A trio of Kodiak Island high school basketball teams invades the Kenai Peninsula starting today.
The Kodiak High School girls kick off the hoops extravaganza at 3 p.m. today against Sitka on the first day of the Seahawk Classic at Seward High School.
The Seahawk Classic is a three-day, round-robin tournament that concludes on Saturday.
Kodiak (8-4) is the only 4A school in the four-team field. Anchorage Christian and host Seward plays in today’s other girls game at 6 p.m. Sitka, ACS and Seward are all in the 3A classification.
Kodiak plays Seward at 6 p.m. on Friday and fourth-ranked ACS at noon on Saturday.
The Kodiak High School boys travel to Kenai Friday and Saturday for a pair of Northern Lights Conference games.
Both teams are winless in conference play this season — Kenai is 0-4 and Kodiak is 0-2.
Kodiak is coming off a pair of conference defeats to Colony.
“We got to forget about those two games and focus on Kenai. Hopefully we can get a split, or a double over there,” Kodiak coach David Anderson said after Saturday’s 29-point loss to the Knights.
After taking last week off, the Kodiak Emerging Small Schools team heads to Cook Inlet Academy for Friday and Saturday games.
The Ravens play CIA’s varsity at 8 p.m. Friday and CIA’s junior varsity on Saturday.
ESS is 2-0 in the Peninsula Conference, while CIA is 6-4 overall.
