Nikiski dominates Great Land awards

Nikiski's sweep of the Great Land Conference has extended to the conference's major awards, which were voted on last week.

The Bulldogs, who finished a dominant 3-0 in the GLC, had the Offensive Player of the Year in David Holloway, the Defensive Player of the Year in Josh Reilly, the Lineman of the Year in Gabe Lavigueur and Coach of the Year Scott Anderson.

Holloway, a first-team wide receiver and defensive back, finished up the regular season with 35 catches for 862 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also averaged a gaudy 24.6 yards per reception.

Reilly, a first-team quarterback and inside linebacker, was the core of the Nikiski defense that yielded just 39 points in eight regular season games.

Lavigueur, a first-team offensive guard and defensive lineman, provided valuable minutes battling linemen all year.

Finally, Anderson was recognized for leading a team to its second-straight small-schools state championship.

The Bulldogs nailed down seven of the 14 spots on first-team offense. Those honored were Reilly, Holloway, Lavigueur, running back Steven Calderwood, tackle Angelo Luna, kicker Chuck Seater and return specialist Calderwood. Seward's representative on the first team was center Ben Steward.

Nikiski had seven of the 11 spots on the first-team defense. Those honored were Reilly, Holloway, Lavigueur, outside linebacker Kyle Alexander, defensive back Jonah Swiderski, lineman Nigel Penhale, lineman Angelo Luna and punter Calderwood.

Seward landed outside linebacker Garrett Boyle and middle linebacker Darian Draper on the first team.

The Kenai volleyball team took the championship at the Lady Grizzly Invitational Friday and Saturday at Grace Christian School in Anchorage.

Friday and half of Saturday, the eight teams at the tournament engaged in pool play. Cordova came out of pool play with the No. 1 seed for Saturday's single-elimination touranment, while Kenai was second.

The Kardinals blew past Bethel to reach the semifinals. There, Kenai topped Homer in a three-game match. In the finals, the Kardinals faced off against Grace, which had upset Cordova. Kenai defeated the Grizzlies in two games.

Amy Fischer, Erica Shinn and Laura Rhyner were named to the all-tournament team. Kenai coach Vanessa Gabel also thought Angelica Carreon did a good job blocking and serving.

Kenai will host Homer in a Region III match Thursday.
