And to boot, the Bears were shorthanded, having only 10 players in Saturday’s conference tilt. That all added up to a 14-0 loss to the Stars at Joe Floyd Track and Field. “The girls had great hustle, good spirit and...

Champs are back
For the fifth time in program history, the Kodiak boys’ track and field team begins the season as the defending 4A state champions. The previous four times never resulted in a repeat. Will that change this season? Senior Kordell Pillans believes it can. “Two out of the three track seasons that I have been here we have won state,” he said. “I’m hoping we can make it three out of the four times that I’m here.” Pilla...
