KHS baseball travels to the Valley
Over the next three days Kodiak baseball will play the top two teams in the Southcentral Conference North Division. Having already claimed the South Division title, Kodiak coach James Arnold is still looking to make a statement against Wasilla and Colony, two teams that have a combined conference record of 15-2. “We are going to compete with them. I think that we can send a message to let them know just how good t...

Softball entertains Dimond
After traveling the past two weeks, Kodiak’s softball team finishes the regular season at home. The Bears entertain large-school Dimond Friday and Saturday and Soldotna May 29-30, at East Addition Park. “It is going to be nice not to have to worry about traveling,” Kodiak coach Sam Catt said. “It is nice to be here for Crab Fest weekend, something that we normally don’t get to do.” Dimond, out of the Cook Inlet Co...

Teeing Off: Kodiak soccer speaks Spanish on the pitch
Hola, como estas? That is pretty much the extent of my Spanish vocabulary, as I wasn’t the most astute student in foreign language classes. If it wasn’t for Megan — after 15 years I have forgotten her last name, but I do remember she had blonde hair and was taller than me — I would have not passed high school Spanish. She set across from me at the same table and let allowed me to look at her answers. Mahalo, Megan...

Kodiak soccer heads to regions
Making the Northern Lights Conference Soccer Championships was bittersweet for Kodiak’s first-year varsity boys program. The team was thrilled to have qualified, but it came at the steep cost of $6,500. As a self-funded program, the team had to come up with the money to travel to the tournament that begins Thursday at Colony High School. When coach Eric Waltenbaugh found out his team had qualified, he met with his...

Arnold no-hits Houston to clinch South Division
Jakob Arnold’s Saturday outing against Houston started eerily similar to last year’s baseball game against the Hawks. In both contests, Arnold plunked the first hitter, who came around to score. Fortunately for Arnold and Kodiak, the similarities stopped there. Arnold settled down and no-hit Houston in an 8-1 Southcentral Conference victory. The senior right-hander struck out 11 and walked one in seven innings. It...

Kodiak softball swept by Homer

Kodiak 3,200 relay zooms into record books
Not many people would celebrate a record-breaking performance with a run up Pillar Mountain. Then again, maybe that is why they are so good. Michael Parnell, Levi Fried, Jack Hannah and Levi Thomet established a new state standard in the 3,200-meter relay with a phenomenal time of 7 minutes, 51.99 seconds during the Kodiak Invitational on Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. Asked what the group was going to do ...

Teeing Off: Life on the road
Sitting on a school bus for the first time in more than decade brought me back to my playing days. I had plenty of time to stroll down memory lane on the ride from Kenai to Homer. I took a seat up front with the coaches, while the players on Kodiak High School’s baseball team occupied the back — most of them slept, some talked or listened to music through headphones, and a few scribbled on the fogged-up windows. T...

In the first game, Tracy Pedersen drove in two and picked up the win, striking out three and allowing only one hit in three innings. Dannika Catt, Kalameli Matautia and Jade Ponte all collected two hits for K...
