Lady Kings drop game to JDHS

KETCHIKAN (KDN) — In their first match of the Region V tournament on Thursday, the Ketchikan High School Lady Kings volleyball squad dropped its game against the Juneau-Douglas High School Lady Crimson Bears 3-1.

The loss bumps Ketchikan to the consolation bracket, and the Lady Kings must win outright in the double-elimination tournament, to win their first region title since 2015.

The Lady Crimson Bears jumped out to a 25-8 win on their home court in the first set on Friday. And they carried that momentum into the second frame, winning 25-14.

Ketchikan bounced back in the third set, flipping the score on Juneau-Douglas and winning 25-14. But the Lady Crimson Bears rebounded, and were victorious in the fourth set, 25-15.

The 3-1 victory nudges Juneau-Douglas ahead in the tournament, and the Lady Crimson Bears will meet Thunder Mountain High School in the semifinal on Friday.

The winner of that match will move on to the Region V championship on Saturday. The loser will play Ketchikan at 7 p.m. on Friday.
