A fast day at Run the Rock
For Anthony Saucier, Saturday’s KMXT-FM Run the Rock marathon was more than a sprint than a long-distance race. The ultra-marathon veteran used the shorter race to his advantage and owned the 26.2-mile course on a brilliant sunshiny October day in Kodiak. Saucier pulverized the course record with a time of 3 hours, 10 minutes, 2 seconds — 23:42 better than Neil McCarthy’s 2013 record. “I wasn’t trying,” Saucier sa...

Senior Blake James broke a Ben Millard record Friday evening. It just wasn’t the record he thought he would break.

Prep picks: Playoff edition
It’s playoff time for high school football teams in Alaska. The eight-week regular season was a blur for me, as I posted my worst season in the history of picking games. I went 7-1 last week — my lone miss was Colony topping North Pole, 20-19. I ended the regular season with a 51-15 record that improved my winning percentage to .833. Gizmo’s debut of picking NFL games was just as bad, going 1-2. But like a true co...

Senior Blake James chasing breaststroke record
The last thing Blake James sees before he closes his eyes for the night are the numbers 5989. Those numbers represent the Kodiak High School boys’ 100-yard breaststroke record of 59.89 seconds set by Ben Millard in 2004, one of four records from that season still standing in the history books. James has a month left to reel in Millard, something he has been dreaming about since he entered high school four years ag...
