Teeing Off: Kodiak soccer speaks Spanish on the pitch
Hola, como estas? That is pretty much the extent of my Spanish vocabulary, as I wasn’t the most astute student in foreign language classes. If it wasn’t for Megan — after 15 years I have forgotten her last name, but I do remember she had blonde hair and was taller than me — I would have not passed high school Spanish.

Arnold no-hits Houston to clinch South Division
Jakob Arnold’s Saturday outing against Houston started eerily similar to last year’s baseball game against the Hawks. In both contests, Arnold plunked the first hitter, who came around to score. Fortunately for Arnold and Kodiak, the similarities stopped there. Arnold settled down and no-hit Houston in an 8-1 Southcentral Conference victory. The senior right-hander struck out 11 and walked one in seven innings. It...
