Kodiak’s defense takes stage against No. 2 Houston
New defensive coordinator Dave Owens said Kodiak was going to play aggressive defense this season. He wasn’t joking. The Bears blitzed West Anchorage’s junior varsity at ever opportunity in last week’s 45-0 season-opening victory. “They played well as a unit,” Owens said. “They flew to the ball and made plays.” Kodiak’s defense tallied four sacks — two to begin the game — and held West to minus-25 rushing yards on...

High School pigskin picks: Hoping for nothing but fastballs in Week 2
As usual, the first week of the high school football season threw me some knuckleballs. Normally I’m a fan of knuckleballs, especially if they are coming off R.A. Dickey’s fingertips. However, when it comes to picking games, I just like fastballs down the middle. I misfired badly on Palmer’s victory over last year’s NLC champion Soldotna, Eielson’s win over medium-school runner-up Homer and Monroe’s victory over B...

One full-time player returns to begin 2012 volleyball season
Kodiak’s theme to begin the high school volleyball season sounds a lot like something out of a Mr. Rogers television show. “The thing that we are focusing on the most in practice is getting to know your neighbor,” Bears coach Amy Willis said. “You are playing next to a girl that you haven’t played next to in at least two years. For us it is that familiarity.” Kodiak begins the 2012 season Friday at the Homer Jambo...

Kodiak continues mainland adventure
Kodiak High School’s cross country team arrived late to the Colony Twilight meet Tuesday night but still posted the top two times of the night.

Kodiak was forced to run in the community race instead of the high school races because ...

Kodiak enters football poll at No. 5
Kodiak’s 45-0 victory over West Anchorage’s junior varsity was enough to sneak the Bears into the latest Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network football poll. Kodiak makes its 2012 debut in the mid-small schools poll at No. 5. Kodiak coach Jim Schnick doesn’t look much into the poll that is voted on by media from across the state. “To be honest, I don’t look at them too much,” he said. “I just prepare for who we have ...

Davidson highlights alumni run
Friday’s alumni run at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park didn’t draw the big guns Kodiak cross country coach Marcus Dunbar was hoping for. However, the run did bring back a member of Kodiak’s 2008 state championship boys team. Chaven Davidson, Kodiak’s fifth runner at state in 2008, graced the Bears’ home course for the first time since that year. And he was feeling the pain after finishing seventh in 19 minu...

KHS football opens with win (video)
The Jim Schnick era couldn’t have started any better for Kodiak. The Bears scored a convincing 45-0 season-opening nonconference football victory over West Anchorage’s junior varsity at a damp Woody Way Field Saturday morning. It was apparent from the first snap that West Anchorage’s junior varsity was no match for Kodiak’s varsity. Defensive ends Logan Owens and Ruben Amodo greeted West quarterback Sam Wedin in t...

Cross country boys begin with high hopes
Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar isn’t vague when discussing the boys cross country squad’s chances of success this season. “There is no sandbagging and telling you we are rebuilding,” the veteran coach said. “This should be a good year for us.” Kodiak’s 2012 season gets underway Monday at the Nikiski Class Races on the Kenai Peninsula, and even though the state meet is at the end of September, the boys are already sett...
