Kodiak baseball falls to Houston
Baserunning errors proved costly for Kodiak on Wednesday against Houston. The Bears had four runners thrown out on the base paths — one at home — in a rare 6-5 Southcentral Conference baseball loss to the Hawks at Houston. “I don’t want to say one thing cost us the game,” Kodiak coach James Arnold said. “We win and lose as a team.” The loss snapped Kodiak’s two-game winning streak and dropped the Bears to 2-1 in t...

Kodiak track washes away Seward High
An hour before Friday’s track meet against Seward, Kodiak’s Levi Fried called teammate Levi Thomet and asked him to scrounge up a pair of goggles. The conditions outside were perfect — tornado-like gusts and pelting rain — to recreate a past Kodiak sports moment. The current Kodiak duo donned the goggles during their 1,600-meter race, just like Cory Pena did in similar conditions in a home meet against Bartlett in...

Kodiak rains on Putney's coaching debut
Kodiak Island welcomed back a baseball legend the only way it knew how to with wind, rain and toe-numbing coldness. The conditions made Mark Putney’s debut as Homer’s head coach a memorable one, but for all the wrong reasons. Behind a pitching gem from Jakob Arnold and a three-hit performance from Austin Frick, Kodiak handed Homer a 17-0 four-inning Southcentral Conference loss Friday at a rain-soaked Baranof Fiel...

Kodiak bodybuilder a hit at NPC Champs
Born in El Salvador and raised in Kodiak, Sonia Cortez never thought she would find herself in a little bikini on a stage in front of hundreds of people.  That is where she found herself last Saturday, competing in the National Physique Committee State Bodybuilding Championships in Anchorage.  It might be understated to say she was rattled.  “I was pretty nervous; I had no idea what I was doing,” said Cortez, a 20...
