Missing the state tournament last year has Chugiak High’s girls basketball team more motivated for this season. But it won’t be easy getting there this year.
From the championships to the controversies, local athletes made plenty of headlines in 2011. Here’s how it all went down:
New Eagle River football field general Jason Brewer plans to bring a no-nonsense coaching style, enthusiasm and plenty of experience to the job when he takes over in the fall.
Chugiak head coach Kevin Fullmer isn’t too concerned with his team’s play in 2011. It’s 2012 that counts.
Alaska Nordic Racing’s Sarissa Lammers, a sophomore at Chugiak High School, won the J2 girls 5-kilometer classic race during the Besh Cup No. 2 races on her home course at the Beach Lake trails on Sunday, Dec. 18.
Rod Wild has some tough decisions to make.
First tournament. First trophy.
Eagle River High hockey notched its first Cook Inlet Conference win of the season with a 7-4 victory over Bartlett on Dec. 15 at the McDonald Center.
