Ketchikan slams door on Kodiak’s season

Coach, players sport Mohawks for state baseball tournament
At Kodiak’s final home baseball practice of the season on Tuesday, coach James Arnold wore a faded blue cap on his head. Not unusual. What was unusual was underneath the cap. The third-year coach sported a blue Mohawk with zigzag designs on both sides of his head — a far cry from what he became accustomed to from his time in the Coast Guard. Needless to say, Arnold was second-guessing his decision to let his playe...

Jakob Arnold to play for Flagler College next season
A mother doesn’t always know best. Kris Arnold wanted her son, Jakob, to be a catcher. She liked how he threw the ball to second. It’s a good thing Jakob didn’t listen to his mother as the Kodiak High School senior has found a niche throwing in another direction — to home plate. On Monday, under the bright blue sky and sitting at a table in front of the pitching mound at Baranof Field, Jakob Arnold inked a nationa...

Havoc MMA debuts in Kodiak
Jeff Miranda trained four months for his debut in mixed martial arts fighting. His match lasted less than 10 seconds. Miranda connected on a powerful overhand right that knocked out Brandon Steele seconds after the opening bell. Steele fell, Miranda raised both arms and the estimated 700 people in attendance inside the Kodiak Island Fairgrounds pavilion went wild. That was the shortest of seven fights during the i...

Baseball faces Chugiak
Kodiak baseball will open the state baseball tournament against a familiar foe — Chugiak. The two teams have played each other four times over the last two seasons, and that number doubles when you count last summer’s American Legion season. The Mustangs, the Cook Inlet Conference champions, won this year’s only battle against Kodiak, a 7-0 decision on the second day of the Rex Edward Matautia Invitational Basebal...
