The Seward Seahawks and Nome-Beltz High School Lady Nanooks took to the floor for two days of games Dec. 15 and Dec. 16 at the Seward High School gym. Seward will face Homer on Dec. 22.

Jonah Deboard and Hunter Kratz lit up the scoreboard early and often this past weekend and helped the Seward High School Seahawks open the 2016-17 basketball season on a high note. Both scored into double figures and powered Seward to a win over the Nome-Beltz Nanooks in a non-conference showdown on Thursday.

The Seward Seahawks opened their 2016-17 season this past week with a split of their home series with the Nome-Beltz Nanooks.

Seward used a consistent offensive push to begin off their weekend series with Nome-Beltz. The Seahawks scored 15 points in each of the first three quarters of play and cruised to a comfortable 58-44 decision.

In the win, Deboard starred for the Seahawks by throwing in a game-high 22 points. Kratz also came up big for SHS, netting 15 points - nine of which came via three 3-point shots.

Zen Petrosius almost hit double figures in the 14-point victory. He tallied nine.

Nome rallied back on Friday to take a 53-51 decision.

In girls action, the Lady Seahawks also earned a split. The SHS girls rallied from a tough loss in the opener to salvage a split with a 57-46 victory on Friday.

Nome won the opener by a 58-48 margin despite a stellar performance from Ayla Lapinskas, who pumped in a game-high 26 points.
