Petersburg boys take 4th, girls take 6th in Valdez

The Petersburg boys took fourth place at the Elks Invitational Basketball Tournament in Valdez over the weekend after a loss at the buzzer against the Hutchison Hawks 55 to 53 Saturday night.

It was an exciting start for the Vikings earlier in the week. They defeated the four-time defending Elks tournament Champion Barrow whalers 44 to 41 in overtime Thursday afternoon. They lost to Valdez 62 to 57 Friday.

Meanwhile, The Lady Vikings finished with a win to take sixth place in the tourney. In their final game Saturday morning, the Petersburg girls beat Cordova 38 to 24.

On Friday, the Lady Vikings narrowly lost a nail-biter against Glennallen. The Lady Panthers came from behind to beat Petersburg 38 to 35. Petersburg lost to the top-ranked Anchorage Christian School Lady Lions in their first game 70 to 39 on Thursday.

Petersburg hosts Wrangell next weekend for homecoming.
