Kodiak looks to close gap between runners
Kodiak found out last Saturday that its quest for the school’s fourth boys cross country state title isn’t going to come easy.

Fairbanks-based West Valley placed four runners in the top 7, while its fifth wasn’t too far behind in 14th. “What we found out is that West Valley is ...

Crossing the Shelikof Strait is nothing new for Steven Leitheiser. As a football player for Kodiak, and now as the Bears’ high school league coordinator, he has taken the ferry to Homer more times than he can remember. “I have done this trip so many times, it is a part of life,” said Leitheiser, a 2008 Kodiak graduate. He adds another ferry trip to his total today when Kodiak departs for its Saturday game at Palme...

High School football picks: Aiming for another perfect week
I’m no Felix Hernandez, but I joined him last week in the Perfect Club Lounge. Hernandez pitched the first perfect game in the 35-year history of the Seattle Mariners, while I authored a perfect week in picking high school football games. If you ask me, both are astonishing feats. I went 7-0 last week to up my season total to 14-3 for a winning percentage of .823. I guess I should stop now while I’m above my seaso...

KHS swimmers prepare for upcoming meets
Since the second week of August, Kodiak High School’s swim team has been racking up yardage at the Kodiak Community Pool. Between two practices a day, Kodiak swimmers swim a combined 11,000 yards nearly every day — the equivalent of 110 football field-length sprints. That is a lot of swimming, but swimming that needs to be done as the Bears head into their first meet of the season, which is still more than a week ...

Kodiak vaults to No. 2 in rankings
Kodiak’s rise up the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network high school football poll continued Monday.

Kodiak runs through Houston
In a span of 90 seconds, Melvin Javier took over Saturday’s game.  Kodiak’s speedy back broke free for a pair of touchdowns in the final moments of the first half to spark the Bears in a 32-12 Northern Lights Conference football victory over Houston at Woody Way Field.  Just like Jemuel Medina did in last week’s season-opening victory, Javier displayed the quickness of Kodiak’s backfield.  The sophomore had second...
