Two-time state champion Boskofsky leads Kings' charge
Last year, Port Lions’ Raissa Boskofsky was the best small-school 300-meter hurdler in Alaska. Her state-winning time of 47.93 seconds was the fastest time ever recorded by a Kodiak Island athlete. It’s hard to imagine she was able to accomplish both of those feats practicing with only three hurdles, but she did. She could be even better this year. Boskofsky, a junior, gets to practice with 16 hurdles instead of t...

Baseball, softball still coping with no field use
It’s two weeks before season-opening games for Kodiak’s baseball and softball squads, and neither team has been on their field. Check that. Neither team has been on their field for practice. Both teams have spent plenty of time clearing snow and ice off the playing surfaces. That changes today. Kodiak’s softball team is headed outside, even though 75 percent of the outfield at East Addition Park is still covered i...

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 ...

KHS track hosts Palmer this weekend
Two weeks ago it didn’t appear Kodiak’s track team would be hosting Palmer in a season-opening meet this Friday. But what a difference 14 days and a some helping hands make. The team, along with several community members, are clearing the final remains of snow and ice off Lanes 1 through 4. Their efforts have made it possible for the Bears to host the Moose Friday and Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “It is ...
