KHS soccer prepares to host Nikiski
Losing two matches by a combined score of 29-0 would cause some people to throw in the towel, but not the players on Kodiak’s girls soccer team. They used it as a learning experience. “It was something interesting and new. We have a bunch of room for growth, but overall I think we did good for our first games,” junior captain Jie Canete said. Call it an education in varsity soccer for a first-year program. Kenai, ...

Kodiak blows past West Valley
Brandan Pickett entered Saturday’s contest against West Valley with only four innings pitched in his entire Kodiak baseball career.

Kodiak swept the two-game series — Friday’s game was washed out because of wind and rain — and improve...

Barcelon, Thomet grab Pentathlon titles
Who knew Levi Thomet could high jump? The nationally ranked distance runner showed his diversity on the track in claiming his second straight Invincible Pentathlon boys title on a blustery and rainy Friday at Joe Floyd Track and Field.

Teeing Off: Soccer certainly isn’t cricket
I was going to devote this space to how awesome the Mariners are, but somewhere along the way they didn’t get the message and have stumbled out of the gate. So instead, let’s talk about that six-letter curse word that starts with the letter S … Soccer. It’s been well documented over the years, so it isn’t a surprise to you that I don’t have a soft spot in my heart for soccer. Soccer to me is like trying to learn a...

KHS baseball downs West Valley 14-6
Hours before Kodiak’s game against West Valley, Baranof Field was covered in snow and the chances of baseball being played Thursday was slim to none. “I got to school and everything was snowy and it kind of carried out throughout the day,” senior catcher Josiah Chya said. “Then I heard the team wasn’t going to come in and I was kind of bummed out that we weren’t going to play a ballgame today.” The morning storm c...

KHS track explodes into the season
Kodiak High’s boys track team exploded out of the gates in its season opener. Had team scores been kept at last week’s Big C Relays, the Bears easily would have stood atop the standings. “Now that the rest of the teams have seen us they are going to be working hard to try to improve,” coach Marcus Dunbar said. “I think everybody knows Kodiak has a good team.” Dunbar said it was the best his squad has started a sea...

Baseball entertains West Valley
By Saturday afternoon James Arnold is hoping his team will not be a chapter in Kodiak baseball history. After starting the season with four straight losses, the Bears sit three losses away from the worst start in program history as they welcome West Valley to the island for a three-game series starting at 5 p.m. today. “As soon as we get a victory, I think we will break the fever and continue to have fun and be su...

Kodiak finishes winless in inaugural tournament
Standing in the cold and layered in Kodiak High School baseball apparel, coach James Arnold watched as South Anchorage and Chugiak played for the inaugural Rex Edward Matautia Invitational Tournament title. Every so often he engaged with one of his coaches, or a fan, about his team — a squad that lost all four of its games in the four-day, season-opening tournament at Baranof Field. Arnold, in his third-year, wasn...
