PIGSKIN PICKS: Little guys take it to the big guys
I should hand over pigskin prognostications to new Kodiak High football coach Bill McGuire. He nailed Soldotna’s victory over South, and I didn’t. Cookies for McGuire. In one of the most hyped high school games in state history, Soldotna extended its state-best winning streak to 30 games with a 21-17 win. Chock one up to the medium schools. Actually, chock two up as Palmer, a new medium-school member, also topped ...

Cross country begins season on Peninsula
Kodiak High School’s cross country team is starting the competition portion of its season a week later than normal.

Instead, the Bears will open the season this Saturday at the Tsalteshi Invitational in Soldotna, a...

A thrilling final 35 seconds made Bill McGuire a winner in his debut game as Kodiak’s head coach.

TEEING OFF: A little about McGuire
When I told Gizmo — my 4-year-old Japanese chin — that I was interviewing Kodiak High School’s new football coach, the pup wanted me to ask one question: Do you have a dog?
