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.

Last Tuesday after school, science fair participants from grades 7-12 gathered in the high school gymnasium for the UCSD Science Fair. For most students, it has been the culmination of months of work on their project. Parents, teachers, staff, and community members were invited to observe the hard work of these young scientists.

Last weekend, nineteen students from Unalaska City High School traveled to Anchorage to compete in the Russian, Spanish, and German Language competitions. Mrs. Galena Roraback, the school’s foreign language teacher, accompanied the students along with two other advisors. Mrs. Roraback has worked hard all year to teach and prepare the students, and is glad that students are able to finally show their knowledge of their respective languages.
