Meet the Kings set for Saturday

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan High School girls and boys basketball seasons are just around the corner.

This week, the Kings and Lady Kings held their first official practices of the season and are scheduled to play their first games in just a couple of weeks.

Before the season officially tips off on Dec. 15, Kayhi will host its annual “Meet the Kings” event on Saturday evening at the Clarke Cochrane Gym.

Kayhi’s four basketball teams for the 2017-18 season — along with its assistants and coaching staffs, will be introduced to the community for the first time this year.

Beginning at 6 p.m., the Kayhi Lady Kings junior varsity team will take the court, followed by the JV Kings team.

At 7 p.m. the defending Region V champion-Lady Kings varsity team led by head coach Kelly Smith will introduce themselves; 45 minutes later, Eric Stockhausen and his Kayhi Kings will step onto the hardwood for the first time.

In addition to getting acquainted with this year’s teams, Ketchikan will also be able to meet the 17-18 Pep Band, KHS Cheer team and K-Highlites.

A cheesesteak fundraiser will also be held.
