The Unalaska City School District's travel costs are back on track.

This comes after Superintendent John Conwell reported last month the district incurred approximately $15,000 in additional travel costs for charter flights in the wake of October's fatal plane crash.

Over the weekend, the Unalaska high school swim team traveled to Kenai for the regional championship. Athletes from Kenai, Soldotna, Kodiak, Homer, and Unalaska high schools participated in the meet.

The entire Raider team did well, according to coach Erin Reinders, with many athletes beating their personal records. Sophomore Shane Morris qualified for state, with a time of 57.54 seconds in the 100-yard butterfly event. Right now, that time is the 16th fastest time in the state.  Morris also beat the UCSD record for 100-yard butterfly.

Pre-meet excitement turned quickly to adrenaline when the plane carrying the Cordova swimmers ran off the runway at Unalaska's airport on Thursday, Oct. 17.

Though they suffered no critical physical injuries, concern for the swimmers' mental health took priority.

They stayed the night Alexandria House, and Unalaska's swim team and other community members provided clothes and comfort. The Cordova team flew home the next day on a chartered flight to be with their families.
