Kodiak football fills bye week with junior varsity opponent
For the second straight season, Kodiak’s football team will play a large-school junior varsity team. The Bears play South Anchorage’s JV squad at 3 p.m. Saturday in Anchorage. “I always think it is better to play up in competition,” Kodiak coach Jim Schnick said. “Nothing against South or anything, but it is a varsity squad going against a junior varsity squad. We are not sure what to expect.” This was to be a bye...

Prep picks: So much for the pefect season
There goes my perfect season. After going 5-0 in Week 1, I fell back to reality with an 8-2 mark in Week 2. I misfired on Kenai’s three-point win over Wasilla, which I shouldn’t count as a loss since the game was played in a Mat-Su monsoon. I also incorrectly picked Juneau’s win over Viewpoint, Calif., which I shouldn’t count either because I knew absolutely nothing about the Golden State kids. I’ll try to do bett...

Seniors lead KHS volleyball into 2013 season
Amy Willis doesn’t want to jinx her Kodiak High School volleyball team, but the veteran coach can’t help but be excited about her 2013 squad. “These guys are going to be great, and if we don’t start great then we are going to finish great,” Willis said.

Kodiak girls cross country brings back two top runners
Kodiak’s girls cross country team’s top goal this season is to get back to the state meet. Last season, Kodiak failed to qualify for state after being the fourth-best team in Region III. “Getting a team to state is a huge goal,” Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said. “To think any further than that is beyond where we are at right now. We are so untested in so many positions throughout the varsity.” Kodiak does return tw...
