Buccaneer Wrestling

The team opened up the season on a strong note while the Varsity wrestled at Houston High School and JV and Varsity Girls at Wasilla High School.

Overall it was a hard-fought weekend all around. I am proud of our wrestlers and their composure when faced with great adversity. Win or lose they walked off the mat with their heads held high knowing that they gave it everything they had.

The Bucs are ready to get back in the room to make adjustments and prepare for Throw Down in Snow Town this weekend.

J.V. Volleyball Results from (Coach Burns)

Kenny Lake Invite

The Lady Bucs JV Volleyball traveled to Kenny Lake to compete in the Kenny Lake Tournament against both Varsity and Junior Varsity teams. We were able to break our squad into two competitive teams which gave our athletes a lot of great playing time on the court.

The weekend started off with our Valdez JV team playing against Tai-Valley B. High servers for the match were Reese King and Hunter Hoppe. Savannah Cockerham led the team with attacks and kills at the net. We won the match in two sets with final scores of 25-22 and 25-17.

Next, our Valdez C team competed against Nenana. Both Ambrosia Woodgate led the team in serves for the game. Marianne Prax contributed to the teams with some excellent hustle plays and back-row attacks. We won the match in two sets with final scores of 25-18 and 25-23.

The Valdez JV team came back on the court to face Glennallen's B team. Our team scored off of a lot of great set up and attacks. We narrowly lost the first set 22-25 but came back determined in the second set, winning 25-12 and finishing the match in a 15-11 victory. The team showed a lot of resilience and strength of character.

Valdez C came up against Glennallen A for our final competition of Friday evening. Even though we lost this match in two sets, the team had a great opportunity to defend against strong hitters. They scrambled after the ball and excellent saves while covering for each other. Marianne Prax stepped up to help cover a wide section of the court, scored some back-row attacks, and also helped to maintain a positive attitude on the court. The two sets finished in 13-25 and 9-25.

On Saturday, Valdez C faced Tri-Valley A. Kyrcee Christensen and Marianne Prax had high serves for the match. The match was lost in two sets, 10-25 and 12-25.

Next, the Valdez JV faced Glennallen A in a grim defeat. Glennallen put up a strong attack, but our biggest opponent on the court was our own mental battle. We lacked the positive energy from Friday night and it affected our passing and coverage game. We lost the set in two games: 9-25 and 7-25.

The final match for Valdez JV (and for our team as a whole) was against Tri-Valley A. The mental battle continued with three giveaway points right from the start. This match was also a loss in two sets: 16-25 and 20-25.

Glennallen took the tournament championship followed by Tri-Valley A. Valdez JV took third place in the competition. Our team gained a lot of excellent experience playing against this diverse group of teams. We had a great weekend.
