On Friday, the Stars won 25-16, 25-15, 15-25, 25-20 and followed with a 20-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-18 victory on Saturday. “I’m really proud of us. Not only is this...

One of Levi Fried’s goals this cross country season is to earn bragging rights over his older brother. By the end of the season, Fried wants to eclipse Lucas Fried’s 2006 senior season-best 5-kilomter time of 16 minutes, 27 seconds. Watch out Lucas, Levi is fast approaching.

I misfired on Sitka’s victory over Monroe, Seward’s triumph over Thunder Mountain’s junior varsity and Homer’s shutout over Kenai. I can only hope to have better results in Week 4 — the midway point of the regular season. Monr...
