KHS volleyball reloads for 2014 season
Even though Kodiak graduated seven seniors from last year’s record-breaking volleyball squad, coach Amy Willis isn’t expecting a letdown 2014 campaign. Most of Kodiak’s players will make their varsity debut tonight in a season-opening Northern Lights Conference match at Colony. The two squads meet again on Saturday. “I think a lot of teams are going to overlook us because we just graduated that group,” Willis said...

Pigskin picks: Stumbling through the season
For the third consecutive week I suffered a pair of losses to post a 6-2 record. For the season I stand at 20-6 for a .769 winning percentage — extremely sub-par for me at this point in the season. I misfired on Houston’s victory over Seward and Homer’s win over Barrow. We will try to do better in Week 4, the halfway point of the season. Week 4: Barrow (2-1) at Voznesenka (0-2) — Barrow suffered its first loss of ...

Kodiak football travels to Colony
A week after losing by 48 points to Kenai, Kodiak is now tasked with playing the second-ranked large-school team in the state. The Bears play at 2 p.m. Saturday against Colony in a nonconference game. “Colony has a great program, they have some great athletes and a lot of big kids. It is definitely a challenge,” Kodiak coach Jim Schnick said. “It would be a challenge for anybody … It is a game on the schedule and ...

Bartlett, Soldotna top prep rankings
Bartlett and Soldotna grabbed the top spots in this week’s Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network’s football poll. Bartlett, playing on its new artificial turf field for the first time, defeated Chugiak, 31-20, to steal the top large-school spot away from South Anchorage. South dropped to No. 3 after losing to a team from Texas last week. Soldotna remained the top team in the medium-small school poll after crushing Th...

Lindquist sparkles in debut
Talon Lindquist admitted he was nervous before his first high school swimming meet for Kodiak. He shouldn’t have been. The Bears’ nationally ranked freshman looked like a seasoned swimmer, squashing a pair of school records in a dual meet against Soldotna on Friday at the Kodiak Community Pool. Lindquist broke school records in the 100-yard backstroke and the 200 individual medley, and came close to breaking two m...

Ostrander sets new mark at Fort Abercrombie
The morning before every cross country meet, Kenai’s Allie Ostrander eats a bowl of Wheaties. For extra flavor, she adds a banana. “Probably any old cereal would do, but I like the box. It says ‘breakfast of champions’ — it puts me in the race zone,” she said. Ostrander must have had an extra bowl of Wheaties Friday morning, because she was locked in as she zoomed through Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park at ...

Kodiak stumbles at Kenai
Kodiak’s chances at qualifying for the medium-school football playoffs dwindled Saturday on the Kenai Peninsula. Kenai routed Kodiak, 56-8, in an important Northern Lights Conference game at Ed Hollier Field. The loss dropped the Bears to 1-1 in the NLC (1-2 overall) and made it harder for Kodiak to advance to the postseason for the third consecutive season. Kodiak is not eliminated, but will most likely have to b...

Ostrander breaks Fort Abercrombie record
Kenai's Allie Ostrander pulverized a 28-year-old record on Friday at the Kodiak Invitational. The nationally ranked senior covered the 5-kilometer course in a blistering time of 17 minutes, 34 seconds, breaking Kodiak's Kristi (Klinnert) Waythomas' time of 18:43 set in 1986. Kodiak's Levi Thomet won the boys race in 15:23, three seconds shy of Trevor Dunbar's course record set in 2008. Thomet's time is the second ...

Pigskin picks: Madden 15 keeps football fans occupied
For football fans, Tuesday was a holiday with the release of Madden 15. I picked up my copy before work and stared at coverboy Richard Sherman the entire day — not much work got done that day. Since a Seahawk graced the cover, I thought about leaving the game in the package, but I thought better of it and ripped off the plastic and stuck the disc into the Xbox as soon as I got home from work. I was not disappointe...
