Soldotna increases win streak to 24 with victory over Kodiak
Kodiak’s football team can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Bears completed a difficult three-week schedule on Saturday with a 48-0 Northern Lights Conference loss to top-ranked Soldotna at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The past three weeks have not been easy for Kodiak, as the team lost to NLC power Kenai, second-ranked large-school Colony and Soldotna by a combined score of 141-8. The Bears emerged from that w...

Bears look to end skid against Stars
One team is playing its first Northern Lights Conference game of the season, while the other team is playing its last. Talk about an unbalanced schedule. That is the scenario Saturday when Kodiak’s football team finishes NLC play by hosting top-ranked Soldotna — playing in its first NLC game — at 2 p.m. at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “I’m not happy about a lot of things with how the schedule was put together, but y...

Prep picks: Picking is for the dogs
I’m about ready to give this space to my dog Gizmo — he might actually do better at picking high school football games than me. Gizmo is a 3-year-old Japanese Chin who sits at home all day watching sports. Some days I leave the television on the MLB Network, while other days I spoil him with ESPN. On the ESPN days he greets me at the door with a doggie toy in his mouth. He hasn’t quite got the concept of football,...

KHS volleyball opens home season tonight
Amy Willis is hoping to pack the Kodiak High School gymnasium when her volleyball team opens its 2014 home season tonight and Saturday against Kenai.

McKinney rises to the varsity level
Richie McKinney has come a long way since his first high school cross country meet in 2012. On that day, he lumbered through the 5-kilometer Nikiski Class Race course in a slumbering time of 28 minutes, 6 seconds. “I was the slowest person on the team,” said McKinney, now a junior. Well, he wasn’t exactly the slowest that day; he did beat two of his teammates. To McKinney’s credit, he trudged through the season an...

Kodiak’s Talon Lindquist did it again. A week after breaking a pair of school records in his inaugural high school meet, Kodiak’s freshman swimmer broke another record over the weekend at the Homer Invitational.
