For the first time since the 2001 undefeated season, Kodiak’s boys are Northern Lights Conference champions.

The Bears won the title with an entertaining 56-50 win over top-seeded Colony Saturday at Colony High School.

Four players scored in double figures for Kodiak with sophomore guard Alec Canete-Hall leading the way with 17 points. Austin Frick and Scott Garcia each tossed in 13 points, while Jemuel Mangalus added 10 points.

Second-seeded Kodiak built a 10-point lead in the third quarter, but Colony rallied and led 44-38 with 6:34 left in the contest.

Garcia scored the next seven points to put Kodiak back up 45-44.

The game went back and forth until consecutive 3-pointers by Mangalus and Frick put Kodiak ahead for good at 51-47 with just over two minutes remaining.  

Kodiak held NLC most valuable player Damien Fulp scoreless in the first half and 12 points for the game.  

Both Kodiak (16-8) and Colony secured spots at the 4A state tournament that begins March 20 in Anchorage.

This is Kodiak's first regional title since 2001. That year, the team won the state title with a perfect 28-0 record.
