Kodiak netters earn 2 victories
All Kodiak volleyball needed was a trip to Southeast Alaska to right the ship. The Bears swept Sitka and Mt. Edgecumbe on Friday and finished its first trip to Sitka since 2013 with a perfect 4-0 record. Kodiak upped its season record to 4-6. A day after needing five sets to dispose of Mt. Edgecumbe, the Bears earned a 26-24, 25-9, 25-23 victory over the 3A school. Senior Ryana Recustodio powered down nine kills a...

Saving Maya: Fire departments rescue dog on Labor Day
Disclaimer: This is not a sports column, but one that all animal lovers will like. I’m a sucker for dog stories. While doing my nightly scroll of Facebook, I came across a post that caught my attention, and Gizmo’s and Pepper Jack’s, too. It read: “Big shout out to my girl Betsy and all the firefighters and friends that came out today to help rescue my dog, Maya. She ran down part of a cliff and fell the rest of t...

Kodiak football faces Soldotna
A few weeks ago, Kodiak football coach Bill McGuire was rooting for Soldotna to beat East Anchorage. Kind of odd, considering Kodiak and Soldotna play in the same conference, but the second-year coach got his wish when the Stars punched in a late-game two-point conversion to win 22-21. The Kenai-Peninsula powerhouse added a win against Palmer last week and heads to the island riding a state-best 44-game winning st...

PIGSKIN PICKS: Almost a perfect week
Last week, I told you about the Ketchikan football team walking off the field in a game against Thunder Mountain. Well, that cost the school $500 and a one-year probation, the Alaska Dispatch News reported. The penalties are based on the Alaska School Activities Association polices. Ketchikan forfeited its game against Thunder Mountain two weeks ago because the coach thought the Falcons were being too physical. Tw...

Arnold steps down as KHS baseball coach
The man who guided Kodiak High School’s baseball team to a pair of state tournament appearances is leaving the program. On Monday, James Arnold announced he stepped down, ending a four-year run as head coach of the Bears. “It’s about the kids and I think that right now they could use some new leadership,” he said. “I have had so much fun and made so many memories; I’m excited for the young players.” Arnold had big...

Kodiak drops 2 to Palmer despite holding late leads
In baseball, teams use closers to preserve late-game leads. Kodiak’s volleyball team could have used a closer in its two Northern Lights Conference matches against Palmer. In seven sets played over the weekend at Kodiak High School, the Bears held late leads in four of them and failed to convert on set point four times. Three sets went past 25 points. All the heartbreak equated to a pair of tough losses to Palmer ...

Kodiak football tumbles out of rankings
Kodiak’s run in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network’s football poll is over. The Bears tumbled out of the rankings after their 30-6 loss to Kenai on Saturday. Kodiak entered the rankings after Week 2 and rose to as high as No. 3 in the medium-small school poll. However, back-to-back losses knocked the Bears out of the rankings. Kodiak went into its matchup with the Kenai at No. 5. The Kardinals moved up a spot ...

Kodiak’s Osowski, Homer’s Pitzman cruise to victories
Keith Osowski forgot just how brutal running at Fort Abercrombie can be on the legs. In his first race at his home course this season, Osowski shot out of a gun and then hit a wall. Luckily for him, he had plenty of cushion to defend his Abercrombie XC Invitational title Friday evening at Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park. “I forgot about the hills,” Osowski said. “It got to me ... I started feeling the pain....

Kenai tops Kodiak in first Salmon Bowl
Davis Lowery got the best of his former team on Saturday. Kenai scored the game’s opening 20 points and rolled to a 30-6 Northern Lights Conference football victory in the inaugural “Salmon Bowl” at Kenai High School. Lowery headed Kodiak’s defense last season and in the offseason was named the head coach of the Kenai Kardinals. Lowery and second-year Kodiak coach Bill McGurie decided to label the game the “Salmon...

Kodiak swims to titles
Another week, another record for Kodiak’s Talon Lindquist. Lindquist lowered his school record in the 500-yard freestyle as Kodiak’s boys swam to a 77-point victory at Saturday’s Homer Invitational. The Kodiak girls won eight events and topped Soldotna by 20 points. Lindquist won the 500 free with a time of 4:46.14, .67 seconds faster than his old school mark, set in 2014. Lindquist also won the 50 free, while Luk...
