Last Friday, the Raider Swim Team had their last home meet of the season, and senior night. The meet started at 6:00 pm with team introductions and recognition of the seniors.

Jonathan Le and John Khongsuk were the only seniors on the team, both who have been competing for Unalaska since their freshman year. The senior swimmers had their names called and received flowers and a gift from their teammates.  Their coach read their future plans and their favorite memories from being on the swim team. Their families also went up to the front of the pool deck to take pictures.

Neither rain nor fog could stop 18 teams from tearing up the tundra last weekend on Alaska’s southernmost pop-up golf course.

In addition to a nine-hole course, the annual Tundra Golf Classic featured a marshmallow long drive. The Fire Department flipped burgers, and a campfire offered warmth and s'more opportunities, so even non-serious golfers had plenty of reasons to play.

Winning Team: Kraken Squad, with a score of 50.
Honorable Mention: Make Tundra Golf Great Again . . . with a reported score of 867-5309.
