Kodiak spikers off to Wasilla
Kodiak’s volleyball team returns to Northern Lights Conference action today as the Bears play at Wasilla in a rare noon start time in front of the Warriors’ student body. “Playing in front of somebody else’s student body shouldn’t be as scary as playing in front of your own,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said. “That would make them much more nervous.

Tuesdays unite swimmers
Kodiak High School’s swim team met Tuesday for something that didn’t look much like practice.

Homer blanks Kodiak
Kodiak fumbled away a chance at securing a postseason berth Monday night. The Bears lost three second-half fumbles as the Mariners scooped up a crucial 20-0 Northern Lights Conference football victory in pelting rain at Joe Floyd Track and Field.
