The Segas lead Kodiak’s throwing attack
Brothers Mua and Leo Sega battled during the wrestling season; now they are butting heads in a different type of circle.

And the competition between the family members couldn’t be fiercer. “I want to beat him (Mua) every time I throw,” Leo said. “So far, I am getting closer and closer to beating him.” Leo, a sophomore...

Kodiak softball watches video to prepare for SoHi
Kodiak’s softball team traded its field for a couch during Thursday’s practice. The team spent the afternoon at coach Sam Catt’s house watching a recorded college softball game, complete with pizza, salad, fruit and soda. The food was just a bonus, though. “It is a bonding thing. It gives all the kids a chance to sit around and analyze parts of the game,” Catt said. “When we are in practice, we are always in such ...

Chya pressed into duty
After catching Kodiak’s junior varsity baseball game Friday, Josiah Chya thought his job was done. He was on the Bears’ bench for the varsity game against Kenai as a last-minute addition to the roster if something happened to starter Seth Starr. Something did happen. Starr was ejected in the first inning for running over Kenai’s catcher on a force play at the plate. Chya didn’t know what was going on when Kodiak c...
