Grab a pencil: Players learn to keep score
As a pitcher, Kodiak’s Brandon Mahle knows how important a good scorekeeper is — whether he is playing or keeping score himself. “You have to learn how to mark errors to help the pitchers out,” the junior said. “Otherwise they are going to get mad at you.” Mahle is Kodiak’s ace on the mound and with the pencil. When he is not pitching, he is keeping Kodiak’s scorebook or training his heir apparent. For most player...

Mahle powers Kodiak past Homer (video)
With one of Kodiak’s all-time greats in the opposite dugout, current Bear Brandon Mahle displayed his talents on the mound. The junior right-hander was reminiscent of Mark Putney, now an assistant coach for Homer, in a dominating performance over the Mariners Friday evening at Baranof Field. Mahle authored a complete-game three-hitter in a 9-2 Southcentral Conference baseball victory over Homer. He tormented the M...

Michael Manifo shining in first year
Michael Manifo showed up at Tuesday’s track and field practice with newly-died blond hair and sandals. It was his surfer look. “I have surfed here three times, but the waves just are not as good as the waves in Hawaii,” he said. “Surfing is definitely fun.” Manifo, a junior, lived in Hawaii for two years with his uncle before relocating to the Emerald Isle in eighth grade. He might not be hanging 10 as much as he ...

Lampl returns to diamond after two years off
The one thing Carole Lampl missed most during her two-year absence from the softball diamond is running the bases. “It kind of sounds funny, but I really honestly missed base running,” said the Kodiak senior before Tuesday’s practice at East Addition Park. “I can get a base hit, but I really just like stealing bases. I’m good at it.” Lampl got a few chances to touch the bases last week when she played in her first...
