Activities director's Corner

Events for February:

JV Tournament:

Galena hosted its annual JV tournament. Nulato and Huslia brought a combined girls team, Nulato, Huslia, and Tanana all brought boys teams. The tournament was made possible through the gracious efforts of many local volunteers, the hard work of the kitchen staff, a number of local refs, and local and visiting coaches. Thank you to all of the people who helped out.

JV upcoming events:

Galena JV boys will be traveling to Unalakleet to compete against their JV team on the 17th and 18th.

Galena JV girls will be hosting the Malemutes of Koyuk and the Wolves of Nulato on the 24th and 25th.

The boys will be traveling to Huslia for a tournament on the 24th and 25th.

Varsity Basketball:

As I write this, the boys and girls are currently competing down in Homer. From what the radio is announcing, it sounds like they have been playing some hard fought battles. This is Galena's first time attending this tournament. It was a good tournament, but we will be trading it for a tournament in Bethel next year.

The boys and girls traveled to Eielson on the 3rd and 4th. The boys split with Eielson winning he first night and falling the second. The girls swept both games.

Both boys and girls will be traveling to Hutch for games on the 17th and 18th.

Valdez boys and girls will be in Galena on the 24th and 25th. The 24th is also the night that Jenna's jersey will be retired. The 25th is senior night. It is not our last home game, but it is the last time that both our boys and girls teams will both be home at the same time.

Skiing:

Unalakleet will be traveling to compete against Galena's ski team on the 17th and 18th. Please talk with Jon Korta if you would be interesting in helping out at this event.

Galena will be sending skiers to the Koyuk meet for the first time. Multiple BSSD schools will be attending this meet and it will give our skiers a good look at the some of the skiers that will be their main competition at WISA this year.

Communication:

I have been trying to do a better job at getting information out to the community by both using the wireless and the coffee shop to post announcements. I am in the process of creating a new email list of community members that I will hopefully have done soon.
