Soldotna raised Alaska’s Medium School state championship trophy again on Saturday.  The Stars beat Kenai Central 33-18 for the school’s fourth straight championship.

The victory was very emotional for the Stars’ star running back Drew Gibbs, who missed all but the first quarter of the first game of the season with a torn ACL.  Gibbs, who along with his father Trey have written a blog for High School Football America called A Family Affair, got to play one last play in his high school career.

Soldotna’s state record win streak now stands at 39 straight.
