Lady Chieftains coach Teresa Fairbanks talks to the team during a break.
The Klawock High School Lady Chieftains faced the Skagway Lady Panthers Wednesday afternoon in the Southeast Regional 1A Basketball Tournament at Ketchikan High School.
When the Klawock girls played Skagway earlier this year, they lost by dozens of points. This time, the score was 37-32. Klawock lost, but by just a couple baskets.
Two of the Lady Chieftains starting players were benched earlier this seasons because of injuries, so the team has had a lot of adapting to do.
KRBD’s Emily Files talked after the game with team members Tiona Rudick, Keilani Stockton, Courtney Guthrie, Sierra Geibel, Jill Carl, and first-year coach Teresa Fairbanks.
The Lady Chieftains will play against Hoonah High School Lady Braves Friday at 11 a.m.
