Glennallen High School.

The mid-March Class 2A basketball tournament in Anchorage saw a clean sweep by Glennallen's High School basketball teams this season.

The Panther Girls beat the Metlakatla Girls, 51-39 at the new Alaska Airlines Center. It was a decisive -- and historic -- victory. Big winners for the girls were Sierra Virgin, with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals. She was closely followed by Tamra Jones, with 17 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals.

The Panther Boys were evenly matched with the Dillingham Wolverines. At first, it looked like they might not win, but then, in the second half, Glennallen pushed its way past the Wolverines, beating them 38 to 35 -- and recapturing the top team title that Glennallen also won last year. Great plays by Camero Peters, with 10 rebounds and Jordan Sondergaard, with 13 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals led to the victory.

The Panther Girls are coached by Jim Lorence. The Panther Boys are coached by James Fields.
