KHS soccer splits at Nikiski
Kodiak High School’s boys soccer club finally took the pitch against another high school team Tuesday. The Bears fell to Nikiski’s varsity squad, 2-1, and beat the Bulldogs’ junior varsity, 9-2, at Nikiski High School. “They were ready to go,” Kodiak coach Eric Waltenbaugh said. “We had a little nerves going into it, but all those things go away with more experience and more games.” Kodiak’s tied the game at 1 whe...

Kodiak track washes away Seward High
An hour before Friday’s track meet against Seward, Kodiak’s Levi Fried called teammate Levi Thomet and asked him to scrounge up a pair of goggles. The conditions outside were perfect — tornado-like gusts and pelting rain — to recreate a past Kodiak sports moment. The current Kodiak duo donned the goggles during their 1,600-meter race, just like Cory Pena did in similar conditions in a home meet against Bartlett in...

First home soccer games canceled
Kodiak High School’s first home soccer match will have to wait.  The club was supposed to make its home debut Saturday against Skyview, but both the boys and girls matches were canceled because the opposing team did not arrive on the island.  Skyview was supposed to arrive on the ferry Kennicott Saturday morning. A delay of the ferry in Whittier forced a late arrival into Kodiak and the cancellation of the matches...

Kodiak rains on Putney's coaching debut
Kodiak Island welcomed back a baseball legend the only way it knew how to with wind, rain and toe-numbing coldness. The conditions made Mark Putney’s debut as Homer’s head coach a memorable one, but for all the wrong reasons. Behind a pitching gem from Jakob Arnold and a three-hit performance from Austin Frick, Kodiak handed Homer a 17-0 four-inning Southcentral Conference loss Friday at a rain-soaked Baranof Fiel...

Nelson to play for UAA
Jerica Nelson was surprised to see a basketball that she never takes out of her room sitting on a table inside Kodiak High School. Her mom sneaked it out of the bedroom for Wednesday’s special occasion.  In front of friends, family and the basketball, Nelson signed a national letter of intent to play women’s basketball for the University of Alaska Anchorage.  “I didn’t know she was bringing it (the ball). It is us...

Kodiak bodybuilder a hit at NPC Champs
Born in El Salvador and raised in Kodiak, Sonia Cortez never thought she would find herself in a little bikini on a stage in front of hundreds of people.  That is where she found herself last Saturday, competing in the National Physique Committee State Bodybuilding Championships in Anchorage.  It might be understated to say she was rattled.  “I was pretty nervous; I had no idea what I was doing,” said Cortez, a 20...

KHS track hosts Seward
It appears Mother Nature will play a role in Kodiak’s home track meets today and Saturday against Seward. The National Weather Service’s forecast for today is rain with wind gusts of up to 35 mph. Saturday is forecasted for more of the same.  Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar is bracing for the worst.  “The important part for our team is to learn how to warm up and stay warm,” he said. “That is our focus. If we get quali...

Kodiak begins conference play
Kodiak’s baseball team begins Southcentral Conference play Friday and Saturday against Homer. And a familiar face will be at the helm of the Mariners. Former Kodiak and George Fox University pitcher Mark Putney took over the head coaching duties from longtime coach Larry Kuhns this season. “I never thought I’d coach Homer, never in my wildest dreams,” Putney told the Peninsula Clarion. It is fitting that his first...

KHS to host inaugural soccer matches
When Steven Bradley moved from California to Kodiak he gave up playing soccer. Not by choice, but because Kodiak High School didn’t offer soccer at the time. “The first thing I looked for was soccer,” Bradley said. “Soccer wasn’t here, so I did baseball.” Flash forward four years and Bradley, a senior, will be playing in the high school’s first home soccer match Saturday against Skyview at Joe Floyd Track and Fiel...
