This past weekend the Lady Raiders Volleyball team traveled to Anchorage and played in the Lumen Christi Dig Pink tournament. There were a total ten teams that participated in this tournament. The Lady Raiders played a total of nine matches. Out of those nine matches, five of them were conference matches, which they had won. The teams at the tournament were all competitors and all the games that the Lady Raiders played had different levels of intensity. The Lady Raider played aggressively against the Birchwood Knights and the Dillingham Wolverine, who were state contenders in the 2013 season. The tournament was extensive, yet competitive and the Lady Raiders were able to fight and win some battles. The team ended up placing fourth out of the ten teams and is currently ranked first in the Borealis Conference with a 5-0 record!

Community was the flavor during this year’s Fall Coffeehouse, a bi-annual event organized by the Aleutian Arts Council. The event featured an immense variety of musical talents from all different sectors of the community including teachers, scientists, and city and state employees. Along with the great music, the audience enjoyed homemade hors d'oeuvres and coffee.
The Fall Coffeehouse opened with the harmonizing vocals of Stephanie Laut and Annie Ropeik, along with Andrew Miller on guitar. Husband and wife Andre and Charity Kitsyuk’s melodic tandem followed. Brent Bain played keyboards in a performance of a piece that he wrote, with Kerry McNamara accompanying on bass clarinet. Ethan Nichols dazzled the audience with his dobro and fiddle skills. Local favorite Our Band didn't disappoint: their set included fun tunes on a variety of musical instruments. And the night ended with Lynda Lybeck Robinson on keyboards and Sharon O’Malley on djembe, which segued into a free-for-all community jamming session that engaged everyone.
