Kodiak opens against Colony
Rick Langfitt sat behind his office desk at Kodiak High School Thursday afternoon examining the Southcentral Conference Championship bracket. The veteran Kodiak baseball coach liked what he saw, despite his team being the South Division’s No. 4 seed. “That No. 4 seed in the South doesn’t mean anything to me,” Langfitt said. “We all feel like we are as good as anybody in the conference.” Kodiak opens defense of las...

Chugiak derails Kodiak
After lighting up the scoreboard last week in the Mat-Su Valley, Kodiak was hoping to continue its momentum at home against Chugiak.  The Mustangs had other plans.  The large-school power from the Cook Inlet Conference kept Kodiak quiet in a doubleheader sweep of the Bears Saturday at East Addition Park.  Chugiak rolled out its A squad in the first game and cruised to an 11-2 win in five innings.  The second game ...

State champions
Days before the 4A State Track and Field Championships, Jordan Fogle scratched the 400-meter run to focus on the 800. Wise choice. Fogle, a Kodiak senior, shocked the field in the two-lap race to win his first individual state title Saturday at Lathrop High School in Fairbanks. He just didn’t win, he topped Trevor Dunbar’s school record with a blistering time of 1 minute, 54.86 seconds. It is the second-fastest 80...

Kodiak rallies past Colony
Down 6-2 in the fifth inning to Colony, Michael Wilson reminded his teammates to not give up. The Kodiak senior did not want Thursday evening’s game to turn out like last Saturday’s 24-3 loss to Homer. The reminder helped, and Wilson led the charge. On a night when he collected a team-high three hits, it was his game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth that gave Kodiak an 8-7 Southcentral Conference ...

Boskofsky prepared to hurdle field
The secret to Raissa Boskofksy’s success is the paint on her fingernails. Before Port Lions’ first state basketball title in 2010, Boskofsky bought a bottle of sparkly blue nail polish. Since then, the Port Lions junior has been unstoppable. “If I don’t wear it, I feel like I am going to lose,” Boskofsky said. “It is my lucky nail polish.” She is on her second bottle. The first bottle brought her two 1A state bask...

Freshman Chichenoff gaining experience at hot corner
Sprung into action to begin the season, freshman Celeste Chichenoff has exceeded expectations on the softball diamond. Chichenoff was handed Kodiak’s third base spot when starter Sydney Hosier broke her thumb several weeks before opening day. As a freshman, Chichenoff wasn’t expecting to see much playing time. But she has started in all six of Kodiak’s games this year. “She is doing a lot more than I hoped she wou...

Sterns gets another shot at state
Last year’s 4A state track and field meet was cut short for Kodiak’s Nathan Sterns.   Sterns was in the starting blocks for his 110-meter hurdle preliminary heat when he jumped the gun.  The false start disqualified him from his first state meet before it began.  It wasn’t how he envisioned the moment.  “I got ready. I was all pumped up for state,” Sterns said. “I felt bad. I was just there to watch after that.” K...
