Top sports stories of 2014
Narrowing down Kodiak’s top sports stories of 2014 was no easy task.

That is just at the local level. Kodiak had many other athletes shine at the national level — it’s strange that such a small island produces so much talent, bu...

Wasilla tops first NLC hoops power rankings
There will be no perfect basketball team in Kodiak this season. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty to cheer about. Did you really expect another perfect season? Those only come around once a decade. The girls probably surprised many by starting the season with two straight wins and increasing the program’s win streak to 31 games — a remarkable feat by any team. They not only won two games, but won them co...
