Eight from the Unalaska swim team traveled to Lathrop High School in Fairbanks for the Lathrop Invitational swimming and diving meet at Hamme Pool. Ten teams from Fairbanks, North Pole, Palmer, Unalaska, Valdez, and Wasilla competed in the event.  Each swimmer was allowed to compete in four events but no more than two individual events.  Unalaska student athletes competed in 18 out of 24 events Friday evening.

This year’s Aleutian Tundra Golf Classic started as the remnants of Tropical Storm Omais swept Unalaska with gale force winds and driving rain.  Six dedicated teams and a handful of volunteers braved the weather on Saturday.  When the storm cleared on Sunday more teams joined the action.

The annual Tundra Golf Classic is a fundraiser for Unalaska Community Broadcasting.  At preliminary count, the fundraiser brought in just over $11,000 from sponsorships, team fees, and skills contests.
