            The NCAA teams competing in the March Madness tournament could learn a thing or two from the Port Lion's girl's basketball team. Port Lions' coach Dana Strong said that the members of his team made up their minds a year ago to win this year's 1A state championship title.


--          (Port Lions 1                            "Yeah, we expected ...the way around.")

 

            You heard that right: the state 1A champions chose to seek out bigger schools to compete with during their regular season play.

 

--          (Port Lions 2                                              "Oh yeah we ... fun to coach)
 

            During Saturday's championship game at Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, the hard work paid off: Port Lions beat Fort Yukon 49 to 30.

 

--          (Port Lions 3                                    "Well, it was ... the fourth quarter.")
 

            Not bad for a team of just eight players which, by the way, is three stronger than last year. Earlier this month two of the girls were named to the all-state team; junior Cierra Robustellini was named to the first team and junior Katie Strong was named to the third team. On Saturday Robustellini led with 18 points and 13 rebounds while Strong scored 16 points and grabbed eight steals.

Strong says the team, which includes three juniors, three freshmen and two eighth graders is already planning for another victory next year.

 

--          (Port Lions 4                                               "I'm just so ... They're Fun.")

 

            ...and now they're Alaska's 1A state basketball champions. Port Lions' Kings clamed the state crown this weekend in a championship game in Sullivan Arena against Fort Yukon. The last time the Port Lion girls took home a state championship was in 1985.
