The only loss was against Service (60-55) in the championship game of the Doc Larson Roundball Classic. However, Barrow is probably not t...

Fangonilo is no joke on the court
If Kristhel Fangonilo made a New Year’s resolution, it would have probably been to pull more pranks on her teammates and coaches. Fangonilo certainly piled up the jokes in 2014, enough to have every member on the Kodiak girls’ basketball team on guard when she is around. “She is a little prankster,” Kodiak assistant coach Sandra Gregory said. “She likes to think that she is really good at it. I think she is still ...

Top sports stories of 2014
Narrowing down Kodiak’s top sports stories of 2014 was no easy task. Kodiak High School had one of its most successful athletic years ever, with cross-country and girls basketball winning state team titles, and numerous individuals shining on the big stage.
