The Soldotna High School "SoHi Pentathlon" was held over the weekend, with the Kodiak girls dominating the event.
Kodiak had four girls finish in the top 10, and seven in the top 13, to win the team title with 69 points to runner-up Soldotna’s 28. No single school dominated the boys’ side. Kenai, SoHi, Seward, Homer and Kodiak had two swimmers each in the top 10, allowing the small Seward squad to win in the team title, scoring 33 points to Kodiak’s 30, Kenai’s 29, Soldotna’s 26 and Homer’s 24.
Kodiak sophomore Jori Lindquist edged last year’s pentathlon winner, Olivia Bowen of Soldotna, for the 2010 girls’ title by just 2-hundreths of a second. Lindquist recorded a total time of 3-minutes, 11-hundredths of a second, to Bowen’s 3-minutes.13-hundreths for the meet’s five events – the 100-meter individual medley, 50 butterfly, 50 backstroke, 50 breaststroke and 50 freestyle.
