Jones has emerged as one of the state’s top breaststrokers
In sports, the name of the second-place finisher is often forgotten. In swimming, it’s often the person in second place who puts a team in position to finish first. Kodiak’s Sammye Jones fits into that category. The senior is not flashy and is often an overlooked piece to the Bears’ success.

The final week of high school football in Alaska is upon us. Last week, Eielson and Soldotna each won state titles in the small and medium school classifications. I picked both of them to win and neither game was close, just as I predicted. I went 3-1 last week to run my season-long total to 63-12. The only game I missed on was South Anchorage’s victory over previously undefeated Palmer in a large-school semifinal...
