Girls home winning streak snapped
Kodiak’s girls swimming team doesn’t lose very often at home. So, when Dimond nipped Kodiak, the defending girls state champions, 94-91 on Friday, people left in the stands at the Kodiak Community Pool couldn’t believe what had happened. The loss snapped Kodiak’s 10-meet home winning streak, while the Bears lost for only the second time in their last 23 home meets. It was also the first loss — home or away — for K...

Soldotna spoils Kodiak’s turf debut
Twelve seconds into Saturday’s game, Soldotna sucked the excitement out of the first game played at revamped Joe Floyd Track and Field.  Before fans had a chance to settle into their seats, the Stars’ Troy Streiff scooped up a fumble on the Bears’ first offensive snap and scooted 18 yards for the initial score.  No. 2-ranked Soldotna rolled from there, earning a convincing 41-7 Northern Lights Conference football ...

From the patch of grass by Fuller’s Boat Yard to Peterson Elementary and from Woody Way Field to Nemetz Gazebo, Kodiak has made due with whatever playable surface it could find. The days of hunting for a practice field are over as artificial turf has replaced the muddy mess t...

Looking to rebound from appalling Week 5
Last week might have been the worst week I’ve ever had as a prognosticator. I was sub-par in picking NFL games and did even worse in my high school picks. My cat could have done a better job than I did. I went an appalling 4-3 last week in picking medium-small school games. That puts me at 29-10 for the season, for a .743 winning percentage. I have three weeks left of the regular season to get above my goal of .80...
