Osowski conquers; Kodiak boys win 15th in a row
One of the first things that Keith Osowski did after winning his first cross country regional individual title was call his brother. He couldn’t resist. See, his brother, James Osowski, won a regional title on Tsalteshi Trails — nearly the exact course Keith ran on on Saturday — in 2010. “I had a faster time and the same place. I finally have bragging rights over my brother,” Keith said. Keith, who was last year’s...

Kodiak falls to W.V.
Senior Josh Cummings and his West Valley Wolfpack teammates celebrated homecoming in a big way Friday night.

The West Valley defense also came up with some big plays, with five interceptions and a recovery of a muffed punt. Cummings had one...

Kodiak boys XC looking for 15th straight regional title
Soldotna football’s gigantic 45-game win streak has garnered a lot of statewide attention, and rightfully so. It is impressive. For those not connected with the running world, there is also a pretty good streak here on the island. One that could be deemed equally as impressive as Soldotna’s. The Kodiak boys cross country team has won 14 consecutive Region III titles and are going for No. 15 Saturday at Tsalteshi T...

Prep Picks: Racking up the victories
While I have been spotty in picking NFL games, I have been nearly spot on in the high school ranks. I cashed out last week with a 12-3 record, which upped my overall mark to an outstanding 61-23 (.726). With only two weeks remaining the regular season, lots of teams are jockeying for playoff position. Should make for some good action in Week 7. Wasilla (2-4) at Chugiak (3-3) — Chugiak is coming off its biggest win...

Streaks end in final home cross country meet
Two things happened Friday at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park that hasn’t happened in years — a victory by a Kodiak girl and a loss by a Kodiak boy.

Less than an hour later, Anchorage Christian’s Blake Bennett held off Kodiak’s K...

Soldotna ups winning streak to 45 games with 42-0 win over Kodiak
Midway through the third quarter, Kodiak’s Kaleb Finley danced off the field and yelled to his defensive coordinator, “That is another stop.” The Bears’ defense did an admirable job against high-powered Soldotna, but it wasn’t enough as Kodiak fell 42-0 in a Northern Lights Conference football game Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. The Stars, which were stopped twice on fourth downs and forced to punt twice, ...
