KHS Wrestlers Head to Arctic Games This Week PDF Print E-mail

           The Kodiak Kid Wrestling program held its final tournament on Saturday, wrapping up the short season for most of the club’s younger wrestlers. Coach Kevin Lepola said those above the third grade, including middle and high school wrestlers, will keep wrestling for what is called the “extended season,” and work toward the state tournament in May.
Practice for that begins today, but two wrestlers will be heading north for competition this week as part of the Arctic Winter Games.
            Lepola said KHS Freshman Krystal Fabricante and Junior Joel Valdez will head to Fairbanks this week with Coach Michelle Canete to compete on an international scale.
             “So it’s kind of an ambassador from Alaska if you will. A team that travels. And they have a different style of wrestling one of the days and I think they compete in freestyle and then folkstyle as well.”
            The Arctic Games start on Saturday and run through March 22. The games are a circumpolar sport competition that brings athletes from northern and arctic nations together to promote athleticism and culture. Wrestling is one of about 18 sports featured during the week-long event, including snowboarding, volleyball, figure skating and cross country skiing, among others.

    Going into the Northern Lights Conference championship tournament last week, the Kodiak High School Lady Bears were the odds-on favorite to come back with the championship trophy. After all, they were 22-and-0, and spent most of the season as the state’s top-ranked team. But also toting first-place hardware home were the Kodiak boys, who had been ranked second to the tournament’s host team.
    On Saturday afternoon, both the Kodiak girls and boys defeated Colony on the Knights’ home court to win the championships.
    The Lady Bears started slow, as they did in their opening game against Wasilla on Friday, but after a second quarter rally, it was no contest. Trailing 21-13 half way through the second quarter, the Lady Bears rallied with back-to-back three pointers by Jerica Nelson and Adrian Horn and went on a 15-point run to take the half-time lead 30-23. Kodiak didn’t let up in the second half, outscoring Colony 34-20 to win going away, 64-43.
    Colony Coach Jeff Bowker described the Lady Bears as “a scoring steamroller.”
    Hannah Wandersee led all scorers with 25, while Horn finished with 13, including four three-pointers. Carissa Cannon added 10, and Nelson, who played her freshman and sophomore years with Colony, drained seven for Kodiak.
    On Friday, the Lady Bears trailed the Wasilla Warriors by as much as 8, and by five in the fourth quarter, but rallied to win 55-47. It was only the second time this season Kodiak had not won by double-digits.
    Saturday’s title was the first for a Kodiak girls team since 1985, and the first Northern Lights team not from the Valley to win in 21 years.

    The Kodiak boys also trailed, but it was in the fourth quarter before rallying to beat Colony 56-50. The Bears led by 8 at the half, 28-20, and by 1 at the end of the third, 38-37. Though the Bears outscored the Knights in the fourth, it wasn’t until after Colony had taken a six point lead. Then Kodiak went on an 11-6 run, sparked by clutch free-throw shooting by Alec Canete-Hall, who finished with a game-high of 17, including hitting five of six from the line. Austin Frick had 13 points, and Jemuel Mangalus added 10.

    By virtue of making it to the Northern Lights Conference title game, the Colony Knights, both the boys and girls, will join the Kodiak High School Bears and Lady Bears at the state large school championships next week in Anchorage.

           Part of the Kodiak Kid Wrestling season will come to a close this weekend. The club wrestling organization will host its final tournament on Saturday, and Coach Kevin Lepola said it will be the season finale for the program’s younger wrestlers.
           “We’ll put all the kids in age and weight brackets and let them wrestle out in kind of a round-robin style where everyone wrestles everyone else and points are awarded for pins or minor decisions, major decisions and then the points are tallied after everybody wrestles each other and come out with a winner, first place, second place, third place, and so on.”
            Lepola said there will also be a handful of village wrestlers coming to town for Saturday’s tournament.
            “I believe Old Harbor is bringing in a squad and I think Port Lions is bringing some kids in as well, which is always great. And their numbers vary from year to year. Sometimes we get a lot of kids from there and sometimes not as many as other years.”
           The tournament will be the last for what Lepola calls the “short season,” but some of the older wrestlers, including middle and high school students, will continue on in the club’s extended season.   
     “That starts on Monday and it continues on through state which is the first weekend of May and it’s a lot more intense. It’s five and six days a week. We usually go on Saturdays and do a big run or go over some technique and like I said it’s a lot more intense. And it needed to be for preparation to go up to the valley or Anchorage and wrestle those teams as well.”

           The regular season came a close last week for Kodiak High School’s basketball teams. Both the boys and girls are at Colony High School this weekend for the Northern Lights Conference tournament, where they hope to earn tickets to the state championship later this month.
           This season the players were able to practice and compete in a recently renovated gym at the high school. Amy Fogle coaches the Lady Bears and said she was pleased with the changes to the gym, which included new flooring and bleachers.
            “I think all the improvements we’ve made have been great. I think the floor is really, really nice. I do like the bleachers; it’s nice to have the rails for the older population and getting up and out of the stands. It kind of feels like you’re on top of the crowd, sitting up high. It’s pretty high up there. Anything new and clean is always exciting.”
             David Anderson coaches the boys team and had similar thoughts about the improvements.  
             “Well as much as we get to practice in it, it’s great. Playing in it, the kids love it. It’s a new floor, gives them a little new bounce in there and I think the capacity it holds in there is just awesome. I think it gives a different perspective with the bleachers up as high as they are. You’re looking down on the players instead of looking at them. And you can kind of see what’s going on the floor out there. So I think they did a great job.”
              Up on the mainland, both teams have a first round bye in the region tournament and will begin game play Friday afternoon.
