It appears Mother Nature will play a role in Kodiak’s home track meets today and Saturday against Seward.

The National Weather Service’s forecast for today is rain with wind gusts of up to 35 mph. Saturday is forecasted for more of the same. 

Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar is bracing for the worst. 

“The important part for our team is to learn how to warm up and stay warm,” he said. “That is our focus. If we get quality performances that will be a bonus.”

Dunbar isn’t expecting season-best times. 

“This weekend is more of a high-quality workout,” he said. “We have a lot of kids doing a lot of events.”

The weather will even play havoc with meet officials. 

“We got to keep our papers dry and keep things from blowing away,” Dunbar said. 

Former Kodiak High School activities director and track coach Sami King now holds the same positions at Seward. The Seahawks compete in the small-school classification. 

Dunbar said his boys should handle Seward, while the girls will be challenged. 

“We are very young, but we are getting a lot better,” Dunbar said. 

Friday’s meet starts at 3 p.m. and will be scored as a coed meet, while Saturday’s events start at 1 p.m. and will be scored as a boys and girls meet.
