After finishing up its home portion of the schedule, the Ketchikan High School volleyball team sets its sights on the upcoming Juneau Jive Invitational Tournament.

Beginning on Thursday and running through Sunday, the tournament will showcase 12 high school volleyball programs from around the state of Alaska.

The Lady Kings will enter the tournament still in search of their first match victory of the season.

Kayhi fell to Juneau-Douglas High School on Friday and Saturday evening at the Clarke Cochrane Gym, losing the pair of matches by a margin of three sets to none.

One week after the Juneau Jive, the Lady Kings will return to Anchorage for the Dimond Tournament.

Kayhi was last in Anchorage in mid-September for the annual Spiketacular Tournament.

The Lady Crimson Bears of Juneau-Douglas won last year’s Jive tournament after defeating Eagle River High School in the championship game.
