The secret to the Sitka Wolves’ success? Dedication, and outdoor swimming at Heart Lake.
The Sitka Wolves captured their second-straight Region V swimming title last weekend in Ketchikan, but – as usual – won’t have much time to rest on their laurels. The team is on its way to the state meet in Anchorage, where they hope to improve on their second-place finish last year.
Will Pate is a member of the Wolves swim team. He and his mom, Christine, sent this audio postcard from last weekend’s regionals in Ketchikan.
