Kodiak’s J-V basketball teams will get their time in the spotlight this week during the Subway J-V Basketball Tournament. The tournament, which features boys’ and girls’ teams from three visiting schools, begins this Thursday afternoon.

Bears Boys basketball coach Amy Fogle offered some background on the event.

Fogle said that the varsity teams get 20 or more games per season while the J-V teams usually play between 12 and 18 games. She said that playing 3 extra home games is a big bonus for the players.

Fogle’s excited about the tournament too, even though she’ll only be there "in spirit."


(J.V. Tourney 3 "You know anytime … the way around.")

Kodiak’s Subway is footing the bill to bring the J-V teams here. It was Fogle who approached Owner Dan Rohr about the possibility of sponsoring the tournament. Rohr said that Fogles’ reputation for hosting events was one of the reasons he agreed to sponsor this weekend’s tournament.
