The Sitka Wolves have won the Southeast region 3A basketball tournament.
The Wolves decisively beat the Mt. Edgecumbe Braves Saturday afternoon, 62 to 45.
The game was a rematch between these same two teams from the previous afternoon. In Friday’s contest, Mt. Edgecumbe trailed Sitka by 14 points going into the fourth quarter, but rallied, tied the game with less than a minute to play, and eventually won by 5.
On Saturday, however, Sitka was a different team. Mt. Edgecumbe athletic director Andrew Friske, calling the game on the Juneau-Douglas High School web stream, summed up the Wolves’ play like this:
“Sitka has had a solid game. They’ve had a couple of turnovers, but overall they’ve controlled the tempo of this game, they’ve owned the glass, and had a good game plan coming in here to get the ball inside. Minimal 3-point shots. Pound it inside with AJ (Inman) and Brian (Way). A good game plan by the Sitka Wolves so far.”
Sitka will represent the Southeast region in state tournament action beginning later this week in Anchorage. The challenge for Sitka — and all teams in the 3A classification — will be overcoming Monroe Catholic, a perennial powerhouse which has dominated even some 4A schools in the Anchorage area this season.
The Mt. Edgecumbe Lady Braves defeated Sitka on Friday to capture the regional 3A crown in girls basketball. The score was 49 – 42.
Sitka was the defending Region V champion, and was expected to repeat this season. However a broken wrist kept point guard Sid Riggs sidelined until this tournament.
Daily Sitka Sentinel sports editor Tom Hesse, who covered regional tournament play, says the Sitka girls were starting to show signs of their early promise, but just ran out of time.
“They saw a little bit of Sid Riggs at the end of the regular season, as Sitka was trying to work Sid back into the lineup. And you could tell there was a difference when she did play, and when she was playing well, you could see Mt. Edgecumbe having to adapt to the speed. It’s like borrowing your friend’s BMW and realizing that you get a lot more kick when you step on the accelerator.”
The Mt. Edgecumbe Lady Braves will face either Galena or Valdez when the state tournament kicks off later this week.
In 2011, two Pennsylvania judges were sent to prison for getting paid for keeping juvenile detention centers full. A new documentary looks back at the case, interviewing kids and the judges involved.

Iditarod mushers kept volunteers in the Nulato checkpoint busy overnight. Some teams that weren’t expected to stay grabbed a few hours rest in the sleepy Yukon River village, while others who could have used the rest decided to blow through.
Martin Buser says his dog team didn’t have much of a challenge travelling down the Yukon River this year.
“They were bored getting down that trail slow and steady and kind of a punchy, drifted trail,” he said.
Buser’s quiet team curled up for a nap almost immediately after they arrived in Nulato. Sonny Lindner arrived shortly after. His dogs wolfed down the food he offered. He says his dog team is showing signs of fatigue from the early rough trail.
“That trail was really rough at the start and once you get on the good going, and everybody starts trotting right along then all those places that got sore earlier start showing up,” he said.
Lindner spent his eight hour mandatory rest massaging sore shoulders and wrapping sore wrists. He could have waited to rest long in Kaltag, but he says Nulato is much quieter.
Checkpoint volunteers were surprised when Aliy Zirkle announced she planned to stay for a few hours in. Her team came in alert, tails wagging. She stopped to make what she calls a “significant force reduction.”
“I had to reduce my squad by two dogs: Joe Schmoe and Scruggs, so we made a significant equipment reduction. I just lost about 40 pounds off the back of my sled,” she said.
Zirkle left behind all kinds of gear she doesn’t think she’ll need. She says 12 dogs is actually the perfect number, plus it’s eight fewer feet to booty, two personalities less to deal with and a little less food to carry. As for the river travel, Zirkle says what’s normally a monotonous run seemed to go by quickly.
“Yeah, I don’t feel like the river’s been that long for me this time,” Zirkle said.
As teams come off the Yukon in Kaltag, they’ll tackle what is a reportedly snow free trail in place all the way to Unalakleet, but that’s nothing new for mushers this year.
