Kodiak runners compete in Anchorage meet today
The long layoff for Kodiak’s cross country team will come to an end today. The Bears are competing in the New Balance Urban XC Classic today on the Park Strip in Anchorage. The race was added to the schedule after inclement weather kept Kodiak from flying to last Saturday’s Seward Invitational. Today’s meet — a 3-kilometer race — will be Kodiak’s first since the Kodiak Invitational on Aug. 29. Kodiak coach Marcus ...

Soldotna, Bartlett remain on top
Soldotna flexed its muscle over Kodiak on Saturday and kept its top spot in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network’s high school football poll. The Stars defeated the Bears, 48-0, for their 24th straight victory and remained No. 1 in the medium-small school rankings. Soldotna coach Galen Brantley Jr. was glad to get the win after his team endured a long and rocky ferry ride to Kodiak. It was the Stars’ first North...

Kodiak swimming displays its depth against Homer
Not too long ago Kodiak and Homer battled in the pool for Region III supremacy. That hasn’t been the case lately, and it was never more apparent that the two programs have gone in different directions than this weekend when they met for a pair of dual meets at the Kodiak Community Pool. Using its depth and talent, Kodiak blitzed Homer. On Friday, the boys won 189-80, while the girls grabbed a 171-46 victory. On Sa...

Soldotna increases win streak to 24 with victory over Kodiak
Kodiak’s football team can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Bears completed a difficult three-week schedule on Saturday with a 48-0 Northern Lights Conference loss to top-ranked Soldotna at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The past three weeks have not been easy for Kodiak, as the team lost to NLC power Kenai, second-ranked large-school Colony and Soldotna by a combined score of 141-8. The Bears emerged from that w...

Bears look to end skid against Stars
One team is playing its first Northern Lights Conference game of the season, while the other team is playing its last. Talk about an unbalanced schedule. That is the scenario Saturday when Kodiak’s football team finishes NLC play by hosting top-ranked Soldotna — playing in its first NLC game — at 2 p.m. at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “I’m not happy about a lot of things with how the schedule was put together, but y...

Prep picks: Picking is for the dogs
I’m about ready to give this space to my dog Gizmo — he might actually do better at picking high school football games than me. Gizmo is a 3-year-old Japanese Chin who sits at home all day watching sports. Some days I leave the television on the MLB Network, while other days I spoil him with ESPN. On the ESPN days he greets me at the door with a doggie toy in his mouth. He hasn’t quite got the concept of football,...

KHS volleyball opens home season tonight
Amy Willis is hoping to pack the Kodiak High School gymnasium when her volleyball team opens its 2014 home season tonight and Saturday against Kenai. The new gym has a seating capacity of 500 people, which is less when you factor in nearly 60 volleyball players in attendance. “If those 440 people want to sit, they better come early,” Willis said. “I would love to pack that gym — I don’t know what we would have to ...

McKinney rises to the varsity level
Richie McKinney has come a long way since his first high school cross country meet in 2012. On that day, he lumbered through the 5-kilometer Nikiski Class Race course in a slumbering time of 28 minutes, 6 seconds. “I was the slowest person on the team,” said McKinney, now a junior. Well, he wasn’t exactly the slowest that day; he did beat two of his teammates. To McKinney’s credit, he trudged through the season an...
