Kodiak’s own Dylan Anthony grabbed his first Great Northwest Athletic Conference outdoor track title Saturday in Monmouth, Ore.

The University of Alaska Anchorage junior won the men’s 5,000 meters with a time of 14 minutes, 34.36 seconds at the GNAC Championships.

Anthony finished 16 seconds ahead of runner-up Victor Samoei of UAA. The field consisted of 16 runners.

Anthony barely missed out winning the 10,000 on Friday. He finished second with a 31:14.64, just .05 seconds behind Samoei.

Anthony’s times did not qualify him for the NCAA Division Championships, but the U.S. Track and Field Cross Country Coaches Association named him to the All-Region team for the Division II outdoor track and field season.

• Trevor Dunbar of the University of Oregon finished fourth in the 1,500 at the Oregon Twilight meet Friday at Hayward Field in Oregon.

The senior clocked a time of 3:41.45, two seconds behind winner Ben Blakenship of team Nike.


In late April, former Kodiak resident Jacques Kaune bowled an 889 series in league play in Pennsylvania.

Kaune rolled two 300 games and ended the third game with a 289 — two strikes shy of a 900-series. His string of 34 consecutive strikes ended when he left the 10-pin.

Kaune, a sophomore bowler at William Penn University, finished 52nd in the country for all college bowlers and was named to the All-American team for the Midwest Conference.
