Baseball debuts blue/gold scrimmage
Kodiak High School’s baseball team has been given a gift this spring with Mother Nature. And the Bears are taking advantage of the warm weather by playing in the first baseball blue/gold game Saturday at 2 p.m. at Baranof Field. Normally at this time in the season, the field is still covered in snow and ice and the team is stuck practicing indoors. Not this year — the team has had only a handful of indoor practice...

Prep track: Kodiak girls look to improve from last season
Kodiak’s girls are aiming to rebound from last season’s somewhat disappointing track and field season. Last year, Kodiak was the sixth-best team in the nine-team Region III Conference and only garnered one point at the state meet. “We better improve on that because this year there are only six (region) schools,” longtime Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said. “I think we are a better team than we were last year. We didn...

Kodiak opens against Lathrop today
For the past week, players on Kodiak’s girls basketball team have been rising well before sunrise. They did not wake up early to stargaze, but rather to run up and down a court in preparation for today’s 4A state opener against Lathrop at 8 a.m. The team’s morning practices are to acclimate the players to the unlucky draw of a morning game. At first, Carissa Cannon thought she would need a couple of espresso shots...
