The Rewind: East volleyball snaps title drought, UAA men’s basketball dominant in season openers, UAF’s Kendall Kramer wins regional XC crown

Welcome to The Rewind, a weekly digest that puts a spotlight on the biggest stories and best performances from Alaska’s world of sports.

The final weekend of the 2023 Alaska high school swimming postseason came to a close and the playoffs for prep volleyball got underway with regional action. On the college sports scene, the University of Alaska Anchorage volleyball team won a pair of road matches, the men’s basketball team got off to a hot start and the men’s hockey team dropped a pair of road games to their rivals. On the national stage, several Alaska-born athletes had impressive showings in their respective sports and levels of competition.

Headlines and highlights

The last time a Bettye Davis East Anchorage high school volleyball team hoisted the Region IV championship trophy was 2006. More than half of this year’s team wasn’t even born and the rest were less than a year old and in diapers.

On Saturday night at Service High School, the resurgent Thunderbirds snapped the 17-year title drought after going the distance with reigning 4A state champion Dimond and falling in five sets but rebounded in the if-necessary game to capture the crown and head into state on the highest note possible.

“They pushed us to the brink, gave us all we could handle, and we came in confident and Dimond brought it,” East coach Garrett Danner said. “There was a lot of pressure, we were struggling with handling it but we didn’t give up. That’s been a sentiment all year long.”

The game-winning kill came from senior outside hitter Mariaha Afuvai, who capped off a 17-11 run for the Thunderbirds following a back-and-forth opening to the extra game to secure the 30-24 one-set victory.

“I was hoping that it was going to be in but I wasn’t sure,” Afuvai said. “I was just shocked because there’s a lot of emotions, but I have to thank my dad because he reminds me to use my brain during games.”


Junior outside hitter Jirah Boma was a force in both games and throughout the tournament and was one of five Thunderbirds that received all-conference honors and was one of just two on the team to be voted to the first team.

“It feels really great because I was second-team all-conference last year so my goal this year was to be first team all-conference and I made that goal,” Boma said. “It feels good, because it’s like getting respect from everyone for my talent and I appreciate that.”

The 2023 Alaska high school swimming and diving postseason came to a close in the state’s capital city this past Saturday and saw the Service boys repeat as state champions by a wide margin for the second year in a row while the hometown Juneau-Douglas girls unseated Dimond, which had won the last six in a row.

“The meet went really well — it’s hard to come on the road and swim in unfamiliar circumstances, but they really stepped up and did a great job,” Service coach Ben Kitchen said. “It was just toughness across the board.”

The UAA men’s basketball team officially opened its 2023-24 regular season with a pair of exhibition victories over California State University Maritime Academy last week. Their season opener took place on Friday afternoon in front of a home crowd of over 3,000 that consisted of 2,600 fifth graders from across the Anchorage School District, and the Seawolves put on a scoring clinic in both games, beating the Keelhaulers by double figures in each contest.

After averaging 17 points on 60 percent shooting as well as 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals in the two games, senior guard Tyson Gilbert was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference men’s basketball player of the week. He shot 50 percent from behind the arc in both games and led the Seawolves with a game-high 22 points Saturday.

The women’s basketball team was also in action over the weekend and narrowly fell 76-75 to Pacific University on Sunday. Leading the Seawolves in scoring in the valiant effort was junior guard Jazzpher Evans who recorded a game-high 20 points followed by junior forward Tori Hollingshead with 13 points and junior guard Senya Rabouin with 12 points.

The UAA volleyball team is riding a three-match win streak after hosting a pair of GNAC foes 3-1 over the past week. On Thursday, the Seawolves completed their season sweep of Wester Oregon and avenged an early season loss to Saint Martin’s on Saturday night. Junior libero Reilly Plumhoff received her first weekly honors after being named Great Northwest Athletic Conference volleyball defensive player of the week following a week in which she led all GNAC players in both digs per set (5.00) and aces per set (0.88).

Both the UAA and UAF cross-country teams competed at the NCAA West Regional championship Saturday and saw strong showings from their respective top endurance runners. Fairbanks product Kendall Kramer won the women’s race by clocking in with a time of 20:29.8. Junior Cole Nash posted the top finish for the Seawolves on the day by covering the 10-kilometer course in 31:07 to finish 16th in the men’s race.

“I wasn’t too sure about today – I definitely wanted to get top-five to qualify for nationals,” Kramer said in a statement. “It’s a really good field and I didn’t really have any expectations. I was comfortable with the pace, and kept picking it up. When I started to have a gap I got into the mental state to maintain that. It came down to a sprint, but I had some kick left in me. I figured it would come down to that, and I saved a little bit.”

On Monday, UAA Athletics announced that the Seawolves men’s cross country team earned an at-large bid to the 2023 NCAA Division II Cross Country National Championships that will take place in two weeks down in Joplin, Missouri on Nov. 18th. It will mark the 15th appearance for the UAA men’s team and the first since 2018.

The UAA men’s hockey team dropped the first two games in its annual Governor’s Cup series with rival Fairbanks on the road this past weekend. The Seawolves fell to the Nanooks 6-1 on Friday night with their lone goal coming from senior forward Ben Almquist and came up just short of a comeback on Saturday before ultimately falling 5-4 in a game where Anchorage’s Aiden Westin and Maximilion Helgeson scored their first two goals.


Alaska stars shining Outside

Anchorage’s Tyree Wilson recorded his half of a sack in the fourth quarter of the Las Vegas Raiders’ 30-6 home victory over the New York Giants on Sunday in Week 9 of the NFL season. He also recorded his first career quarterback hit and set a his single-game season high for total tackles with four including three solos and one assisted in 32 total defensive snaps (51 percent).

Anchorage’s Jayden Heartwell helped the Dickinson State University football team clinch the program’s ninth straight North Star Athletic Association title by recording his first career pick-six in the Blue Hawks’ 48-17 rout of the Valley City State University Vikings. The former South Anchorage high standout returned his fourth interception of the season and 12th of his career 40 yards to the house to extend his team’s lead to 34-3 in the third quarter.

Wasilla’s Mikayla Lantto recorded her second goal of the season for the Long Island University women’s hockey team in the Sharks’ 3-1 home victory over the Assumption University Greyhounds on Friday.

Ketchikan’s Isaac Updike finished 15th in the elite men’s field of 26 in the Abbott Dash which doubled as the USA Track & Field Road 5K Championship on Saturday in Manhattan, New York, with a mark of 14 minutes, 6 seconds.
