Kodiak girls blanked in season opener
Kodiak’s girls soccer team was faced with the daunting task of starting the season against Soldotna, last season’s Northern Lights Conference runner-up and sixth-place finisher at the state tournament. And to boot, the Bears were shorthanded, having only 10 players in Saturday’s conference tilt. That all added up to a 14-0 loss to the Stars at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “The girls had great hustle, good spirit and...

Champs are back
For the fifth time in program history, the Kodiak boys’ track and field team begins the season as the defending 4A state champions. The previous four times never resulted in a repeat. Will that change this season? Senior Kordell Pillans believes it can. “Two out of the three track seasons that I have been here we have won state,” he said. “I’m hoping we can make it three out of the four times that I’m here.” Pilla...

Kodiak girls aim for first victory
Last season was so foreign to the Kodiak High School girls soccer team that they practiced everything, even walking through the playing of the national anthem. In year two, the players feel like seasoned veterans. “The biggest thing was that it was a new experience for them being in a league,” assistant coach Emma Marr said. “There is no fear factor for the girls now. I remember when we started last year we were p...

Pillans signs to play football at Mesa Community College
At an early age, Kordell Pillans was faced with the decision to play football or soccer. He picked football for one reason — a shorter season. “I was the definition of lazy,” Pillans said. Hard-working would be the adjective used to describe Pillans now. The Kodiak High School senior inked his National Letter of Intent to play football for Mesa Community College in Arizona at a signing ceremony last Friday at KHS....
