He had watched them play over fuzzy Internet feeds before, but never live. “It was very exciting,” Kewan said. “I wished I could have watched them play a lot more during their high school ...

Kodiak High School wrestling heads to the Glen Vandergaw Invitational hoping to build on the momentum gained from last weekend. The Bears produced one of their best showings of the season at the John Tobin Invitational in Fairbanks by placing four wrestlers in the finals — three walked away as champions.

I was especially amazed at the fans that attended Saturday’s Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament, but I guess I shouldn’t have been, since I know how much Kodiak...
