Hoping to build off an undefeated regular season, the Unalaska Raiders are headed to the 2A Volleyball State Championships this week.

The girls’ varsity team qualified for state with a second-place finish at the regional tournament earlier this month.

Senior Captain Louella “Louie” Tan said she was thrilled to advance after narrowly missing a spot last season.

“I’ve always wanted to go to state," said Tan. "Last year was a really close one, and we only lost by three points. So it was really cool and awesome to make it this year."
