Just two days after getting word that their three previous victories would be wiped away due to the use of an ineligible player, the Chugiak Mustangs played their best game of the season in a 34-32 victory over West at Anchorage Football Stadium.
"I've never been prouder of a group of kids," Chugiak coach Duncan Shackelford said after his team improved to 1-6 overall and 1-5 in the Cook Inlet Conference.
The Chugiak High gymnastics team is seeking anyone who has been affected by breast cancer for a group photo to be taken on Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the school’s auxiliary gym. Coach Wendy Wiltfong is asking everyone to show up wearing pink for the photo, which will also include members of the Chugiak gymnastics team. Wiltfong is taking the picture to help promote this year’s annual “Think Pink” meet, which will be held Oct. 14 to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
Kevin Fullmer is returning to the sidelines at Chugiak High School.
Chugiak principal Sam Spinella confirmed on Tuesday that Fullmer, a social studies teacher at the school who coached the boys basketball team from 1996 to 2009, has been chosen to once again fill that position.
“He brings experience in coaching, he’s worked with the kids and he’s got a good reputation,” Spinella said on Tuesday.
Fullmer takes over for Orin Wear, a Mat-Su math teacher who coached the team for two years before stepping down after last season. Wear went 21-23 at Chugiak.
