KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan High School wrestling team started its abbreviated spring season on Saturday.

Kayhi was one of six teams to compete in the Pilot Invitational, which was hosted in Juneau. In addition to the First City, teams from Thunder Mountain, Mt. Edgecumbe, Sitka, Wrangell and Petersburg high schools participated.

Alaska’s high school wrestling season, which typically is a fall and winter sport that lasts for eight weeks, was pushed to the spring due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. It is scheduled to run until mid-May.

Although, because of the immediate jump from the boys’ and girls’ basketball seasons — as well as other spring sports starting up — not everyone on Kayhi’s wrestling roster was able to compete this weekend. Kayhi’s grapplers will travel to Wrangell on April 9-10.
