2009 Alaska State Championships
It was long day, it was a hard day, and it was a GREAT day!
20 competitors and 40 medals. 29 GOLD, 8 Silver, and 3 Bronze. WOW!
Some of our students ended up against each other which is absolutely heartbreaking because we know that they are both champions seperated only by the points at the end of the match.
Parents, as always, were great! Many were able to help out, keep athletes moving, and were there to cheer for all our team. Our athletes conducted themselves in a way that made us very proud.
At the end of the day, we don't have the best team because of all the tournament wins, we have the best team because of our athletes winning spirits that drives them to do their best.
Pictures coming soon!
