Five local flag football players were named first-team all Cook Inlet Conference by a vote of the CIC’s coaches.

Making the team for Chugiak were senior linebacker Mariah Perish and senior rusher Marelie Chaperon, along with junior running back Kaylin Garner.

Eagle River senior running back Spring Harris and junior linebacker Haley Stephenson made the first-team for the Wolves.

Chugiak’s Chasity Horn, Aleah Madsen and Brooke Storen — along with Eagle River’s Sarah Trischler and Sara Torkelson — were named to the second-team; Chugiak’s Makenzi Ditzler, Averie Carlos and Ally Gates, as well as Eagle River’s Brooklyn Peters, Aubrey Roberts and Felicity Helton named honorable mention.

Mustangs, Wolves out of playoffs

Chugiak opened the CIC playoffs with a 26-0 loss Tuesday night to Service in the opening round at Service High. The fifth-seeded Mustangs finished 6-9.

Eagle River’s season came to an end with a forfeit to West in the first round of the playoffs. Principal Tim Helvey said low team numbers compounded by injuries and illness meant the Wolves were only able to field six players — flag football games are seven a side. The Wolves finished 0-15.
