The Sitka High DDF team celebrates its four state titles in the Cuddy Center at the University of Alaska Anchorage on Saturday (2-18-12). The Sitka team won the 3A Drama, Debate, and Forensics titles, as well as the overall team title, and nine individual championships. Twenty-three teams from across the state competed head-to-head in the three-day event. Sitka outscored all schools by over twenty points, including the large schools (4A) winner South Anchorage High School. Luckily, Alaska Airlines did not charge the team excess baggage fees for all the heavy metal!
Although graduation is this week, school is not over for some science students at Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka. The class, known as SeaTech, is headed to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego to present their original research on beluga and narwhal bioacoustics. more
