Wrangell High School’s girls’ basketball team is heading to state. 

The Wrangell Lady Wolves won the Alaska Region Five (V) 2A Championship in Ketchikan on Friday (March 11) against the Metlakatla Miss Chiefs, 26-21, after going undefeated in the regional tournament. 

That sends the Lady Wolves to the 2A state championship in Anchorage this week as the top team from mid-size Southeast Alaska high schools, and the top-seeded girls’ 2A team in the state

But Wrangell’s boys won’t be going to state this year, after losing the runner-up round of the regional tournament to the Petersburg Vikings in the final minutes of the game, 31-38.  

Last year, Wrangell’s teams were unable to compete at the regional tournament after a COVID case in the schools sent the district to distance learning. 

The Lady Wolves’ first game at the state tournament is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. on Thursday (March 17) against the eighth-seeded Hooper Bay Warriors. Games will be streamed on the web and can be found at
