Prep baseball: Bears earn South No. 1 seed
Baseball coach James Arnold is determined to keep history from repeating itself at this season’s Southcentral Conference Baseball Tournament, which begins today in Mat-Su. Last year, Kodiak’s season ended with two losses and all-conference hurler Brandon Mahle not even throwing a pitch. Then-Kodiak coach Rick Langfitt was saving Mahle for the championship game, but the Bears never got that far. “I don’t want to se...

Prep softball: Kodiak’s offense comes alive
Kodiak’s bats supplied the heat during a blustery and frigid four-game softball homestand over the weekend at East Addition Park. The Bears outscored Houston and Eagle River 73-9 in the four victories that capped Kodiak’s home season. “The girls can hit,” Kodiak coach Sam Catt said. “That is something that we have been working on the last few years. When they are dialed in, they can hit.” Kodiak’s two Northern Lig...

Prep baseball: Kodiak downs Houston in conference finale
Closers typically only work one inning, but on Friday against Houston, Austin Frick was asked to go more. After starter Jakob Arnold labored through three innings, Frick came in and pitched four near-flawless innings to preserve Kodiak’s 10-3 Southcentral Conference victory at Baranof Field. Kodiak wraps up conference play with a 5-2 record — its only losses are to Colony and Kenai, the only two teams ahead of Kod...

Kodiak boys in hunt for state track title
Do the Kodiak boys have enough firepower to win their first state track and field title since 2007? The overwhelming consensus among the team is in emphatic “yes.” “I think we do,” sophomore Levi Fried said. “I don’t think we are as stacked as the ’07 team, but we definitely have a shot at it.” Fried has extra motive in helping the Bears when state: His older brother Lucas was on the 2007 team, and he wants a titl...

Kodiak cruises past Palmer
Kodiak turned to captain Brandon Mahle Thursday evening to end a two-game Southcentral Conference losing skid.

Prep track: Boskofsky aiming for a 3-peat
Port Lions’ Raissa Boskofsky is looking to add even more hardware to her already overcrowded trophy case when the 1/2/3A state track and field championships begin today in Fairbanks. Boskofsky is the two-time defending champion in both the 300 hurdles and the high jump and is the odds-on favorite to cash in again. “I want to 3-peat,” said Boskofsky earlier this season. “I want it so bad.” If the senior does, she w...
