Kodiak High School’s swim teams are already emerging as strong contenders in the state after both the boys and girls came in first at a meet last weekend in Homer.

The girls blew away the competition, winning by 92 points. The boys also took first but by a more modest 4-point margin. The regional meet hosted 11 schools.

Coach John Lindquist says Kodiak’s girls are looking very strong this year with no clear regional rival.

The season kicked off at home two weeks ago where the girls swept the challengers from Kenai. The boys faltered, losing by 2 points on the first day and 6 points the second. There are 20 girls and nine boys in competition and captains haven’t been selected yet.

There are a total of six meets scheduled this season plus regional and state championships.
