Kodiak girls hoping for a strong showing at regions
Kodiak started the season with a youthful girls cross country team. Injuries have stunted the growth of the team this season, but coach Marcus Dunbar is looking for season-saving performances at Saturday’s Region III Championships at the Bear Valley Golf Course. “We haven’t really had a meet where I thought we ran at full strength … We are hoping this weekend might be it,” Dunbar said. Kodiak hasn’t been on top of...

Prep picks: Perfection
I’ve been so focused on the upcoming Region III Cross Country Championships that I almost forget about picking high school games this week. But have no fear, because I remembered at the very last minute. With hardly any time to spare this week, I didn’t have time to get Gizmo’s picks, but rest assured he will make an appearance before the season is over. I will tell you that Gizmo is starting to take over the Clar...

Kodiak football plays Friday night at Houston
Over the next two weeks Kodiak’s football team will feel right at home on the high seas. The team left on the ferry Wednesday night for its Friday evening game at Houston and will return on the ferry Saturday night. The stay on the island is a short one, as the team will again board the ferry on Aug. 1 for its final regular-season game on Oct. 2 at Voznesekna and return home shortly after. For those counting, that...

Running in Port Lions
Kodiak’s Michael Parnell really enjoyed his trip to Port Lions on Saturday. The junior cross country runner had a breakout performance in the first Kodiak Island Borough Championships. Parnell finished fourth with a career-best 5-kilometer time of 17 minutes, 14 seconds — 35 seconds faster than his previous-best time set last season. “I was trying to get a 17:30, but apparently the kilometer times were off so I th...

Kodiak’s Tahna and Talon Lindquist claimed SoHi Pentathlon titles Friday at Soldotna High School. Thana, a senior, won her third pentathlon title, while Talon, a freshman, grabbed his first.

Kodiak ties for fifth at West Spiketacular
Kodiak’s volleyball team tied for fifth at the West Spiketacular tournament Saturday in Anchorage. The Bears advanced to the gold bracket — the best of three brackets — and lost to South Anchorage, 25-14. 25-16 to bow out of the tournament, a tournament they finished second at last season. “We forced South to earn every point; we didn’t go easily,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said. Willis said only three of Kodiak’s 1...

Bears breakout against Barrow
Kodiak didn’t have much to celebrate in the first five weeks of the high school football season. The Bears had plenty to celebrate in Week 6. Kodiak let out its frustrations under sunny skies Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field with a 38-6 nonconference win over Barrow. “This game was a lot of good help for our team,” junior lineman Jake Yavorsky said. “Having a good win peaked people’s spirits up.” Yavorsky got...

Small stars as a kick returner
Jay-Ar Small is a man of few words. “He is a quiet kid,” Kodiak football coach Jim Schnick said. “I have known Jay-Ar for four years and I can’t get him to talk to me.” Small might not talk much, but that is OK with the coach, because his play does all the talking for him. Kodiak’s senior running back has been a bright spot on an uncharacteristic 1-4 season. “He is one of the hardest workers on the team, no questi...
