Osowski conquers; Kodiak boys win 15th in a row
One of the first things that Keith Osowski did after winning his first cross country regional individual title was call his brother. He couldn’t resist. See, his brother, James Osowski, won a regional title on Tsalteshi Trails — nearly the exact course Keith ran on on Saturday — in 2010. “I had a faster time and the same place. I finally have bragging rights over my brother,” Keith said. Keith, who was last year’s...

Kodiak boys XC looking for 15th straight regional title
Soldotna football’s gigantic 45-game win streak has garnered a lot of statewide attention, and rightfully so. It is impressive. For those not connected with the running world, there is also a pretty good streak here on the island. One that could be deemed equally as impressive as Soldotna’s. The Kodiak boys cross country team has won 14 consecutive Region III titles and are going for No. 15 Saturday at Tsalteshi T...

With only two weeks remaining the regular season, lots of teams are jockeying for playoff position. Should make for some good action in Week 7. Wasilla (2-4) at Chugiak (3-3) — Chugiak is coming off its biggest win...
