7 KHS wrestlers enter 4A boys state tournament
Hunter Bigley is not much of a talker. However, he doesn’t hide his feelings about running. “I hate running,” the Kodiak High School senior said. “It definitely would not be a hobby.” That is something his twin sister, Zoe, would never say. She is the top girls runner at KHS, having qualified for four cross country and three track and field state championships. So much for twins being alike. “She is a good runner ...

Kodiak girls return three full-time players from last year’s 14-10 squad
At the end of a practice last week, members of Kodiak High School’s girls basketball team gathered at one end of the court and sang while a coach recorded on their phone. The music session, which probably would have not impressed the judges on “The Voice,” ended with laughter. “They are a bunch of goofballs,” second-year coach Krista Hicks said. “They just have really great personalities.” Hicks had a successful f...
