Prep football: Kodiak ranked fifth in final poll
Kodiak started the season as the No. 5 team in the medium-small schools classification and will end in the same spot in the final Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network football poll of the season. After a three-week absence in the rankings, Kodiak reappears at No. 5 alongside Kenai, which received the same number of votes. The two teams collide in the opening round of the playoffs Saturday in Kenai. Kenai won the fir...

Sega honored in win
Wearing her son’s away jersey, Ivoga Sega was shocked to see her son Leo approach her just minutes before kickoff of Kodiak’s regular-season finale against Skyview. Leo surprised his mom with a pink helmet signed by the entire team and then he took her hand and escorted her to midfield as an honorary captain for the midfield coin flip. A year ago, Ivoga was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had surgery to remove t...

KHS volleyball sweeps Colony
Summer McKechnie might just have the toughest position on the court. As Kodiak’s setter, it is her responsibility to set up the offense, not a difficult task, but when you add all of the Bears’ offensive weapons, it becomes hard to please everybody. McKechnie was at her best in Kodiak’s 2013 home debut, distributing the ball to six different players in a dominating 25-10, 25-17, 25-15 sweep of the visiting Colony ...

Prep picks: Final week of season
The final week of the high school football season is upon us. So far, the season hasn’t been much of a challenge. Last week’s 7-1 record raises my season total to 53-6 (.898). The only game I misfired on was Ketchikan’s victory over Thunder Mountain. This week’s schedule features several games that could go either way, and two conference titles are up for grabs. It should be interesting. Week 8: Barrow (3-3) at Va...

Overcoming challenges
Every time Illa Macinko is asked how tall she is, she gives a precise answer. “I am 5-1¼ — don’t forget the fourth,” she said. Being undersized hasn’t slowed the Kodiak senior. As a youth in the Kodiak Kingfishers swimming program she was one of the top swimmers in the state. She still holds three individual club records for the eight-and-under division. But as others started getting taller, Macinko started lookin...

Kodiak volleyball creates buzz
Kodiak’s second-place finish at the West Spiketacular created a lot of buzz in Anchorage. A high school friend of Amy Willis filled in the coach. “She sent me a Facebook message telling me she was really sorry that she missed our tournament because that was all they were talking about at adult league (volleyball) on Sunday, was the Kodiak volleyball team,” Willis said. The Bears sent ripples through the volleyball...
