Franulovich is one of six seniors on the swim and dive team this year.
“I’m a little nervous for this meet it’s our last meet for us seniors,” said senior Chance Rhein. “I’m hoping to come out on top but there’s some good freshmen this year for competitions. I just need to go out and do my best.”
Senior carnival will be this Saturday, Oct. 24 from 4 to 8 p.m.. The proceeds from the senior-led carnival will go towards prom in the spring. The largest revenue generator at the carnival will be bingo which will have prizes donated from businesses around Ketchikan.
According to senior advisers, a few things will be changed this year in order to make things easier, the commons and Auxiliary gym will be rearranged in order to make crowds flow more smoothly.
Also, in order to make food purchases easier, only cash will be accepted in order to buy food and drinks. Tickets will cost fifty cents with activities in the main gym costing two tickets and activities in the Aux gym costing one ticket, with the exception of face painting and balloons.
