Coach Amy Christianson called the team’s performance an amazing effort.
“I can say without a doubt that this is the most successful DDF team Homer has ever had,” she said. “We competed with 15 schools, most from the Anchorage area, and did amazingly well.”
This weekend, the team will head to the State Tournament, held at UAA.
This is the first year Homer’s DDF team has had more students qualified than the team limit of 15. “The students have worked very hard since the beginning of the year, and the community should all be very proud of how well they represent Homer High School at all of the tournaments,” she said.
