Volleyball season ends at regionals

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — One day after falling to Juneau-Douglas High School in three straight sets in the first round of the Region V Tournament, the Ketchikan High School volleyball team came out firing with its season on the line.

The Saturday morning rematch between Kayhi and Juneau-Douglas in the double-elimination tournament had Kayhi on top, early. The Lady Kings jumped out to a 25-23 win in the first set in Juneau. But that was all they could muster against the Lady Crimson Bears. Juneau-Douglas would go to work in the ensuing three sets — with its season on the line, too — winning 25-16, 25-9 and 25-9 in the best of five battle.

Juneau-Douglas would ultimately fall to Thunder Mountain High School in the regional final on Saturday afternoon, as the Lady Falcons would win their first regional title in program history. Ketchikan’s last regional title was in 2015.
