Let your light shine
The lights in the sky over Sitka on Sunday evening (8-11-13) weren’t all meteors.

The Sitka Wolves have won the Southeast region 3A basketball tournament. The Wolves decisively beat the Mt. Edgecumbe Braves Saturday afternoon, 62 to 45.

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. more
