NLC wrestling tourney comes to Kodiak
The top wrestlers in the Northern Lights Conference will be on display Friday and Saturday in Kodiak. The Bears are hosting their first NLC Championships since 2004. Kodiak finished second last year, behind only Wasilla, which went on to win the state title. The Warriors are again the team to beat. “Wasilla is the best team,” Kodiak coach Pat Costello said. “Now, if Wasilla falters a little bit and we up the tempo...

The Costellos are the only father/son coaching combination in Alaska wrestling
When Kodiak hosted its last Northern Lights Conference Tournament in 1998, Sean Costello was a star wrestler for the Bears. He had a tournament to remember. He won his third NLC title and a week later capped off an undefeated season with his second state title at 125 pounds. However, Costello said the details of that tournament are now a bit fuzzy. “I remember a little bit about it. It is kind of a blur, that whol...

That triumph was backed with a 60-34 win...

Fried and Powers making an impact for KHS wrestling team
Levi Fried is a cross country runner who wrestles at 113 pounds. Kerry Powers is a football player who wrestles at 170 pounds. The two are worlds apart, but put them together and they form one of the best high school freshman duos in the state. “I would put them easy in the top five of all the freshmen in the state, if not one and two,” said Kodiak wrestling coach Pat Costello. Fried and Powers are a combined 56-1...

Kodiak wrestlers off this week, prepare for NLC Tourney
The cancellation of the Jerry Palmer Duals at Bartlett High School has Kodiak’s wrestling team staying home this weekend. The duals were supposed to take place today and Saturday. Instead, Kodiak will use the extra time to practice. “The extra weekend of competition I don’t think will help us right now,” Kodiak coach Pat Costello said. “It wouldn’t hurt us, but I am fine for having this weekend off.” Up next for K...
