Kodiak track sweeps West Valley
With a little help from Mother Nature, Kodiak’s track and field team washed away West Valley. The rain and wind pounding Joe Floyd Track and Field Saturday morning depleted West Valley’s squad and made it easier for the Bears to record a 41-32 victory in the boys meet and a 60-13 triumph in the girls meet. “If there was a reward for toughing out the weather, we would win it today over West Valley,” Kodiak coach Ma...

Kodiak baseball drops 2 to Kardinals
For the past three seasons, Kodiak baseball has owned the Southcentral Conference South Division with a 13-2 record against Kenai, Soldotna and Homer.

Kenai tops Kodiak in softball marathon game
Scoring was not at a premium in Kodiak softball’s Northern Lights Conference opener against Kenai. In a game that lasted 3 hours, 40 minutes, the Kardinals outlasted the Bears, 36-27 in six innings, Friday at East Addition Park. Yes, you read that correctly, 36-27. “It was definitely a hitters’ game,” said first-year Kodiak skipper Michelle Stratton, who was making her home debut. More like it was a scorekeeper’s ...

Pitchers key to Kodiak's South Division success
Kodiak High School baseball coach James Arnold used only three words to sum up his team’s opening four-game home stand, “pitching, pitching and pitching.” The Bears used 10 pitchers in the Rex Edward Matautia Invitational Tournament, and for all but three — Sam Bennett, John Norton and Shaun Walton — it was their varsity debut on the bump. As expected for rookie hurlers, they had their ups and downs. The good thin...

KHS softball begins conference play
Typically, Kodiak High School’s softball team doesn’t open its home campaign until the final week of April or first week of May. That’s not the case this year, as the Bears begin their 2016 home campaign today and Saturday at East Addition Park against Kenai. The late starts are usually because of Kodiak’s weather, something that could play an impact in this weekend’s three-game series against the Kardinals. Accor...

The Kodiak High School senior signed a National Letter of Intent to run cross country and track at Black Hills State University, had a cupcake smeared on her face and was asked to prom. All that happened in a span of five minutes inside Kodiak High School’s athletic room — the latter two caught her off guard, especially the cupcake. “She (HoneyRose Macatuno) said ...

Pillans erases Kodiak track and field shot put record
With one smooth heave of the 12-pound shot put, Kordell Pillans erased the oldest standing record in Kodiak High School track and field history. Pillans’ second of three tosses during Saturday’s All-Comers Meet at Joe Floyd Track and Field landed 54 feet, 6 inches away from the circle, topping the old mark of 53-09.25, set by Floyd Galloway in 1973. “It was probably one of the easiest tosses for me that I have don...
