Postcard from Ketchikan: Swimmers Region V champs

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.

Eight Sitka boys qualified for state in individual events, as well as all three relay teams. For the girls, team anchor Megan Reid qualified in her two individual events.

This weekend in Anchorage (November 2-3, 2012), the Wolves will be challenging three-time state defending champions Dimond High School.
