Bigley finished 14th with a 5-kilometer time of 19 minutes, 42.6 seconds Saturday afternoon on the Bartlett High School Trail. “That is a significant improvement from last year .. she is very thrilled for that, and so am I,” Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said.

Kodiak boys look to claim first state cross country title since 2008
Levi Fried feels like he owes Kodiak High School a state title. In 2012, as a sophomore, Fried was part of a Kodiak boys cross country team talented enough to win a state championship. But a mid-season hip injury derailed Fried, and he finished 23rd at the state meet, while the team — behind first- and second-place finishes from Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen — placed third, a mere 10 points behind champion Wes...

It was a good experience,” Kodiak coach Jim Schnick said via cell ...

Prep picks: Picks come early in Week 8
This week’s prep high school picks comes a day early since Kodiak plays today at Voznesenka. Being forced to pick games a day early shouldn’t have any impact on how I will do. However, I did have to force Gizmo — my 3-year-old Japanese Chin — into making his picks before he was ready. Since Gizmo is not familiar with high school teams, I didn’t think it would be fair for him to pick prep games. Instead he will try...

Kenai clinched the final Northern Lights Conference berth into the medium-school playoffs, while Kodiak and Homer were eliminated from playoff consideration. “We may have not gotten the results this season tha...
