That wasn’t the case when the opening softball weekend ended Saturday at East Addition Field. “What I’m most pleased about is how the girls handled themselves,” fifth-year coach Sam Catt said. “It is hard to come out here and take a whooping and still be up in spirits,...

Catt enters final softball season
When Sam Catt took over Kodiak High School’s softball program in 2011 he didn’t know what he was getting into. After all, he was a baseball guy. He has since transformed into a softball guy, and is now entering his fifth and final season as Kodiak’s coach. “When Dave Allen asked me to come do this, I was happy, but kind of scared,” said Catt, who is planning to move to Arizona next September. “I had never coached ...

He walked off the field five pitches later flashing his pearly whites and the game still knotted at 2. Martinez’s Houdini act proved to be the pivotal point in Kodiak’s 8-5 Southcentral Conference baseball victory over Soldotna on Friday at Baranof...
