Since the start of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has slowed down athletics — on the field and off. Dillingham athletes and coaches still found a way to finish out the year with a virtual hoo-rah, and the coaches are looking to next year.
The wolverines wrestled hard on Saturday at the state championships in Anchorage. The girls' team won 10th overall and first out of the 2A schools, and the boys won fifth place overall and second out of the 2A schools.
Dillingham had a strong showing at Saturday's regionals; the team will be sending 12 boys and three girls to the Wrestling State Championships. New Stuyahok and King Cove each qualified four athletes for state; Bristol Bay Borough qualified two; Manokotak, Newhalen and Sand Point are each sending one athlete.
