Nikiski dropped to 1-1 in the conference.

Olivia-Douglas expects a competitive conference season, saying the teams are matched evenly top to bottom.

"I'm really pleased with the opening round of conference play," she said. "Our region is closely matched and really competitive. Right now it's
anybody's game, which is great."
