        Last weekend, on Friday September 1st, the Unalaska Raider Swim Team had their first meet of the year at our very own Aquatics Center. Some exciting new technology has been added to the pool including an electronic screen with swimmers’ names and their times as they swim. All of the swimmers’ times start with the beep of the speaker. Then, when they finish, they touch a metal pad that records their time and displays it on the screen overhead. Backup timers are present to make sure that swimmers’ times aren’t lost if a malfunction occurs.

You might notice something a little different at Eagle’s View Elementary next year. The time finally came to replace the carpet, despite staff and maintenance crew’s taking great care of it. The first step in its replacement, approval by the school board, took place last year. This summer while school was out, the carpet was replaced.

PCR’s annual Summer Soccer Camp finished up last Friday with a game against the community. The Summer Soccer Camp was open to any kids in grades 6th through 12th. Practice every day went from 1 pm to 6 pm Monday through Friday. Participants met at Tutiakoff Park to play on a real grass field with full sized goals. The head coach was Carlos Tayag.

The Unalaska City High School Native Youth Olympics (NYO) Team capped off an excellent season by being honored by the City Council during Tuesday’s meeting.

The NYO season started back in March with over 30 high schoolers joining the team. Athletes have a choice of ten different events. Although NYO is an individual sport in many ways, passing your skills down to younger or less experienced NYO athletes and helping your teammates is very important.

The Unalaska City High School Band traveled to Valdez last weekend to attend the Aurora Regional Music Festival. The event started on Thursday with an opening concert featuring various bands and choirs from the region. The Unalaska Band played A Grand Entrance by Brent Bain. Honor and Mass Band rehearsals took up the rest of the day. The Unalaska Band again had the most Honor Band musicians, making up over half of the Honor Band.
