Volleyball Cancelled Due to Weather, XC Changes Start Times

    The Thunder Mountain Falcons, shown in action against Juneau-Douglas, volleyball games against Ketchikan have been cancelled this weekend.

    The Thunder Mountain High School Falcons home volleyball games scheduled for tonight and Saturday against the Ketchikan Lady Kings have been cancelled due to the high wind advisory and inclement weather and the Region V Cross-Country championships in Ketchikan have time changes.

    The Falcons volleyball games against the Lady Kings will be rescheduled for a later date.

    The Region V Cross-Country Championships Division I (4A), Division II (3A) and Division III (1A/2A) races at Ketchikan's Ward Lake have been changed. 

    The DIII (1A/2A) races are at 12:45 p.m. for boys and 1:25 for girls (they were originally scheduled for 10:15 a.m. and 10:55 a.m).

    A bus will be at Ward Lake at 2:10 p.m. to pick up DIII teams for the Inter-Island Ferry Authority.

    The DI and DII boys now race at 2:15 p.m. and the girls race at 2:50 p.m. (originally scheduled for 9 a.m. and 9:35 a.m., respectively). 

    Another buss will be at Ward Lake at 3:40 p.m. to pick up DI and DII teams for the 4:15 p.m. ferry across the Tongass Narrows to the Ketchikan International Airport for departing flights.

    Wrangell will run the same course at Ward Lake on Sunday morning as they can't get to Ketchikan before 4:48pm. Those results will be added to the DIII results and finalized. 

    The Alaska School Activities Association approved the time changes and races.
