It’s time for the Clarky Awards
The Kodiak Daily Mirror Clarky Awards started as a space filler in 2006. It is still a space filler eight years later. The award — created by the Daily Mirror’s lone sports writer — honors Kodiak’s athletic community over the past year. Only the best of the best have been given a Clarky. Some years certificates are handed out, other years recipients get nothing (hey, I’m working with no budget, so what do you expe...

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...
