Description

The game appeared to be over.

On this night, exactly a week until the Region V 4A Volleyball Championships begin in Ketchikan, Thunder Mountain High School didn’t seem to have it against Juneau-Douglas in the Crimson Bears’ lair.

In a 9-3 hole at the beginning of third set, TMHS looked headed to a three-set sweep in JDHS’ favor.

“We lost the first two (sets) so it was kinda like, ‘Why even play?,’” TMHS senior Mary Landes said.“But then we kinda just thought about it like, ‘We’ve done this twice where we were down, so we can do it, we know what we’re capable of.”
