Kodiak football travels to Colony
A week after losing by 48 points to Kenai, Kodiak is now tasked with playing the second-ranked large-school team in the state. The Bears play at 2 p.m. Saturday against Colony in a nonconference game. “Colony has a great program, they have some great athletes and a lot of big kids. It is definitely a challenge,” Kodiak coach Jim Schnick said. “It would be a challenge for anybody … It is a game on the schedule and ...

Lindquist sparkles in debut
Talon Lindquist admitted he was nervous before his first high school swimming meet for Kodiak. He shouldn’t have been. The Bears’ nationally ranked freshman looked like a seasoned swimmer, squashing a pair of school records in a dual meet against Soldotna on Friday at the Kodiak Community Pool. Lindquist broke school records in the 100-yard backstroke and the 200 individual medley, and came close to breaking two m...

Ostrander sets new mark at Fort Abercrombie
The morning before every cross country meet, Kenai’s Allie Ostrander eats a bowl of Wheaties. For extra flavor, she adds a banana. “Probably any old cereal would do, but I like the box. It says ‘breakfast of champions’ — it puts me in the race zone,” she said. Ostrander must have had an extra bowl of Wheaties Friday morning, because she was locked in as she zoomed through Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park at ...

Kodiak stumbles at Kenai
Kodiak’s chances at qualifying for the medium-school football playoffs dwindled Saturday on the Kenai Peninsula. Kenai routed Kodiak, 56-8, in an important Northern Lights Conference game at Ed Hollier Field. The loss dropped the Bears to 1-1 in the NLC (1-2 overall) and made it harder for Kodiak to advance to the postseason for the third consecutive season. Kodiak is not eliminated, but will most likely have to b...

Thomet and Ostrander aiming to break course records
A pair of records could be in jeopardy tonight in a highly-anticipated high school cross country meet at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park.

Pigskin picks: Madden 15 keeps football fans occupied
For football fans, Tuesday was a holiday with the release of Madden 15. I picked up my copy before work and stared at coverboy Richard Sherman the entire day — not much work got done that day. Since a Seahawk graced the cover, I thought about leaving the game in the package, but I thought better of it and ripped off the plastic and stuck the disc into the Xbox as soon as I got home from work. I was not disappointe...
