The Unalaska Raiders are headed to state.  The boys’ basketball team qualified for the state tournament last weekend, winning all three of their regional games.

The girls' team narrowly missed a state berth. They won their first game against Dillingham 40-43, and went on to play Bristol Bay.  Bristol Bay outscored the Raiders 53-28.  The girls made a second bid for the State Tournament on Saturday, when they faced Dillingham for a second time.  They lost the second seed spot to Dillingham by just four points.  Alleri Tungul and Kayla Villamor made the All Tournament team.

The boys will take the court for their first state contest this Thursday at 8 AM. KUCB will broadcast all the action live from Anchorage.  The game schedule and bracket can be found here.
