Mahle powers Kodiak past Homer (video)
With one of Kodiak’s all-time greats in the opposite dugout, current Bear Brandon Mahle displayed his talents on the mound. The junior right-hander was reminiscent of Mark Putney, now an assistant coach for Homer, in a dominating performance over the Mariners Friday evening at Baranof Field. Mahle authored a complete-game three-hitter in a 9-2 Southcentral Conference baseball victory over Homer. He tormented the M...

Michael Manifo shining in first year
Michael Manifo showed up at Tuesday’s track and field practice with newly-died blond hair and sandals. It was his surfer look. “I have surfed here three times, but the waves just are not as good as the waves in Hawaii,” he said. “Surfing is definitely fun.” Manifo, a junior, lived in Hawaii for two years with his uncle before relocating to the Emerald Isle in eighth grade. He might not be hanging 10 as much as he ...

Mark Putney, a 2006 Kodiak graduate, is a first-year assistant coach for Homer. “I’m very excited to have him back,” Kodiak coach Rick Langfitt said. “I am very proud of him. He is just a great guy. “I think Mark is more competitive than I am. It is not going to be weird for me, and I don’t think it is going to be wei...

Lampl returns to diamond after two years off
The one thing Carole Lampl missed most during her two-year absence from the softball diamond is running the bases. “It kind of sounds funny, but I really honestly missed base running,” said the Kodiak senior before Tuesday’s practice at East Addition Park. “I can get a base hit, but I really just like stealing bases. I’m good at it.” Lampl got a few chances to touch the bases last week when she played in her first...
