They enter today’s 4A state championships as the Northern Lights Conference champions with a 17-1 record. As much as volleyball is a team game, it’s hard to look past Kodiak’s 6-foot-2 outside hitter, Hannah Wandersee. She was named the NLC player of t...

State meet moves from Anchorage to Juneau
John Lindquist has never taken a high school swim team to Juneau during his tenure in Kodiak. That changes today when Kodiak enters the state swimming and diving championships in the capital city. Lindquist is not too excited. Since he has been coach, the meet has always been at Bartlett High School in Anchorage. “Logistics becomes a big problem,” he said. “You have to go that much more farther. There are less res...
