Donald Trump’s visa ban for citizens from seven predominantly Muslim nations violates their principles.

Last weekend, the Dimond Boys’ JV and the Lumen Christi Lady Archangels played the Unalaska Raiders here at home for homecoming week. The games started Friday night with the Raider boys’ game against Dimond. The game was back and forth from the beginning and in the end, the game came down to the final buzzer. With seconds left, sophomore guard Trevor Wilson hit a clutch three to send the game into overtime. The Raiders ultimately won in overtime with a score of 52-45.

When Unalaska’s basketball teams returned from a long, demanding week of competition, they were met at the airport by Mayor Frank Kelty. 

Kelty recognized the Raiders boys’ team for winning two consecutive tournaments, the Rally of the Regions in Anchorage in December and the Cordova Invitational Tournament in January. Carter Price earned special honors as the most valuable player in both tournaments.
