Episode 16 – High School Travel

Basketball tournament in a World War II- era airplane hangar? Yep. The home floor for Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka. It’s just the type of thing Alaskan athletes call normal. 

Yeah, we do play sports in Alaska, what is travel like when you can’t take a bus? Planes, boats, weather, delays, staying in the home of a rival player. I talk about a 2-week road trip for 6 games I took in high school and ending up in Seattle last year as a coach because turbulence was too bad for our Alaska Airlines jet to land in Ketchikan. Just part of being an athlete or coach in Southeast Alaska.
