Prep Picks: Racking up the victories
While I have been spotty in picking NFL games, I have been nearly spot on in the high school ranks. I cashed out last week with a 12-3 record, which upped my overall mark to an outstanding 61-23 (.726). With only two weeks remaining the regular season, lots of teams are jockeying for playoff position. Should make for some good action in Week 7. Wasilla (2-4) at Chugiak (3-3) — Chugiak is coming off its biggest win...

Streaks end in final home cross country meet
Two things happened Friday at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park that hasn’t happened in years — a victory by a Kodiak girl and a loss by a Kodiak boy. Honey Rose Macatuno gave the Kodiak girls their first home cross country victory since 2010 when she crossed the finish line 17 seconds ahead of Anchorage Christian’s Tessa O’Hara. Less than an hour later, Anchorage Christian’s Blake Bennett held off Kodiak’s K...

Soldotna ups winning streak to 45 games with 42-0 win over Kodiak
Midway through the third quarter, Kodiak’s Kaleb Finley danced off the field and yelled to his defensive coordinator, “That is another stop.” The Bears’ defense did an admirable job against high-powered Soldotna, but it wasn’t enough as Kodiak fell 42-0 in a Northern Lights Conference football game Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The Stars, which were stopped twice on fourth downs and forced to punt twice, ...

Kodiak netters earn 2 victories
All Kodiak volleyball needed was a trip to Southeast Alaska to right the ship. The Bears swept Sitka and Mt. Edgecumbe on Friday and finished its first trip to Sitka since 2013 with a perfect 4-0 record. Kodiak upped its season record to 4-6. A day after needing five sets to dispose of Mt. Edgecumbe, the Bears earned a 26-24, 25-9, 25-23 victory over the 3A school. Senior Ryana Recustodio powered down nine kills a...

Saving Maya: Fire departments rescue dog on Labor Day
Disclaimer: This is not a sports column, but one that all animal lovers will like. I’m a sucker for dog stories. While doing my nightly scroll of Facebook, I came across a post that caught my attention, and Gizmo’s and Pepper Jack’s, too. It read: “Big shout out to my girl Betsy and all the firefighters and friends that came out today to help rescue my dog, Maya. She ran down part of a cliff and fell the rest of t...

Kodiak football faces Soldotna
A few weeks ago, Kodiak football coach Bill McGuire was rooting for Soldotna to beat East Anchorage. Kind of odd, considering Kodiak and Soldotna play in the same conference, but the second-year coach got his wish when the Stars punched in a late-game two-point conversion to win 22-21. The Kenai-Peninsula powerhouse added a win against Palmer last week and heads to the island riding a state-best 44-game winning st...

PIGSKIN PICKS: Almost a perfect week
Last week, I told you about the Ketchikan football team walking off the field in a game against Thunder Mountain. Well, that cost the school $500 and a one-year probation, the Alaska Dispatch News reported. The penalties are based on the Alaska School Activities Association polices. Ketchikan forfeited its game against Thunder Mountain two weeks ago because the coach thought the Falcons were being too physical. Tw...
