I-5 for the week of February 18th-24th

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Now it's time for a look at the top plays of the week with the I5.
We're going to start this week off with some Nanook basketball. The scoring leader in Thursday's game against Simon Fraser, Tymoryae Glover collects a long pass and hesitates under the basket, sending the defender flying over him. Glover then follows it up with a two handed jam.
We're going to stay on the hardwood, but at the high school level for the next play. In their conference win over Eielson, Monroe Catholic's Isaac Garcia drives down the baseline and crosses up an Eielson defender. He then driveds the opposite direction and drains the shot. Garcia would finish the night with 28 points and a standing ovation in Boileau Hall.
Next up is Kendall Kramer's dominant performance in the State Skiing Championships. The West Valley Skier won the classic race on Thursday with a 15 minute, 28 second time, outpacing the next finisher by nearly a minute and a half. She then won Friday's Freestyle
Mass Start in 23 minutes and 37 seconds, nearly a minute ahead of anyone else. Kramer was named this year's Skimeister title thanks to these incredible efforts.
Next up is Nanook Junior Troy Van Tetering, who scored the only goal of Saturday's game against the #4 ranked Minnesota State Mavericks. After the goaltender follows Tyler Cline to his right, a door is left wide open for TVT to dump this one in and light the lamp for the Nanooks. This would prove to be the only goal that the Nanooks needed to stun the WCHA regular season champions, in their final home game of the season.
And number one for this week belongs to the back-to-back Iron Dog Champions. Mike Morgan and Chris Olds won this year's 2,000 mile snowmachine race six days after leaving the leaving the start in Big Lake. This is the second consecutive win as a team for these two. It was the second overall win for Morgan, and the fourth for Olds.
