It’s been barely a week since the Ketchikan High School and Craig High School volleyball teams met on the court in Clarke Cochrane Gymnasium.

And now the Lady Kings and Lady Panthers will square off again.

But this time they’ll meet at Craig High School.

The two teams will match up on Friday evening, and again on Saturday.

Ketchikan fell 3-1 to Craig on Sept. 27.

Tied 13-13 in the first set, Ketchikan won 12 of the ensuing 17 points to claim the 25-18 victory.

But the Lady Panthers controlled the match from there on out, winning the next three sets 25-23, 25-17 and 25-22.

Craig also beat Thunder Mountain High School 3-1 on Sept. 28, to start its season 2-0.

The Lady Panthers were the runner-up in the 2A state tournament last season.

Ketchikan is still in search of its first win this season.

But despite their struggles in the win column, the Lady Kings have given Thunder Mountain and Juneau-Douglas high schools a run for their money in regional matchups.

Ketchikan held leads in both the first and second sets against Thunder Mountain on Sept. 28, but fell 3-0 in the best-of-five match.
