City basketball rolls on

Now in its seventh week of play, Homer’s City Basketball League has seen few changes since the start of the season.
Best Western’s Riptide continues to steamroll opponents; this time, against a Bulletproof Nets team that many thought would give Riptide a run for their money. That would not be the case.
Monday’s games opened with a 60-50 win by the HomeRun Oil Titans over Gregoire’s Smooth Operators. In game two, the K-12 Educators gave Alaska Bible Institute a run for its money, but ended up falling just short of the win in the 61-60 nail-biter.
The last game of the evening proved fairly lopsided as the Riptide tore through the Nets by a score of 101-52.

League Standings as of 11-26
Best Western 7-0
Nets 5-2
ABI 3-4
Titans 3-4
Smooth Ops 2-5
K12 1-6

Homer’s Special Olympics Bowling Team takes a moment to pause for a photo after winning a number of medals in the Special Olympics Alaska Statewide Bowling Tournament portion of the winter competition in Anchorage earlier this month. Homer athletes brought home the gold in the singles, doubles and individual categories, as well as many silver and bronze awards. Dubbed the “Girl-Power Team,” Special Olympic bowlers Kinna Ledger, Krissy Norton, Kaylee Alward and Tanya McGee scored the highest points of any team in the bowling tournament and walked away with the first-place trophy.
