Senioritis, that infamous condition afflicting every high schooler near the end of their career, is a lie.

The Unalaska Raiders boys basketball team gathered at City Hall Tuesday evening to receive a phone call from Alaska's governor, Bill Walker. Walker began by saying it was an honor for him to call and congratulate the team for winning the 2016 state championship. He said he's been following the team over the past few years, enjoyed watching them progress and complimented the 12 boys on their accomplishment. Walker also gave a shout-out to Coach Kent Russell and all the parents - indeed the whole community - for supporting the high schoolers on and off the court.

The Unalaska Raiders boys' basketball team won the state championship Saturday night in Anchorage, after the team squared off against the Petersburg Vikings, winning 49 to 39 for the Class 2A state championship title.

It was the first time the Unalaska team won the statewide championship since the late '90s. Raiders Coach Kent Russell, who was recently named Coach of the Year by the Alaska Association of Basketball Coaches, credited an excellent defense as crucial.
