Kayhi Debate Travels to Juneau

The Kayhi Drama, Debate, and Forensics team is travelling to Thunder Mountain to compete in their first regional meet of the season on Friday.
Head Coach Dave Mitchell said he is looking forward for the first meet.
“The first meet is always unique in that it’s mostly focused for training and preparing first-year debate students in getting them knowledgeable, and making them comfortable with debate,” said Mitchell. “In terms of first year debate students, we just have a lot of really sharp kids who have joined. They will learn from the seniors and returning students, make some huge strides, and hopefully be able to compete at a high level by the end of the season.”
Co-captain, Frances Barry said she is looking forward to seeing the new members of the team see what DDF is all about.
“The first meet is always exciting. You go with all these first year students who don’t really know anything about DDF, and then they go and actually see what DDF is and what all the events are,” said Barry. “They also see how exhausting it is as well.”
Barry said she sees Kayhi maintaining their good performance from past seasons.
“I think we will continue our path in being one of the best overall teams in Southeast”

Ketchikan High School Hosts College Fair

Ketchikan High School hosted over 50 schools Wednesday at the college fair. The goal was for students to talk with admission counselors and receive more information about the colleges.
Senior Verona Kamberi said that having the college fair every year is very helpful.
“I think it is a great opportunity, especially for seniors that are still looking for colleges,” said Kamberi. “There are so many representatives that are trying to get you to go to their college, all you need to do is just go up to their booth and ask the questions.”
Director Amy Potter from Alaska Pacific University said that having a college fair is a great idea for high schools.
“I think it’s really helpful to get exposure to lots of different types of colleges and universities,” said Potter. “Everyone is unique and finding a good college is important.”

The Kayhi wrestling team will travel to Wrangell to compete in their first meet of the season on Friday. The Tom Sims Invitational Tournament will be double-elimination, and all of Southeast Alaska will participate.
Head coach Rick Collins said he’s excited for all of the potential the freshmen have shown. There will be nine freshmen competing in the first tournament of their high school career.
“There’s some good talent in that group,” said Collins. “Some of them haven’t been wrestling that long, but they’re working hard in practice and I’m really pleased with them.”
Senior Justin Albecker is looking forward to the team’s first tournament of the season.
“The first trip is always the most fun, you get a lot of matches,” said Albecker. “I’m going 145, I feel it’ll be a good weight. There’s a lot of kids in 145, there always is, but I don’t have to cut any weight so that’s good.”
Collins said that this tournament will be a good opportunity to see where the team is talent-wise, and will set a good tone for how the rest of the season should unfold.
