Lady M’s beat Mt. Edgecumbe twice at home

The Homer Lady Mariners lit up the basketball court Friday night with eight 3-pointers in a 54-40 home victory over Mt. Edgecumbe High School. The 14-point margin in the final score, however, is far from indicative of the game’s action.
Homer senior Aurora Waclawski scored 22 points in the non-conference contest, sinking four 3-pointers and shooting 2-4 from the line. Just the day before, Waclawski turned in a 17-point performance in the Homer 43-40 squeaker over the Braves.

Nordic skiers settle for 1 day of Homer Invite

And, for O’Hara, the Mariners getting eight of their skiers on the podium was the “icing on the cake.”
