“Overall it went really well,” said coach Rick Collins. “Especially for the beginning of the season.”

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.”

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.

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.”
