Kodiak High’s wrestling team placed third at the Top Dog Invite in October at Nikiski High School. 

Kodiak High School’s first home wrestling meet since 2019 is a big one. 

The Bears are hosting the Northern Lights Conference Championships in the high school gym. The two-day meet begins Friday. 

Joining Kodiak in the field are Colony, Wasilla, Palmer and Soldotna. 

The top five placers in each weight class advance to the Division I boys state championships and girls state championships. The state meet is Dec. 17-18 at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage. 

Kodiak senior Olivia Troxell — a three-time state qualifier — will be attempting to claim her second regional title, the first since 2019. She was runner-up at 119 pounds as a junior. 

She enters this weekend’s meet with a 14-0 record at 112 pounds. 

Kodiak’s girls placed third during the spring meet, while the boys were fifth.

This will be Kodiak’s third home meet since 2017 — the last time the Bears hosted the regional championships.
