Kodiak ESS hoops finishes season

ESS finished its season with a 2-10 record. “It was a good season,” Elvehjem said. “It was a learning season. I didn’t expect to win th...

When the jersey number became available after Horn graduated in 2014, Fangonilo, then a junior, didn’t hesitate in changing numbers. “My sophomore year, I was like, ‘Adriane Horn is so good at threes that I want to get her jersey next year,”’ said Fangonilo.

Sabado rewarded for staying in program
With 4 minutes, 10 seconds remaining in Friday’s boys basketball game against Palmer, Kodiak’s Juwan Sabado hit a floater in the lane. To the normal observer it was just a bucket that trimmed Palmer’s to 14 points. It meant more than that to Sabado.
