KHS softball begins NLC play at Soldotna
Kodiak’s softball team had a lot of time to regroup after opening with four straight losses two weeks ago. The Bears lost two games each to small-school powerhouses Sitka and Juneau in Sitka.

Kodiak track washes away Seward High
An hour before Friday’s track meet against Seward, Kodiak’s Levi Fried called teammate Levi Thomet and asked him to scrounge up a pair of goggles. The conditions outside were perfect — tornado-like gusts and pelting rain — to recreate a past Kodiak sports moment. The current Kodiak duo donned the goggles during their 1,600-meter race, just like Cory Pena did in similar conditions in a home meet against Bartlett in...
