A happy end after an unhappy start of the Class 3A state basketball tournament left the Nikiski girls with fourth-place honors for the season-ending weekend.
The Bulldogs finished with a 37-33 win over conference foe Anchorage Christian Schools on Saturday morning at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex in Anchorage, giving a good send-off to seniors Rachel Thompson and Chena Litzen.
“I feel very happy, accomplished, because no one thought we could do anything this year,” Thompson said after the game. “We played hard the whole tournament, and I’m so happy and proud of our team.
