Playing in the 4A state volleyball championships never crossed Carissa Cannon’s mind at the beginning of the season. “I was just thinking it was going to be one of those years where we are getting ready for the next year,” Kodiak’s junior outside hitter said. But, something happened. Something unexpected. With home-court advantage at last week’s Northern Lights Conference Championships, Kodiak upset No. 1 seed Pal...

Kodiak’s veteran coach seldom sits and is often seen springing into the air in celebration after a powerful kill, dig or block from her team.  Willis does not hide her emotions when it c...

Champions again!
A coach’s decision paved the way for Kodiak’s girls to repeat as state swimming champions. Before the start of Saturday’s state championships at the Bartlett High School pool, John Lindquist rearranged Kodiak’s relays to give his team a chance at a second straight title. In doing so, he traded a potential first-place finish in the 200-yard medley relay for a pair of first-place finishes in the 200 and 400 freestyl...
