Havoc MMA debuts in Kodiak
Jeff Miranda trained four months for his debut in mixed martial arts fighting. His match lasted less than 10 seconds. Miranda connected on a powerful overhand right that knocked out Brandon Steele seconds after the opening bell. Steele fell, Miranda raised both arms and the estimated 700 people in attendance inside the Kodiak Island Fairgrounds pavilion went wild. That was the shortest of seven fights during the i...

Jemuel Mangalus stepped off a Ravn Alaska airplane at the Kodiak Benny Benson State airport late Saturday night with a smile on his face and a trophy in his hands. He walked through a teammate-formed tunnel before entering the terminal to a steady round of applause — the kind of applause only champions receive. Hours before the Kodiak boys claimed their third state title since 2007 — first since 2013 — in dominati...

CHASING HISTORY: Thomet eyes state records
At 6-foot-1, Keith Osowski towers over Levi Thomet. There is no question that Osowski would school Thomet on the basketball court. But, when it comes to running it is Thomet that is doing the schooling. “My stride is two times longer than his, but he still goes faster,” Osowski jokingly said. Thomet has proven that size doesn’t matter when it comes to running, as the 5-foot-7, 132-pound Kodiak senior is about to w...

Kodiak (14-10) advances to play either Colony or Palmer in another loser-out contest at 10 a.m. Saturday at Houston High School. The winner of that game slides into a ...
