Kodiak ESS wins opener
For the past month, Damian Bennett has been Ouzinkie’s one-man basketball team. Practices consisted mostly of running. “It was just me and my village coach,” Bennett said. His endurance was on display in the Kodiak Emerging Small Schools’ season debut against Lumen Christi Thursday at Kodiak Middle School. The sophomore scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half to lead the Ravens to a 46-29 Peninsula Conferenc...

NLC RANKINGS: KHS girls hit the road to finish season
Talk about a rough way to end the season. Kodiak’s girls basketball team will finish the regular-season with 12 straight away games. Toss in conference tournament games and that number will climb even more. Might as well just leave the duffle bags packed. The Bears just might have the toughest schedule to end the season. I doubt any other team in Alaska is finishing with that many away games, which includes a voya...

She started again on Saturday, and again Kodiak beat Palmer, this time 43-25. Fabricante waited her entire career to start a v...

Kodiak’s Levi Fried is making up for lost time on the mat. The senior picked up his second tournament victory in as many weeks by taking the 132-pound Glen Vandergaw title Saturday at Dimond High School. Fried, a senior who didn’t wrestle last season, got a late start to the season because of postseason cross country races. He has knocked off the rust the past two weeks. Fried won a John Tobin Invitational last we...
