Chya pressed into duty
After catching Kodiak’s junior varsity baseball game Friday, Josiah Chya thought his job was done. He was on the Bears’ bench for the varsity game against Kenai as a last-minute addition to the roster if something happened to starter Seth Starr. Something did happen. Starr was ejected in the first inning for running over Kenai’s catcher on a force play at the plate. Chya didn’t know what was going on when Kodiak c...

Kodiak NYO team returns from games
No Kodiak Island athlete placed in the Native Youth Olympics, Thursday-Sunday in Anchorage, but they all recorded personal bests. “We did good. The kids exceeded a lot more than what they expected,” Kodiak coach Georgianna Spear said. “They had a lot of help from the other athletes that were competing. “They were nervous, but their minds were a lot more calmer when they met some athletes and that really helped the...

Kodiak softball splits with Kenai in opener (video)
Richelle Ferris’ return to the Kodiak lineup was a successful one Friday afternoon against Kenai. Ferris, a senior, sparked the Bears from the leadoff spot, scoring three times — all in unique fashion — in a 10-3 Northern Lights Conference softball game at East Addition Park. Kodiak wasn’t so lucky on Saturday, dropping a 16-9 conference contest to Kenai. Ferris was sidelined her entire junior season after breakin...

Kodiak done in by Kenai, rain
Opening weekend didn’t pan out the way Kodiak would have liked. The Bears committed four uncharacteristic errors and had a player ejected in a 7-5 Southcenteral Conference baseball loss to Kenai Friday at Baranof Field. Kodiak bounced back on Saturday and was ahead 11-2 in the second inning against Kenai when the game was suspended due to rain and sloppy field conditions. “There are no plans, right now, to finish ...

Kodiak baseball pieces together a team
Rick Langfitt begins this season within reach of a momentous milestone. Langfitt, entering his ninth season as Kodiak’s baseball coach, sits eight wins away from 100. With 12 regular-season games awaiting Kodiak, there is a good possibility that Langfitt will hit the century mark this season. “It would be nice to have a nice round number of wins,” Langfitt said. “It would mean I coached a while, because you don’t ...

More SCC games added to schedule
Southcentral Conference baseball teams will play more meaningful games against each other this season. The SCC is switching from a seven-game conference schedule to a 10-game format this season. The change was fueled by coaches who felt seven games was not enough. “What it means is that we don’t have as many games on the varsity schedule where we can experiment,” Kodiak coach Rick Langfitt said. “The games are all...

Last week, starting third baseman Sydney Hosier broke her thumb in practice and will miss the entire season. Catt, though, isn’t letting the similarities bother him. He is geared up to begin his second season as coach when Kodiak opens t...
