Kodiak’s on-again, off-again volleyball season resumes today at the West Spiketacular at West Anchorage High School.

The Bears have had three weeks of competition and two idle weeks to begin the season.

“I just feel like we have had a slow start to our season,” Kodiak coach Amy Willis said. “I know we had a few weeks of competition, but it just feels like we are moving in slow motion.”

The season picks up steam beginning with the West Spiketacular, a two-day tournament that features 23 teams from around the state.

Kodiak (2-2 Northern Lights Conference, 2-2 overall) doesn’t have an open weekend the rest of the season.

“This is a chance for us to get serious and it is a good start for us,” Willis said.

Willis said she is looking forward to playing Dimond, last year’s state runner-up, at this weekend’s tournament.

“It will be exciting to play against an older, more experienced program and learn stuff — see what we need to work on and see where we might surprise ourselves,” she said.
