They did themselves and Coach Bea Klaich proud at the games played at Dimond High in Anchorage, coming home with fourth place, the title of “best sportsmanship” team and with two players named to the all-tournament team.

  • Voznesenka’s one-man wrestling force, Gavril Kalugin, headed to the Alaska School Athletic Association’s 123A State Championships at Anchorage Christian School in Anchorage Dec. 13-14. Battling a shoulder injury most of the season, Kalugin, 132, lost by a fall in 1:57 to Roger Miller of Wrangell High School in the championship round one. In the consolation round one, Kalugin lost in a 6-2 decision to Trevor Norris of Valdez.

  • The look on Senior Captain Pedro Ochoa’s face said it all after he beat Kotzebue’s Ben Phillips 5-4 and earned a top six finish at the Small Schools State Wrestling Tournament at ACS last weekend. Ochoa built a five-point lead, held on as the last second ended and then leapt into Coach Perk’s arm as tears of happiness poured from his eyes.

    Ochoa, who entered the tournament unseeded, lost his first round match to Ryan Radmer of Houston, the eventual runner-up at the weight class. Ochoa then went on to win three in a row and ended up placing fifth overall.
