Ninilchik boys top Nikolaevsk for state title

Every one of the eight state championship basketball banners that hang in the Ninilchik School gymnasium were earned by the school’s girls squads.

Scooch over a bit, Dan Leman. Another banner is about to join you.

The Ninilchik boys claimed their first ever state crown Saturday with a thrilling 41-37 overtime win over fellow Peninsula Conference rivals Nikolaevsk in the Class 1A title game at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage.

The Wolverines dug deep to rally from an early 13-point deficit to force overtime, where they outscored the Warriors 4-0.
