Tournament visitors positive

 


The Haines High school wrestling team would like to personally thank all the local volunteers for their contributions to the Region V wrestling tournament last week. This event could not have been a success without the help of you and the many other volunteers who donated their time.

The feedback we received from visiting coaches, parents and athletes was absolutely positive. A special thank you goes out to our athletic director Tiana Taylor, Michael and Michele Byer, Rene Martin, Matt Davis, Ashley Sage and Darwin Feakes.  

Thank you to Laurie Mastrella, The American Legion, Bill and Mary Jane Valentine, and Bruce and Jenny Lynn Smith for help with paying the  airfare for the three athletes who qualified for state. I believe this was a major part in the success these athletes achieved this weekend. 

And most of all, thank you to all the friends, fans and family that attended the region championships and cheered on our hometown athletes.
