We ...

But when the gun goes off, it’s easy to find Macatuno, and it’s not because of her bright yellow jersey. The Kodiak High School senior cross country runner is having a breakout season, running up front in nearly every meet. “She has a Mercedes engine, but a Mini Cooper body,” longtime Kodiak...

Prep Picks: Unusual forfeit highlights Week 4 action

Coach’s orders. Turns out the Falcons were playing too rough. In 19 minutes, two Kings were taken to the hospital, while two others were injured. “We walked off that football field for the safety of our players,” Ketchikan...

One school record has eluded John Lindquist during his 16 years as Kodiak High’s swim coach — the boys’ 100-yard breaststroke.

That was until Friday. In an electrifying atmosphere inside the Kodiak Community Swimming Pool, Talon...

Ben Watkins knows a thing or two about good defenses. He was on one a decade ago. In 2006, Kodiak pitched five shutouts and allowed only 7.9 points per game. The unit was dominating in racking up a program-best 8-2 record — both losses coming to Soldotna, 14-13 and 29-20 in the small-school state championship game.
