Homer, Kodiak to play tonight
Kodiak’s football team spent Saturday and Sunday waiting for Homer to arrive. The Mariners never did. Due to foggy conditions in Kodiak, Homer’s Era Alaska flights on Friday and Saturday were unable to land on the island. Weather conditions improved Sunday, but Homer was unable to schedule a flight. The pivotal Northern Lights Conference game, originally scheduled for Saturday, is now slated for tonight — if Homer...

Kodiak boys go for No. 11
Winning isn’t getting old for Kodiak cross country coach Marcus Dunbar. After claiming 10 consecutive Region III boys titles, Dunbar still gets excited when talking about the streak. “It is always fun. It is always a big day for us,” he said. “The longer the streak gets, the bigger deal it gets. Ten was a big one, and now that we got that, we don’t want to let up. Nobody wants to be on the team that ended the stre...

For Kodiak, the formula is simple: A win against Homer in Saturday’s home finale would clinch a second-place finish in the NLC and a berth into the medium school playoffs.  If that were to happen, Kodiak likely would travel to Juneau for a rematch against Thunder Mountain in the semfinals. The Falcons ca...

Time running out to reach goal in high school picks
I picked the perfect time to post my second undefeated week of the high school football season. I went 6-0 in Week 6, and with only two weeks remaining in the regular season, time is dwindling on reaching my goal of an .800 winning percentage. The perfect week puts me at 35-10 for the year, or .777. Another mishap on the schedule this week, as Barrow did not host Sitka. Instead, the Whalers beat up on South Anchor...

Both were high school swimming stars in the Anchorage area and then later at Central Washington University. Hanson, four years younger than Lindquist, arrived at Central for his freshman season in the 1980s and couldn’t believe Lindquist was on the team. “I had been following him my whole ...
