The Nikiski girls basketball team used a defensive tiebreaker to win the Holland America tournament on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Sitka.
The Bulldogs started the tournament by defeating the hosts 30-27 on Thursday.
Friday, Nikiski lost to Mt. Edgecumbe 34-16.
“We couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn,” Nikiski coach Scott Anderson said. “They played really well.
“One of the things about us is we’re fairly young and still figuring things out.”
Rachel Thompson led the Bulldogs in that game with nine points.
