KETCHIKAN (KDN) — It was a rare midweek matchup for a pair of First City basketball squads on Tuesday.

For the first time in its history, Ketchikan Charter School jumped down street to Schoenbar Middle School, as both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams played each other. This is the first year KCS has had its own basketball teams.

KCS’ boys’ and girls’ squads went head-to-head against the Schoenbar boys’ and girls’ B teams. Schoenbar’s squads wound up on top — 49-20 in the girls’ game, and 45-37 in the boys’ matchup.

Following the set of games between Schoenbar’s B teams and KCS, Schoenbar’s A teams battled the Ketchikan High School freshmen squads.

Schoenbar and Kayhi split those meetings, as the Schoenbar girls’ A team beat the Kayhi girls’ freshmen 28-24.

The Kayhi boys’ freshmen team beat the Schoenbar boys’ A squad 51-28.

Here are game recaps from Schoenbar’s matchups against the charter school:
