Girls, Boys Basketball Face Wasilla This Weekend


Brianna Gibbs/KMXT

KMXT told you earlier this week, today and tomorrow are your last opportunities to watch the Lady Bears basketball team at home. The girls are undefeated this season and currently ranked number 1 among large schools in Alaska.
Coach Amy Fogle said this weekend the girls will host the Wasilla Warriors, who were last year’s state champs.
“They had a big senior class last year and they won itso this year we have the senior class and they’re kind of rebuilding but they have a great coach and they’re going to step on the floor ready to play basketball. They’re record certainly doesn’t show how good they are and how much they’ve improved over the season. They got two big wins at the Dimond Tournament in Anchorage a couple weeks ago and they played some real close games against some real good teams so I think they’re gaining some momentum and they’re going to feel good coming in here to Kodiak. People like to come here. They play in front of a big crowd and you know it’s always exciting to play against the number one ranked team in the state.”
Senior Isabelle Hiner said she’s looking forward to playing the Warriors, who the Lady Bears haven’t faced since last season.
“I feel like it will be a challenge because we haven’t played against them since last year and they have a really good coach, so we’ll see what happens.”
The games start today with C-team play at 4 p.m. JV will play tonight at 5:30 p.m. and varsity at 7 p.m. On Saturday, C-team will start at noon, with JV at 1:30 p.m. and varsity wrapping up the weekend at 3 p.m.
The boys basketball team will also face Warriors this weekend, but they’ll be playing in Wasilla. Coach David Anderson said it should be a good match up for the Bears, and a great weekend of basketball.
“Well you know Wasilla hasn’t had a great season but they’ve beaten some of the teams we’ve lost to – Palmer and Soldotna. So we’re going to have our hands full. We’re young, it’s an up and down season and hopefully we can pull two out of these things on the road again.”
Sophomore Alec Canete-Hall said he’s excited to face the Warriors, which they haven’t seen on the court at all this season.
“I think they only have two losses too so it should be a good game.”
Tune in to KMXT next week when we visit with each of the Kodiak High School basketball teams a little more in depth and talk to players from both squads about the season and upcoming region tournament.
