Hughes, Lindquist lead Kodiak into state swimming championships
The Bartlett High School swimming pool has been good to Kodiak. Kodiak’s girls have celebrated a pair of state championships and several individual titles in the past two years at the Anchorage pool. They won’t get that chance this season; Kodiak will still win its share of titles, but not at Bartlett.
