Kodiak hoops heads to Fairbanks
Kodiak will get a chance to defend its boys basketball title at the Joe T. Classic Tournament at Lathrop High School. It’s rare for an Alaska team to attend the same tournament in consecutive seasons, but Kodiak didn’t get into last week’s Dimond Prep Shootout, which sets the Bears up for a return trip to Fairbanks. “They wanted us back up there and invited us,” Kodiak coach David Anderson said. The three-day tour...

And by thumping, I mean thumping. The Rams are 8-0, with seven of those victories against 4A schools. No team has even come close to knocking off Monroe.

Four teams invade Kodiak for Robin Hervey Tournament
Kodiak’s wrestling team should have considered changing its nickname to the Road Bears. When the team’s schedule was released in November, the Bears had two home dates but no teams to fill them. The first home event — Dec. 20-21 — was canceled because the team couldn’t find a school willing to commit. Kodiak’s coaching staff went to work after that trying to prevent another lost opportunity. “I wasn’t worried; I w...
