Kodiak’s girls basketball team puts its undefeated season on the line today and Saturday against Northern Lights Conference rival Wasilla.

Top-ranked Kodiak has started the season with a program-best 20 consecutive victories. The Bears are 8-0 in the NLC and have already clinched the top seed for the conference championships that begins next Thursday at Colony High School.

Wasilla is fourth in the NLC with a 4-4 record, 11-8 overall.

The Warriors have won the past three state titles and entered this season with nearly every starter gone from a year ago.

After a slow start, the Warriors have pushed their record above .500.

“Jeannie (Herbert-Traux) is a great coach. She isn’t going to sit back and say, ‘In a couple of years we are going to be good.’ She believes that she can get everything out of her kids and they are going to come and play,” Fogle said.

Kodiak’s lost eight in a row to Wasilla, which includes three losses last season. The Bears last beat Wasilla in 2010 — a 43-41 victory at home. In that game, Joanna Garcia was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 3.1 seconds left. She hit all three free throws that snapped Kodiak’s 23-game losing streak to Wasilla.
