Kodiak’s boys were in an unfamiliar place when the Prosser/Whitmore Indoor Track and Field Championships ended — last place.

The defending 4A state champions managed only 25 points in the two-day meet to finish last in a field of 12 teams Saturday at the Dome in Anchorage.

“It is a tough place to be; we don’t like it there,” longtime Kodiak coach Marcus Dunbar said. “It leaves lots of room for improvement.”

Kodiak was without a few of its superstars. Junior distance runner Levi Thomet was in California for the Alcaide Invitational, while senior thrower Leo Sega and junior sprinter Jemuel Mangalus did not make the trip to Anchorage.

The Bears would have shot up in the standings had all three been present. Dimond won the team title with 96 points, while West Anchorage finished second with 76 points.

“Those are three big players that will bring more punch power,” Dunbar said. “We weren’t that far out of it.”

Junior Levi Fried led Kodiak with a pair of top five finishes. The defending 800 meter state champion was fourth in the 800 with a time of 2 minutes, 4.49 seconds and was fifth in the 1,600 with time of 4:37.56.

He also anchored the runner-up 3,200 relay team that clocked an 8:37.28 — .32 seconds behind first-place Colony.

“It came right down to the wire. He (Fried) wasn’t happy to lose the photo finish. He made his move a little too early,” Dunbar said. “It was a good learning experience.”

Kordell Pillians finished fourth in the shot put, while Aaron Alonzo was fifth in the 110 hurdles.

Dunbar was also pleased with Jack Hannah’s 1,600 run. The freshman finished 21st, breaking five minutes for the first time with a 4:57.92.

Kodiak’s girls placed 12th out of 12 teams with six points. Dimond won with 96 points, seven points ahead of runner-up Colony.

Sophomore Richelle Walker placed fourth in the discus and sixth in the shot put.

“Walker is still showing lots of potential with a lot more potential to do even better,” Dunbar said.

Dunbar credited the performance of freshman Arielle Himelbloom for setting personal records in the 800 (2:51.5), the 1,600 (6:19.34) and the 3,200 (12:47.2).
