In their first year as a Competition team, the Eagle River Glacier Hockey Association’s Alaska Glacier Bears won the U16 Tier II state title. Now, the Bears are heading to the national tournament in Green Bay, Wis., on March 28 through April 1 to see how they stack up against the Lower 48.
Though Eagle River High is fielding just one girls soccer team, it has a high caliber of players, second-year head coach Lauren Mason said.
First-year head soccer coach Max Solodkii couldn’t ask for a better team to start his career at ERHS.
With nine seniors, Chugiak High’s boys soccer team won’t be lacking experience for the 2012 campaign.

Noorvik defeated Birchwood Christian School 58-38 in the boys Class 2A state basketball semifinals Tuesday at Sullivan Arena. The Warriors will take on Yakutat at 10:40 a.m. Wednesday in the third-place game.
