An emotional loss for the Chugiak boys basketball team in the 2018 Alaaka State basketball championships, falling to defending state champions Dimond High.
Well, it’s #March Madness time again, and as much as I’d like to be out in the sunshine, it’s also great fun to be shooting the march to the state championships. Here, Chugiak’s Derryk Snell survives a hard foul from West’s Ayual Dak during their 45-43 semi-final CIC playoff win over the Eagles Friday, March 9. They’ll be doing battle again later this week in the state playoffs.
I shot the Iditarod this morning for the Associated Press. This photo was named one of their top photos for the day. So there’s that to be grateful for.
