs on Saturday at Meet the Kings.
Senior captain Kristian Pihl is reminiscing as his last Meet the Kings approaches.
“A lot of different emotions go through my head, a lot of memories,” said Pihl.
Freshman Lindsay Byron is excited and anxious to play at her first Meet the Kings.
“I’m nervous. Especially being on Varsity as a freshman, it’s a lot of pressure for us three freshman,” said Byron. “I’m very excited though, it’s going to be fun with my girls by my side.”
There will also be a filipino dinner fundraiser for the boys basketball team during Meet the Kings. Tickets are on sale for 15$ and there are limited quantity at the door.
Pihl said that Meet the Kings is one of the teams biggest fundraiser due to the fact that the community is willing to donate so much money to the team.
“Meet the Kings has turned into one of our big fundraisers because of how our community supports us and wants to give us money,” said Pihl. “There’s no other place that has what we have, we are so fortunate.”
Both the boy’s and girl’s Varsity and JV basketball teams will be playing as well as a performance from the K-HighLites, Kayhi Cheer, the SMS Knightlites and Studio Max Dancers.
