Flipping for baseball
Alec Eastman has a little Ozzie Smith in him. Smith is a Hall of Fame baseball player known for doing backflips during his 18-year big-league career. Eastman is a Kodiak senior who also gets a kick out of doing flips. “When I do flips I get really excited,” Eastman said. “I get really hyper and just want to keep doing them.” Smith routinely backflipped when he took his shortstop position while playing for the San ...

Fogle, a Kodiak senior, shocked the field in the two-lap race to win his first individual state title Saturday at Lathrop High School in Fairbanks. He just didn’t win, he topped Trevor Dunbar’s school record with a blistering time of 1 minute, 54.86 seconds. It is the second-fastest 80...
