New playing surface finally gives Kodiak a home
Kodiak High School’s football team finally has a home. Since the first year of football in 2002, the team has practiced all over the island. 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...

KHS tennis gains experience at Homer
Kodiak High School’s tennis team spent last weekend in Homer for a community tennis tournament put on by the Homer Tennis Association. Kodiak took 12 players to the tournament, but all walked away winless, said Bears coach Steve Johnston. “We gained experience, and it was a good all-around trip,” Johnston said. “We managed to get to play. It did stop raining long enough for us to get in about four hours worth.” On...

Past Kodiak swimming star helps Bears
Greg Rose proved he was a decent diver for Kodiak. He dabbled in it one year — his sophomore season — and was the top Region III diver in 2002. “I kind of wanted to focus on butterfly, so I kind of pushed it aside,” said Rose Monday at the Kodiak Community Pool. Rose, a 2005 Kodiak graduate, spent the past three weeks as the Bears’ dive coach. Rose’s last practice with the team was Monday, as he returned home to H...

Kodiak FB remains unranked
Beating Kenai on the final play of the game wasn’t enough to move Kodiak back into the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network football poll. For the second consecutive week, the Bears remain out of the poll, released Monday. This time, however, Kodiak is coming off a dramatic 20-19 victory at Kenai instead of a one-point loss at Thunder Mountain. Kodiak was down 19-7 entering the fourth quarter, but rallied for a pair...
