Wandersee returns after successful eye surgery
Nolan Wandersee’s wrestling season almost ended in a blur. Two months after being diagnosed with a detached retina, Wandersee made his junior season debut last week, two weeks before the Northern Lights Conference Championships.

Kodiak boys finding success with only eight players
Members of Kodiak’s boys basketball team have no reason to complain about not getting enough playing time. The Bears only have eight varsity players.

An dominating defense

Overall, Kodiak is allowing only 22 points per game for a measly average of 5.5 points per quarter. That has resulted in an 11-0 start...
