The Lady Kings (8-2) are in Juneau to play the Juneau Douglas (10-1) this weekend.
Last year Kayhi was just 1-3 in the regular season against the Lady Bears but won both Region contests to claim their sixth straight Region Championship. Since 2017 the Lady Kings are 4-9 in the regular season but 6-1 in the Region Tournament and have beaten JD the last six Region tournament games.
Senior captain Nadire Zhuta feels that she and the team are ready to play this weekend especially with many practice days without games.
“I’m excited, we haven’t had games in two weeks and we are craving to play games after two straight weeks of practice,” said Zhuta.
Senior Kendyl Carson is back in Juneau after two seasons playing south. Carson is starting off the season hot with averaging 23 points per game with a total of 92 points in a four-game stretch.
The Lady Bears are starting their season 10-1 with the only loss to No.1 Colony Lady Knights.
Lady Bears have wins over West Valley, East Anchorage, and two wins over Bartlett.
Both Kayhi and JD have beat Eagle River this season. Lady Bears won by 24 (55-31) and the Lady Kings by 13 (47-34).
