Two teams have been crowned Alaska School Activites Association (ASAA) March Madness state basketball champions at the 1A level, and two at the 2A level. 

Led by 1A girls player of the year Kiah Charlie, the Scammon Bay Eagles topped the Selawik Wolves 71 to 35, securing a perfect season and back-to-back state championships.  Charlie led Scammon Bay with a game high 22 points, as well as 6 assists.

The boys 1A state championship was also successfully defended, as the Ninilchik Wolverines beat the Gambell King Polar Bears 79 to 39. University of Alaska Anchorage’s men’s basketball commit Austin White racked 23 points and 14 rebounds, while Dalton Geppert led the Wolverines with 24 points.

The 2A state championships rounded out a full day of ASAA March Madness at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage. After finishing runner-up last year, the Bristol Bay Angels captured the 2A girls state championship with a 40 to 34 win over the Nenana Lynx. The Angels’ Sharon Hanson led all scorers with 13 points in the win.

The 2A boys state crown went to the Petersburg Vikings, which topped the Metlakatla Chiefs 46 to 26.  Petersburg was led by Stewart Conn with a game-high 15 points, while Wolf Brooks ripped down 10 rebounds.
