Sweeping aside the Kards
Hannah Wandersee is known for her play at the net, but on Friday she left the court smiling over a different part of her game.  Kodiak’s middle hitter dished out a career-high three assists in a 25-13, 25-19, 25-12 Northern Lights Conference volleyball sweep of visiting Kenai in the Kodiak High School gym.  After each assist, the junior couldn’t help but flash a smile in the direction of Kodiak coach Amy Willis.  ...

Kodiak boys cross country second at Palmer
Kodiak’s Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen continued their season on top Saturday at the Palmer Invitational.  The Bears’ dominant duo produced a top two finish in the boys 4A cross country race, but it wasn’t enough for Kodiak to claim the team title.  For the third time this season, Kodiak fell to West Valley, as the Wolfpack had five runners in the top 10, enough to easily win the team title with 29 points.

It could be a big weekend for us.” Wasilla and Service are running at a different m...

The home team kept me from perfection in Week 4. I went 6-1 last week to run my season total to 25-7. My only loss was when I picked Kodiak to take care of business against Thunder Mountain. I was only a couple fumbles away from getting that one right. There are some key conference games in Week 5, so let’s get right to it. Ketchikan (0-4) at Valdez (0-4) — This is a nonconference affair with a pair of winless tea...

KHS alumni update: Former Bear now coaching at Kotzebue
Lance Westing might have been the most popular person at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park Friday evening. Nearly every few minutes, the Kotzebue cross country coach stopped and started a conversation with a different person. They weren’t necessarily asking about his runners, but more about him. Westing is a 1994 Kodiak High School graduate and former cross country, track and basketball athlete. He student ta...
