Kodiak baseball drops 2 to Kardinals
For the past three seasons, Kodiak baseball has owned the Southcentral Conference South Division with a 13-2 record against Kenai, Soldotna and Homer. The Bears have already been saddled with a pair of South Division losses in 2016. Kenai scored a 9-2 win over Kodiak on Friday and a 12-9 victory on Saturday, both contests played at Baranof Field.

Pitchers key to Kodiak's South Division success
Kodiak High School baseball coach James Arnold used only three words to sum up his team’s opening four-game home stand, “pitching, pitching and pitching.” The Bears used 10 pitchers in the Rex Edward Matautia Invitational Tournament, and for all but three — Sam Bennett, John Norton and Shaun Walton — it was their varsity debut on the bump.

KHS softball begins conference play
Typically, Kodiak High School’s softball team doesn’t open its home campaign until the final week of April or first week of May. That’s not the case this year, as the Bears begin their 2016 home campaign today and Saturday at East Addition Park against Kenai. The late starts are usually because of Kodiak’s weather, something that could play an impact in this weekend’s three-game series against the Kardinals. Accor...

Kodiak baseball stymied in conference opener
The past two seasons, as an assistant coach for Colony’s baseball team, Ken Ottinger knew just how tough Nolan Monaghan was. This season, the first-year skipper of Wasilla has Monaghan, a senior left-hander, in his dugout. “We have had that discussion,” Ottinger said. “I told him I didn’t like you last year, but now I love you.” Monaghan was at his best Friday, mowing down Kodiak, 12-0, in a Southcentral Conferenc...
