Kodiak stumbles at Kenai
Kodiak’s chances at qualifying for the medium-school football playoffs dwindled Saturday on the Kenai Peninsula. Kenai routed Kodiak, 56-8, in an important Northern Lights Conference game at Ed Hollier Field. The loss dropped the Bears to 1-1 in the NLC (1-2 overall) and made it harder for Kodiak to advance to the postseason for the third consecutive season. Kodiak is not eliminated, but will most likely have to b...

Ostrander breaks Fort Abercrombie record
Kenai's Allie Ostrander pulverized a 28-year-old record on Friday at the Kodiak Invitational. The nationally ranked senior covered the 5-kilometer course in a blistering time of 17 minutes, 34 seconds, breaking Kodiak's Kristi (Klinnert) Waythomas' time of 18:43 set in 1986. Kodiak's Levi Thomet won the boys race in 15:23, three seconds shy of Trevor Dunbar's course record set in 2008. Thomet's time is the second ...

Pigskin picks: Madden 15 keeps football fans occupied
For football fans, Tuesday was a holiday with the release of Madden 15. I picked up my copy before work and stared at coverboy Richard Sherman the entire day — not much work got done that day. Since a Seahawk graced the cover, I thought about leaving the game in the package, but I thought better of it and ripped off the plastic and stuck the disc into the Xbox as soon as I got home from work. I was not disappointe...

Thomet and Ostrander aiming to break course records

Swimmers flock to the pool
While Kodiak High School’s football team is lacking in players, Kodiak’s swim team is not. The 2014 swimming and diving team has 48 athletes — the most since John Lindquist took over the program in the early 2000s. “The program has developed itself,” he said. “Kids hear about what we do, and I don’t think kids are afraid to work.” The team has two practices a day, and Lindquist said close to 30 students show up fo...

Kodiak remains out of football rankings
Earning its first victory of the season wasn’t enough to propel Kodiak into the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network’s weekly high school football rankings. The win was thrilling — a 22-20 Northern Lights Conference decision over Homer. Kodiak went ahead on a two-point conversion with under nine minutes left in the contest and then swatted away Homer on a pair of trips inside the red zone that preserved the Bears’ f...
