In Kake, a Tlingit village of roughly 500 people in Southeast, the basketball program has expanded in a big way. And it’s making a difference not only in how the players see the sport, but themselves as well.
Today marks the one month anniversary of the August 18th landslide, which claimed the lives of three men in Sitka. Two of them were brothers. Elmer and Ulises Diaz were 26 and 25. And last week (09-08-15), the gym opened it’s doors for friends to play in their honor.
FINAL: The Sitka Lady Wolves are the 3A State Basketball champions. The Sitka girls beat Valdez 53-50 on the main court of the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage Saturday afternoon (3-21-15) to claim the title. Find complete tournament information here.
