It was only fitting that the battle between last year’s small-school and large-school state boys track champions came down to the final event.

Anchorage Christian Schools won the bragging rights by nipping Kodiak by 1.43 seconds in a blazing fast 1,600-meter relay that secured a one-point Kodiak Invitational victory, 67-66, Saturday at Joe Floyd Track and Field.

Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar had a hunch the meet would be decided in the final event, which is why he kept the giant scoreboard updated with the team scores. Kodiak held a four-point lead going into the 1,600-meter relay and needed the win to seal the team victory.

ACS never let that happen as the Lions led from start to finish in the four-lap race and posted the state’s top time this season in 3:35.54. Kodiak’s time of 3:36.91 wasn’t too shabby either — it is the state’s second best time.

This is the second week in a row that Kodiak has been the bridesmaid to ACS in both the team standings and in the 1,600 relay. ACS won the Palmer Invitational, while Kodiak was second.

“We didn’t win the race, but they all ran their best times for the year,” Dunbar said. “I couldn’t have asked them to do anymore than what they did. That was exciting. Fortunately. We don’t have to race that same team at regions.”

Kodiak most likely would have won its final regular season meet, but felt the impact of not having standout distance runner Levi Thomet compete. The junior spent the weekend in a walking boot nursing a sore shin. Dunbar expects the defending 1,600 and 3,200 state champion to be back for this week’s Region III Championships at Palmer.

“We played it cautious … it wasn’t wise for us to do a lot of racing with him and all of a sudden him be worse and can’t run next week,” Dunbar said.

With Thomet out, Kodiak received a breakout performance from senior discus thrower Jeffery Peterson.

Peterson posted an upset victory over one of the state’s top discus throwers, ACS’ Nate Simmers, with a personal-best mark of 120 feet on his fourth and final throw. Simmers, second in the state with a toss of 144-00, only went for 116-03 to finish second.

“Jeff is a kid that works hard all the time,” Kodiak throwers’ coach Jim Schnick said. “He has a great attitude. It is great to see him out here — last time at home and win the event.”

Kodiak’s Levi Fried won the 800 (2:00.01) and the 1,600 (4:38.09), while Jeramiah Black added victories in the 110 (18.1) and 300 hurdles (45.32). Leo Sega won the shot put (44-10), while Kodiak took three of the four relays.

Kodiak’s girls overcame a tremendous effort by ACS’ Tanner Ealum to defeat the Lions 98-30.

Ealum, a sophomore, broke meet records in winning the 100 (12.4), the 200 (26.16) and the 400 (58.21). She was also on the winning 800-meter relay team.

Dunbar said Kodiak’s constancy proved to be too much for ACS.

Rosie Aquino, Ranie Siscar, Zoe Bigley and Richelle Walker were all double-winners for Kodiak.

Aquino won the triple (31-04) and the long jumps (14-05), Siscar took the 100 (18.2) and the 300 hurdles (53.99), Bigley won the 800 (2:34.7) and the 1,600 (5:48.67), while Walker took the high jump (4-06) and the discus (97-03).

Kodiak also won three of the four relays — the 400, 1,600 and 3,200.
