Alumni update: KHS stars collide in the pool

Lindquist, Hughes form historic combo
The first time Tahna Lindquist met Ila Hughes was on a soccer pitch. The two were in fifth grade, and Hughes had just moved from Phoenix, Arizona to the Emerald Isle. “They had the ugliest uniforms you have ever seen in your life,” said Tahna’s dad and coach, John. “I remember that, watching them run around and play soccer.” Lucky for John the duo decided to kick soccer to the curb.

Kodiak will make a run at the program’s first boys state title when the state championships begin today with preliminary ...
