Kodiak rallies past Colony
Down 6-2 in the fifth inning to Colony, Michael Wilson reminded his teammates to not give up. The Kodiak senior did not want Thursday evening’s game to turn out like last Saturday’s 24-3 loss to Homer. The reminder helped, and Wilson led the charge. On a night when he collected a team-high three hits, it was his game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth that gave Kodiak an 8-7 Southcentral Conference ...

Boskofsky prepared to hurdle field
The secret to Raissa Boskofksy’s success is the paint on her fingernails. Before Port Lions’ first state basketball title in 2010, Boskofsky bought a bottle of sparkly blue nail polish. Since then, the Port Lions junior has been unstoppable. “If I don’t wear it, I feel like I am going to lose,” Boskofsky said. “It is my lucky nail polish.” She is on her second bottle. The first bottle brought her two 1A state bask...

Freshman Chichenoff gaining experience at hot corner
Sprung into action to begin the season, freshman Celeste Chichenoff has exceeded expectations on the softball diamond. Chichenoff was handed Kodiak’s third base spot when starter Sydney Hosier broke her thumb several weeks before opening day. As a freshman, Chichenoff wasn’t expecting to see much playing time. But she has started in all six of Kodiak’s games this year. “She is doing a lot more than I hoped she wou...

Sterns gets another shot at state
Last year’s 4A state track and field meet was cut short for Kodiak’s Nathan Sterns.   Sterns was in the starting blocks for his 110-meter hurdle preliminary heat when he jumped the gun.  The false start disqualified him from his first state meet before it began.  It wasn’t how he envisioned the moment.  “I got ready. I was all pumped up for state,” Sterns said. “I felt bad. I was just there to watch after that.” K...

Grab a pencil: Players learn to keep score
As a pitcher, Kodiak’s Brandon Mahle knows how important a good scorekeeper is — whether he is playing or keeping score himself. “You have to learn how to mark errors to help the pitchers out,” the junior said. “Otherwise they are going to get mad at you.” Mahle is Kodiak’s ace on the mound and with the pencil. When he is not pitching, he is keeping Kodiak’s scorebook or training his heir apparent. For most player...
