Kodiak boys in hunt for state track title
Do the Kodiak boys have enough firepower to win their first state track and field title since 2007? The overwhelming consensus among the team is in emphatic “yes.” “I think we do,” sophomore Levi Fried said. “I don’t think we are as stacked as the ’07 team, but we definitely have a shot at it.” Fried has extra motive in helping the Bears when state: His older brother Lucas was on the 2007 team, and he wants a titl...
