Nine of the Kayhi Drama, Debate, and Forensics members placed in the top three spots at the Juneau meet this past weekend.
“I think this was the highest we have scored regarding students’ speeches, drama pieces, and debate for a first meet, “ said coach Dave Mitchell. “I set the bar a little higher than usual, but we just have a very talented group of first year debaters. They learned a lot, had great attitudes and I was just very pleased.”
Arick Mattson, who took first place in overall speaking points was very pleased with the team’s performance as well.
“Kayhi dominated at this meet,“ said Mattson. “They [the first year members] did a lot better than everyone else in their first year. “

“Overall it went really well,” said coach Rick Collins. “Especially for the beginning of the season.”
Five Kayhi wrestlers took first in their weight class, and four took second. The team won the tournament with 210 points, beating the closest team by almost 100 points.
Junior Patrick Rauwolf said the team’s first tournament was a success. “Wrestling up a weight class was nice because I didn’t have to cut weight,” said Rauwolf. “The weekend went well, I got first place, and overall the team did really good.”

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 Lady Kings (0-14, 0-6) lost to the Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears Friday (25-15, 25-9, 25-13) and Saturday night (25-11, 25-8, 25-8). Kayhi senior Lezille Sagrado said they played better this time around against Juneau than they did during Spiketacular.
“On Friday, we definitely played better against them than the first time at the Spiketacular Tournament,” said Sagrado. “We tried the best we could and I feel great about how we played overall. On Saturday, however, things weren’t going as well as expected, but we are definitely competitive with JDHS. We just need to fix our little mistakes.”
