Kodiak boys look to claim first state cross country title since 2008
Levi Fried feels like he owes Kodiak High School a state title. In 2012, as a sophomore, Fried was part of a Kodiak boys cross country team talented enough to win a state championship. But a mid-season hip injury derailed Fried, and he finished 23rd at the state meet, while the team — behind first- and second-place finishes from Levi Thomet and Cole Christiansen — placed third, a mere 10 points behind champion Wes...

Prep picks: Picks come early in Week 8
This week’s prep high school picks comes a day early since Kodiak plays today at Voznesenka. Being forced to pick games a day early shouldn’t have any impact on how I will do. However, I did have to force Gizmo — my 3-year-old Japanese Chin — into making his picks before he was ready.
