Kodiak’s girls basketball team will spend three days in the capital city beginning today. The Bears play today and Saturday against Thunder Mountain and Friday against Juneau-Douglas. “It is just another opportunity for the girls to get experience playing in big games,” Kodiak coach Hicks said. “Thunder Mountain is tough and Juneau is good, too.

NLC Power Rankings: Kodiak’s boys are a tale of two teams
A trend is starting to appear for the Kodiak boys basketball team. The Bears play well in the front end of weekend doubleheaders, but fall flat in the nightcap. Kodiak played Colony tough in a loss and beat Kenai and Soldotna in Friday Northern Lights Conference games, but lost to all three on Saturday by a combined 50 points. What is going on? “I think it is part of conditioning. I’m playing these guys a lot of m...

A victory for Red
Before the start of Friday’s game against Soldotna, Kodiak boys basketball coach David Anderson had just one message for his team: “We are going to win this one for Red.” Red West was smiling from above. Playing for the first time since the death of their former assistant coach, the Bears won an exciting Northern Lights Conference matchup, 49-44, at Kodiak High.

Remembering Red: Kodiak hoops coach dies of cancer
Red West was easy to pick out of a crowd. He was the middle-aged guy nestled on the Kodiak High School boys’ basketball sideline with a face full of — you guessed it — red facial hair. Beyond the bristly look, West was one of the boys. He cheered when an unbelievable play was made, told jokes and stories, and hung out just like high school boys would. He cherished every moment he spent with the team, and the boys ...
