Three sports open their home schedules

Both Juneau-Douglas High School and Thunder Mountain High School soccer play games against Service High School this weekend.

The weekend’s matches are big tests for both Juneau teams. Many think Service’s girls squad is the best in the state this year. They hold a 8-1 record which includes a 13-0 drubbing of Bartlett. SHS suffered their first loss last week to Dimond High School.

Service sports an impressive team on the boys side as well, anchored in the back line by senior Brady Graff, an Oregon State University prospect.

The TMHS girls play at 11:30 a.m. today at Thunder Mountain Field. The TMHS Boys play Service at 1:15 p.m. today at TM Field.

The JDHS girls face Service at 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday at Adair-Kennedy Field. The JDHS Boys play at 7:45 tonight and 10:45 a.m. Saturday at Adair Kennedy.

This weekend’s softball action includes conference home openers for both Thunder Mountain and Juneau-Douglas. The teams will also play in the Juneau Invitational Softball Tournament, a non-conference marathon of prep softball games taking place Saturday.

JDHS faces Ketchikan High School at 5 p.m. at Melvin Park Friday while TMHS faces Sitka High School at 7 p.m. at Dimond Park Friday; those games cap off a two-game series started Thursday.

The Juneau Invitational kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with the last game starting at 3:55 p.m. A full schedule can be found in the local sports calendar on page B2.

Thunder Mountain baseball plays two home games this weekend against Sitka High School at Adair-Kennedy with varsity games starting at 7 tonight and 4 p.m. Saturday.

Both Thunder Mountain and Juneau-Douglas track and field compete in an away meet at Sitka this weekend.
