The Nikiski Bulldogs are Small Schools State Champions for the second time in three years.  Nikiski beat Monroe 36-28 Saturday to claim the crown.  Michael Stagel put the Bulldogs up one in the fourth quarter on a on yard touchdown run to make it 29-28.  Stagel had a pair of touchdowns in this game along with a pair of interceptions defensively.  Jesse Eide added a little insurance with his own fourth quarter touchdown, a five yard run that gave the Bulldogs that 36-28 advantage.
