The 33rd Annual 1A Coastal Conference Basketball Tournament has come to a close after an exciting weekend of basketball action. Our 1A teams displayed sportsmanship and discipline in the midst of extreme pressure in the loudest gym in Alaska. Good job to all our student-athletes, you make us all so very proud!
