Kodiak boys enter 2012 as six-time region champs
No other Region III team has challenged Kodiak’s track and field team the past six years and the Bears looked primed to own the region again. “I haven’t seen what the rest of the teams have to throw at us, yet. But our team, coming into the early season, is as good as any team we have had lately,” Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said. “We should win a lot of events at regions and hopefully that will materiallize into a...

Kodiak debuts water jump event Saturday at pool
Kodiak is unveiling a new track and field event Saturday morning at the Kodiak Community Pool — the water jump. Instead of jumping into sand, athletes will jump into water. The idea sprouted with a group of Kodiak coaches, because the long jump pit at Joe Floyd Track and Field is still covered in ice and snow and is not ready for today and Saturday’s meet against Palmer. “It was obvious we weren’t going to get to ...

Kodiak girls aim to replace last year’s top point scorers Jaymi Bethea and Samantha Oliver with a group of athletes
At the beginning of the track season, Marcus Dunbar planted an idea in the members of the girls 1,600-meter relay team. The idea: Breaking the 29-year-old school record. “The school record is an old record and has been there for a long time and that is one thing that we might be shooting at,” said Dunbar, Kodiak’s longtime coach. “I like them to think about it. When I see a record that I think can be beat, I like ...

Despite Joe Floyd Track and Field resembling the Bering Sea during the heart of crab fishing season, Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar is optimistic about getting on the track Friday. Judging by the look of the track on Wednesday, it is a long way from being completely ready. Icebergs floated through six inches of standing water on the backstretch, while the Kodiak Middle School track team did their best to clear the slu...
