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 Raiders are headed to state.  The boys’ basketball team qualified for the state tournament last weekend, winning all three of their regional games.

The girls' team narrowly missed a state berth. They won their first game against Dillingham 40-43, and went on to play Bristol Bay.  Bristol Bay outscored the Raiders 53-28.  The girls made a second bid for the State Tournament on Saturday, when they faced Dillingham for a second time.  They lost the second seed spot to Dillingham by just four points.  Alleri Tungul and Kayla Villamor made the All Tournament team.

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.

The teams traveled to Anchorage where they competed in the Rally the Regions tournament, which is a gathering of rural basketball teams from around the state. Rally the Regions is a four game tournament with the first three games being a “Round Robin” style and the last game being for the championship or other places.
