Kodiak boys end Colony drought
The drought is over. Kodiak’s boys basketball team snapped a 16-game losing skid against Colony with an entertaining 63-61 Northern Lights Conference victory Friday at Colony. The next night Kodiak started its own streak against Colony with an even more impressive 63-48 win. The Bears’ last victory against the Mat-Su Valley school was during the 2005-2006 season. That was also Kodiak’s last NLC regular-season swee...
