HMS volleyball team rebuilds

HMS Volleyball

HMS Volleyball

Homer Middle School volleyball lost in the first round of the Borough Tournament last week, falling to Soldotna Maroon 24-26 and 23-25.
Head Coach Lisa Fellows called it a “rebuilding year,” as the team only had one “A” player — Raisa Basargin — return from last year.
Fellows said eighth-graders Basargin, Kendra Raymond and Maggie Alston anchored this year’s team. And, she’s looking forward to using her huge contingent of seventh-graders for next year’s team.
She added that Calla Seay will be the “one to watch” next year.
HMS also fielded a “mixed-6” team with boys, and competed against Nikolaevsk. Fellows said boys will have get a chance to play in the league in coming years.

Homer hosts State Bantam Hockey Tourney

This weekend, Homer Hockey and Kevin Bell Arena host the 2014 Alaska State Bantam Hockey Championships. This is the first time the tournament has been held in Homer, and local Bantam skaters’ families are working hard to make it the best ever.
Homer folks know the balmy 18-degree temperature in our rink is perfect, but others don’t always agree. If you have a blanket you are willing to loan to the rink next weekend for our guests to bundle up in, please drop clean blankets off at the rink. If you mark them with your name, we’ll do our best to get it back to you following the tournament.
