Kodiak third at Homer
Kodiak’s volleyball squad started the season with a third-place finish at the Homer Jamboree Saturday at Homer High School. Kodiak beat Homer in the third/fourth-place game. “We got better every match,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said via cell phone from Homer. “They did well. I was really pleased with the overall performance. We had an opportunity to work out some kinks and the girls worked hard.” Soldotna won the s...

Region III champs, again
Kodiak’s tennis team claimed its sixth straight Region III title before even playing a match this season. “We walk in the door and we are Region III champs immediately,” second-year coach Steve Johnston said. In 2007, Kodiak became the first Region III school with a tennis program; six years later it remains the only school. Johnston would gladly trade all six titles for some Region III competition. “It would be n...

Kodiak’s defense takes stage against No. 2 Houston
New defensive coordinator Dave Owens said Kodiak was going to play aggressive defense this season. He wasn’t joking. The Bears blitzed West Anchorage’s junior varsity at ever opportunity in last week’s 45-0 season-opening victory. “They played well as a unit,” Owens said. “They flew to the ball and made plays.” Kodiak’s defense tallied four sacks — two to begin the game — and held West to minus-25 rushing yards on...

High School pigskin picks: Hoping for nothing but fastballs in Week 2
As usual, the first week of the high school football season threw me some knuckleballs. Normally I’m a fan of knuckleballs, especially if they are coming off R.A. Dickey’s fingertips. However, when it comes to picking games, I just like fastballs down the middle. I misfired badly on Palmer’s victory over last year’s NLC champion Soldotna, Eielson’s win over medium-school runner-up Homer and Monroe’s victory over B...

One full-time player returns to begin 2012 volleyball season
Kodiak’s theme to begin the high school volleyball season sounds a lot like something out of a Mr. Rogers television show. “The thing that we are focusing on the most in practice is getting to know your neighbor,” Bears coach Amy Willis said. “You are playing next to a girl that you haven’t played next to in at least two years. For us it is that familiarity.” Kodiak begins the 2012 season Friday at the Homer Jambo...

Kodiak enters football poll at No. 5
Kodiak’s 45-0 victory over West Anchorage’s junior varsity was enough to sneak the Bears into the latest Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network football poll. Kodiak makes its 2012 debut in the mid-small schools poll at No. 5. Kodiak coach Jim Schnick doesn’t look much into the poll that is voted on by media from across the state. “To be honest, I don’t look at them too much,” he said. “I just prepare for who we have ...

Davidson highlights alumni run
Friday’s alumni run at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park didn’t draw the big guns Kodiak cross country coach Marcus Dunbar was hoping for. However, the run did bring back a member of Kodiak’s 2008 state championship boys team. Chaven Davidson, Kodiak’s fifth runner at state in 2008, graced the Bears’ home course for the first time since that year. And he was feeling the pain after finishing seventh in 19 minu...
