Kodiak’s Emily Jancauskas (14) and Imee Pagsolingan (23) goes up for a block during a volleyball match against Wasilla earlier this season at Kodiak High School. 

Kodiak volleyball finishes the regular season this weekend at the Dimond/Service Tournament in Anchorage. 

The tournament features 20 teams with pool play games today and bracket play on Saturday. 

Today, the Bears face West Valley (3 p.m.), Dimond (5:45 p.m.), Palmer (6:40 p.m.) and Grace Christian (7:35 p.m.)

The top two teams in each of the four pools advance to the gold bracket, the next two teams to the silver bracket and the final team to the bronze bracket. 

The tournament also includes Eagle River; Homer; Juneau; North Pole; Wasilla; Kenai; Monroe; Service; Soldotna; West Anchorage; Colony; East Anchorage; Lathrop; Nikiski; and Thunder Mountain. 

Kodiak will then have a week off before playing in the Northern Lights Conference Championships that start Nov. 7 in Soldotna. 

The Bears (0-8 NLC, 0-9 overall) will be the No. 5 seed in the three-day postseason tournament. 



Kodiak wrestling will compete in the West Anchorage Classic that begins today. 

The Bears were supposed to travel to Valdez to compete in the Throwdown in Snowtown but opted for a tournament in Anchorage to save money, according to coach Junior Valladolid. 

Kodiak will be joined in the tournament by ACS, Bartlett, Chugiak, Colony, Dimond, Eagle River, East Anchorage, Palmer, Service, South Anchorage, Wasilla and West Anchorage. 

The Bears opened the 2019 season last week by placing 13th at the Houston Altercation.
