KHS spikers at West tourney
Kodiak’s on-again, off-again volleyball season resumes today at the West Spiketacular at West Anchorage High School. The Bears have had three weeks of competition and two idle weeks to begin the season. “I just feel like we have had a slow start to our season,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said. “I know we had a few weeks of competition, but it just feels like we are moving in slow motion.” The season picks up steam be...

Kodiak, Homer battle for No. 2 NLC spot Saturday
With only two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Northern Lights Conference playoff race is heating up. For Kodiak, the formula is simple: A win against Homer in Saturday’s home finale would clinch a second-place finish in the NLC and a berth into the medium school playoffs.  If that were to happen, Kodiak likely would travel to Juneau for a rematch against Thunder Mountain in the semfinals. The Falcons ca...

Time running out to reach goal in high school picks
I picked the perfect time to post my second undefeated week of the high school football season. I went 6-0 in Week 6, and with only two weeks remaining in the regular season, time is dwindling on reaching my goal of an .800 winning percentage. The perfect week puts me at 35-10 for the year, or .777. Another mishap on the schedule this week, as Barrow did not host Sitka. Instead, the Whalers beat up on South Anchor...

Hanson reunites with Lindquist on swim deck
Erik Hanson and John Lindquist have traveled nearly identical paths to their positions leading Kodiak High School’s swim team. Both were high school swimming stars in the Anchorage area and then later at Central Washington University. Hanson, four years younger than Lindquist, arrived at Central for his freshman season in the 1980s and couldn’t believe Lindquist was on the team. “I had been following him my whole ...

Girls home winning streak snapped
Kodiak’s girls swimming team doesn’t lose very often at home. So, when Dimond nipped Kodiak, the defending girls state champions, 94-91 on Friday, people left in the stands at the Kodiak Community Pool couldn’t believe what had happened. The loss snapped Kodiak’s 10-meet home winning streak, while the Bears lost for only the second time in their last 23 home meets. It was also the first loss — home or away — for K...

Soldotna spoils Kodiak’s turf debut
Twelve seconds into Saturday’s game, Soldotna sucked the excitement out of the first game played at revamped Joe Floyd Track and Field.  Before fans had a chance to settle into their seats, the Stars’ Troy Streiff scooped up a fumble on the Bears’ first offensive snap and scooted 18 yards for the initial score.  No. 2-ranked Soldotna rolled from there, earning a convincing 41-7 Northern Lights Conference football ...
