KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan High School varsity volleyball team dropped all three of its matches 2-0 on Friday during the Small Schools Tournament. Kayhi is hosting the two-day event with six schools in town this weekend.

In addition to the Lady Kings, Metlakatla, Mount Edgecumbe, Sitka, Petersburg, Craig and Klawock high schools are in town. Mount Edgecumbe, Petersburg and Craig high schools brought more than one team, with junior varsity and C-teams also participating.

Games are being played in the Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium, which is split into two courts, and the Craig Family Gym. Competition begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday with three matches being played simultaneously on the three courts. Each game is only two sets, with an hour time limit. Admission to the tournament is $5.

The Small Schools Tournament is broken into three different levels, with C-teams in the white level, JV teams in the gold level and varsity teams in the maroon. Bracket play for the varsity squads will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, with the various championship games starting at 6 p.m. in Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium.

The tournament kicked off at 3 p.m. Kayhi’s varsity squad played Klawock, Petersburg and Craig, respectively. The Lady Kings will kick off their portion of Saturday’s schedule at 10 a.m. against Metlakatla. The two varsity squads have yet to crack the win column this tournament.

Craig, Klawock and Petersburg all finished Friday undefeated at 2-0.
