Kodiak’s Talon Lindquist takes out 22-year-old school record
One school record has eluded John Lindquist during his 16 years as Kodiak High’s swim coach — the boys’ 100-yard breaststroke. He has had swimmers come close to Ben Millard’s 1994 mark of 59.89 seconds, but none have topped the 22-year-old standard that was set in a preliminary heat at the state championship meet. That was until Friday. In an electrifying atmosphere inside the Kodiak Community Swimming Pool, Talon...

Palmer hands Kodiak first loss of season
Rod Christiansen has coached Palmer’s varsity football team for 26 years. Friday was his first game in Kodiak. The longtime Mat-Su Valley coach made sure the inaugural voyage was special. The Moose used a pair of successful third-quarter onside kicks to hand Kodiak its first loss of the season, 35-18 in a Northern Lights Conference affair at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “I told them that games have been won by this ...

Defense powers Kodiak to 3-0 start
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. Now Watkins is in charge of a defense that has Kodiak at 3-0 and ranked third in the medium-small sc...

Bersin has a day at Bartlett meet
Marcus Dunbar double-checked last week’s Bartlett State Preview Meet results when he saw his boys’ team was listed in 10th place. Who could blame him? It was an unfamiliar place for Kodiak, one of the state’s best cross country programs over the last 14 years. “I’m still kind of scratching my head on what is going on with the boys,” said Dunbar Wednesday afternoon. “I’m hoping it was a one-week kind of fluke deal ...

Pigskin Picks: Aiming to rebound after Week 3
I must have made the football gods mad. After sporting a sparkling Week 2 record, I came back down to earth with an 8-5 mark in Week 3. Simply unacceptable. Last week’s lackluster performance dropped my overall record to 30-11, for a .731 win percentage. One neat thing did happen last week — Eagle River, a second-year member of the Northern Lights Conference, won its first game in three years. If you remember, I p...
