During the second week of March, Kenai Central High hosted the Region III-4A Basketball Tournament. This event brought boys and girls basketball teams from Kodiak, Palmer, Wasilla, Colony, Homer, Skyview and Soldotna to Kenai for three days of spirited competition. We also hosted bands, dance teams and cheerleaders from the participating schools.
This event is rich in tradition, and the energy generated by the fans and participants is incredibly positive. This event took place in fine fashion due to the commitment and effort made by the hosting community.
So many people contributed to this event in so many ways I cannot name them individually. The tournament could not proceed as it has without countless hours of work by the parents of the current players, longtime supporters of activities who reside in our community and the local businesses who donated supplies or provided financial support for the event.
The KCHS Basketball Booster Club parents met countless evenings planning the event. The tournament also requires cooperation among competing schools. We would like to thank Soldotna High School for helping with this tournament, as well.
I would like to again thank all of the people who made this a spectacular event, and congratulations to the teams who represented our conference so well in the state basketball tournament.
