Thomet second in Oregon
Levi Thomet’s undefeated season came to an end on Saturday in Oregon. It didn’t end without a fight. The Kodiak junior placed second in a talented boys elite varsity race at the George Fox XC Classic Willamette Mission State Park in Gervais, Ore., just a week after winning his second 4A Alaska state title. Thomet led in the 5-kilometer run before Matthew Maton of Summit High School (Ore.) broke away with about 2,0...

Kenai ends Kodiak’s football season
For the second season in a row, Kodiak’s football season ended in a lopsided decision on the Kenai Peninsula. Behind six Jace Daniels rushing touchdowns, Kenai bounced Kodiak from the medium-schools playoffs with a 47-6 victory Saturday in Kenai. Kodiak wraps up its season with a 5-3 record and exits the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive season. Last year, the Bears lost at Soldotna 62-7. “I’m...

Rematch on the Kenai Peninsula
Kodiak center Hunter McKee loves seeing his team’s running backs break loose for a long touchdown run. It’s something he has seen a lot the past three weeks. “It is a relief; it means I don’t have to do as much work,” the junior said. McKee and the rest of the line have done plenty of work. They’re a big reason the team is facing Kenai in a medium-schools quarterfinal playoff game at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Kenai. I...

Prep picks: Too many teams get invited to the postseason
High school football playoffs are here. But is it really the playoffs when you have teams like Ketchikan and Houston rewarded for being well under .500? That is my gripe with high school football in Alaska. The 31 schools that have football are divided into three classifications — small, medium and large. This is the third season with three classifications. With three classifications, you have teams getting into t...

Kodiak swimmer heating up in final year
As a sophomore, Sam Kirchenschlager used swimming as an excuse to hang out with his friends. His afterschool hangout still exists, but as a Kodiak High senior, the swimming is what keeps him coming back to the pool. What got his competitive juices flowing was last year’s sixth-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke at the regional meet. He came into this season with a drive to get better. “Compared to other yea...

Kodiak tennis off to state
Icy Basa grew up in the Philippines playing badminton. When she became a freshman at Kodiak High School, she decided to give tennis a try. Basa soon found out tennis is nothing like badminton. “I was thinking that tennis was like badminton expect the racquet is smaller and the shuttle is not like a ball,” she said. Basa uses her athleticism to cover the tennis court and on Friday will make her third and final trip...
