Elinore Millstein, the final piece left to Kodiak’s 2012 girls swimming and diving state championship team, will be making her final home appearance this weekend.

PREP PICKS: High school playoffs begin
The regular season is done. Starting today, 16 teams from around the state will fight for three state titles in the large, medium and small school divisions. Since I’m in the business of predictions, I’m going out on a limb and predicting Soldotna will claim the medium-school title. Shocker. You can take that one to the bank. Eielson is the frontrunner to raise the small-school state title, but you can’t overlook ...

Kodiak finishes season with 14-0 loss to Barrow
When Barrow’s Travis Adams first looked at the high school football schedule, he said he got excited about returning to Kodiak. A year ago, Adams got tackled in the end zone for a safety in Barrow’s 38-6 loss to Kodiak. What a difference a year makes. Adams, Barrow’s elusive sophomore quarterback, rushed for a game-high 160 yards and one touchdown in his team’s 14-0 victory over Kodiak Saturday at Joe Floyd Track ...
