and state tournaments, there is still an opportunity to see the team in action

to bad weather, but the Kodiak team finally finished its annual intra-squad
pentathlon recently. In the event, athletes compete for points in the high

Kodiak next heads to Juneau
Friday and Saturday for the Juneau Invitational. The regional tournament,
which is hosted by Skyview this year, takes place May 15th and 16th, and the
state tournament will be held in Fairbanks
May 22nd and 23rd.
