Kodiak 3,200 relay zooms into record books
Not many people would celebrate a record-breaking performance with a run up Pillar Mountain. Then again, maybe that is why they are so good. Michael Parnell, Levi Fried, Jack Hannah and Levi Thomet established a new state standard in the 3,200-meter relay with a phenomenal time of 7 minutes, 51.99 seconds during the Kodiak Invitational on Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. Asked what the group was going to do ...

Teeing Off: Life on the road
Sitting on a school bus for the first time in more than decade brought me back to my playing days. I had plenty of time to stroll down memory lane on the ride from Kenai to Homer. I took a seat up front with the coaches, while the players on Kodiak High School’s baseball team occupied the back — most of them slept, some talked or listened to music through headphones, and a few scribbled on the fogged-up windows. T...

State’s top 3,200-meter relay teams will battle on Friday
This year’s Kodiak Invitational will only feature one visiting team — the Bartlett Golden Bears. Kodiak’s annual end-of-the-season track and field meet was dwindled down to one team when Dimond backed out because of graduation, Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said. Bartlett — Dunbar’s alma mater — is bringing a skeleton crew, but there should be a few good races, specifically the boys’ 1,600 and 3,200-meter relays, whe...

Kodiak baseball splits against Homer
Errors finally caught up to Kodiak in its series finale against Homer. The Bears committed eight errors and coughed up a five-run lead in losing to the Mariners, 9-8, in a Southcentral Conference baseball game Saturday at Homer High School. Homer walked off on one of the oddest plays you will ever see. With the tying run at third and the winning run at second, Kyle Johnson lined a single to center. The ball got un...
